UPDATE: Thanks Alberto Ruiz for pointing out that VirtualBox can use .vmdk files, so the VMware image can be used for that purpose.
Thanks to the incredible work of `Zhang “Jesse” Sen <http://blog.zhangsen.org/>`__ and Vladimir Melo, a brand new release of the **GNOME Developer Kit** has been published! “What’s new”, you may ask? Everything, since all packages are built directly from git.gnome.org! :) But that alone is not what makes this release so cool, but the fact that the final image went through a dramatic “diet”, shedding a lot of its “weight” and going from a 1.4GB monster to less than 700MB of pure GNOME goodness!!!
Firefox was replaced by Epiphany and codecs and fancy-Nancy stuff was scrapped to make room for a lightweight release for developers and translators!
So go ahead and try the new images today:
