Hi guys,

A new GDM login theme was put into rawhide a few days ago.  The design
is by Diana Fong and the implementation is by Máirín Duffy and me.

For most people it should be on by default, but for those of you who
updated gdm from to before release at any
point, you won't get it enabled by default because of a bug in settings
migration (bug 177443).  If you want to use the new theme, you can
enable it by running /usr/sbin/gdmsetup and selecting the "Fedora
Bubbles" theme.  Alternatively, you can go back to complete stock
defaults by running

  sh -c "echo > /usr/share/gdm/config/gdm.conf-custom" 

as root.
