Fedora Update Notification

Name        : tomboy
Product     : Fedora 8
Version     : 0.8.1
Release     : 3.fc8
URL         : http://www.beatniksoftware.com/tomboy/
Summary     : Tomboy is a desktop note-taking application for Linux and Unix
Description :
Tomboy is a desktop note-taking application for Linux and Unix. Simple and easy
to use, but with potential to help you organize the ideas and information you
deal with every day.  The key to Tomboy's usefulness lies in the ability to
relate notes and ideas together.  Using a WikiWiki-like linking system,
organizing ideas is as simple as typing a name.  Branching an idea off is easy
as pressing the Link button. And links between your ideas won't break, even when
renaming and reorganizing them.

Update Information:

This update resolves a low severity security issue where LD_LIBRARY_PATH could potentially get set to the current directory if it wasn't set before Tomboy was launched.
