Texstar wrote the other day, "I'm starting an upload of PCLinuxOS 0.92 Test 04 iso in a few minutes and it should be available tomorrow. If there are no big glaring showstoppers then I'm going to simply rename the iso to final over the weekend and add the Nvidia and ATI isos as well.

Thanks to everyone who helped so much getting this release prepared and ready to go."

One tester states, "It is nice to be in a position when the only "bug reports" are cosmetics!"

Another writes, "Tested livecd on both boxes, everything A-OK!

Tested install, first configured my printer and changed a few small configurations. Then added user, changed root password, installed lilo to installs hd, turned on logging. Booted up perfectly with all changes intact, printer working, etc.

Seems like a winner on this end, thanks everyone!"

Although a few little bugs reared up, fixes came fast and furious. According to the following, another upload will probably take place.

Found on the mailing list:

* Fix userdrake to automatically add new user to audio and video group

* Really fix usb sound device from getting first sound device on livecd. Works on hd install without issue.

* Fix redo-lilo script to actually re-write lilo from livecd.

Schedule 0.92 beta release final for Monday Nov 21st.

There's still time to test!

With Assembly, anyone can contribute to open-source software and actually get paid

The open-source movement has produced some of the most widely utilized software in the world, a huge economic value driven by a widely dispersed community who believe contributing good work is often its own reward. Outside of the world of computer science, however, these strategies are still relatively niche. A San Francisco startup called Assembly is trying to change all that, by evolving the open-source model to easily incorporate disciplines outside coding and to include a shared profit motive as well. Today the company is announcing a $2.9 million round of funding it will use to help expand its platform. Read more
