The OpenMandriva Association is glad to announce the release of OpenMandriva Lx 2013.0 RC1!
RC1 brings many bugfixes since our beta release. The kernel version has been updated to 3.11.6, with several new patches focused on performance (such as BFS, BFQ, and UKSM). We’ve also provided up-to-date and stable user-space libraries and drivers with high hardware compatibility.
RC1 uses KDE 4.11.2 as our desktop for this release, and still provides four launchers (Kickoff, SimpleWelcome, Lancelot, and Homerun) so that users can evaluate the best launcher for their needs and tell us which one they’d like to see as default, which will be chosen in time for RC2.
