Filed under
MDV

Mandriva Linux 2010 Spring’s development planning is on track. Latest release helped to fix many bugs and improve quality of your favorite distribution.

As explained previously on this blog, Mandriva is in discussions to find new ways to improve means for our distribution, its community and its “place” in Free Software ecosystem. Therefore, our planning will be modified a little. We plan to add a second RC release, available for tests on Tuesday June 1st, as always on all public mirrors. Final version should be released soon after this RC2, with new clothes, but still in line with Mandriva Linux project spirit.

Next stop is RC2, all your tests are welcome, as usual!

Free Software yours,
Mandriva team
