OpenMandriva Lx Beta has been released

Written by rugyada Saturday, 19 October 2013 19:19


OpenMandriva Lx 2013.0 first beta release is out!
The announcement at OpenMandriva Blog

After months of bug fixing and stabilizing the Alpha, we are happy to announce the availability of OpenMandriva Lx’s first ever Beta.

We’ve put a lot of work into stabilizing the package base and building a solid base for future versions. After this release, work on the new ideas we’ve been collecting can start - people interested in following the development may want to watch Cooker.

We extend our thanks to all users who rigorously tested the Alphas and reported bugs.

Lx has undergone many changes since Alpha, and this release fixes many major bugs reported during Alpha’s testing. Most of the boot issues have been ironed out, and Beta is now more USB boot-friendly.

Lx Beta comes with KDE 4.11, with a focus on a clean and unified desktop. This release comes with a set of four (!) launchers - Lancelot, KickOff, SimpleWelcome and Homerun - for you to try and give feedback. Eventually we’ll settle for just one, the winner based on your feedback.

Installation has also changed. DrakX installer is no longer available. The bundled installer no longer prompts for the removal of unused hardware and language packages.

Dear friends, let's say Good bye! to our friend Ron van Pomeren.  We know him as Arvi Pingus, from Dutch Community MCNL.
He deceased yesterday 25/06/2013.

I met him at Mandriva Assembly, he was the Dutch Community delegate, and had the opportunity for appreciate Ron, his kindness and his joyful behavior.

It's a painful loss. We all will miss him.

May Ron rest in peace.

Condolences to his family from MIB Team.
