Very well done to all involved.
Could I perhaps suggest a minor change to the wording of this
announcement for future releases. The current wording seems to imply
that the Microsoft Windows version of the main release, and the 'other
platforms' are an afterthought.
How about something like:
GnuCash 2.2.5 can be downloaded from gnucash.org or sourceforge.net. It
runs on most flavours of Linux, together with Mac and Microsoft Windows.
It is available as source code. For many Linux distributions, pre-built
packages are available. For the Microsoft Windows operating
system there is a self-installing setup program which includes all
necessary additional libraries.
Hope this helps, Conor O'Neill
