Accompanying the release of all of the GNOME v2.14.0 goodies is the Nettool availability. GNOME Nettool provides a user interface for some command line networking tools such as a ping or whois. Only two changes are in this Nettool 2.14.0 release compared against the 2.13.91 build, it fixes a error when dealing with gtk_init_with_args and there are three updated language translations.
