New Mageia Forums Bring Community Together

Filed under
Linux
Web

New Mageia forums were announced today as "the official portal for the Mageia community: support, distro testing reports, contributions, discussions...." Any distribution worth their salt has a forum for users to mingle with other users, developers, and managers. Forums are usually the first place anyone with a problem or suggestion goes. So, in the evolution of what promises to be a major distribution, the official unveiling of the forums is a milestone worth noting.

The Mageia forums is powered by phpBB. phpBB is a popular Open Source bulletin board application used by many projects such Gentoo, Mandriva, Debian User Forums (not an official Debian project), and MEPIS Community Forum; so you'll probably recognize the look and operation.

The most fundamental news is about MATE Desktop is now completely ported to GTK+3 leaving behind GTK+2. You may be interested seeing few changes and I have tried Ubuntu MATE 17.04 Alpha 2 to review MATE 1.17 below. Enjoy MATE 1.17! Read more Also: What's up with the hate towards Freedesktop?
