Congratulations to the Portland team!  This beta release of the
xdg_utils demonstrates to the world that the desktop development
community is serious about giving application vendors a singular view of
the linux desktop.

The following announcement will be hitting the wire today!


Note the supporting statements from the KDE community, the GNOME
community, freedesktop.org, RealNetworks, Turbolinux, Open Country, and

Rumor has it that that the recent release of the Google Earth for Linux
included pre-beta xdg_utils tools.
