Mandriva 2011 Delayed Due to Major Changes

Filed under
MDV

Mandriva 2011 has been delayed primarily because of the team's major change to RPM5. RPM5 is a fork of RPM, (Red Hat Package Management) which was currently at 4.8.1, that offers faster performance and fewer operational errors. Because a preview was promised today, a Mandriva Technology Preview is being released to showcase some of the newest changes.

The Mandriva 2011 Technology Preview showcases some of the planned features of Mandriva 2011 currently available in Cooker and the upcoming Alpha. This includes native systemd, Networkmanager support, KDE 4.6.0, Linux 2.6.37, Firefox 4 beta 10, X.org X Server 1.9, Clementine 0.6 and lots of software updates. Most significantly, today's preview introduces the new ISO image version.
