+<b>Announcement:</b> GnuCash 2.2.8 Release
+2008-12-14 08:39
+<h2>GnuCash 2.2.8 released</h2>
+  The GnuCash development team proudly announces GnuCash 2.2.8 aka
+  "Crisis-Proof", the eighth bug fix release in a series of stable
+  releases of the GnuCash Free Accounting Software.
+<h4>Getting GnuCash</h4>
+  GnuCash 2.2.8 can be downloaded from gnucash.org or sourceforge.net.
+  It is available as source code.  For the Microsoft Windows operating
+  system there is a self-installing setup program which includes all
+  necessary additional libraries.
+  To install GnuCash on other platforms, users will need Gnome 2, guile,
+  and slib.  Neither the currently used swig nor the previously used
+  g-wrap packages are needed anymore when compiling from tarball or when
+  installing a binary.
