Fedora Update Notification

Name        : gnome-session
Product     : Fedora 15
Version     : 2.91.93
Release     : 1.fc15
URL         : http://www.gnome.org
Summary     : GNOME session manager
Description :
gnome-session manages a GNOME desktop or GDM login session. It starts up
the other core GNOME components and handles logout and saving the session.

Update Information:

A  gnome-session release that contains a number of improvements around error handling and robustness:
* Better fatal error handling in general, including specific handling when required components fail
* Improve wording of fallback dialog
* Avoid double-checking between gdm and gnome-session in gnome-session-check-accelerated-helper
* Switch to using seconds for idle time
* Honor disable-log-out and disable-user-switching lockdown settings
* Change format of .session files in a incompatible way; this is now documented in the gnome-session man page
* Update gnome-session-quit man page
* Enforce the use of required components in the session
* Deal with conflicts between Provides in different applications by only having one provider running; this was only working well for Provides defined in the session definition
* Use app-id when saving session instead of startup-id for .desktop
* Explicitly require gnome-shell/gnome-panel in .session files, instead of using providers
* Clean up saved session on logout if session is not getting saved
* Use "computer-fail" icon from theme instead of our own sad-computer
* Fix some gnome-shell/gnome-session interaction issue on logout, when a third application cancels logout
* Code cleanups

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use
