SUSE 10.1 Beta NINE?

OMG, I see a beta 9 directory showing up on mirrors around the world. Does this mean yet another beta instead of a release candidate? What does this mean for the release schedule?

According to the Roadmap, beta 9 is due out on March 31, that's today already in some parts of the world. We can now expect a release candidate on April 12. SUSE Linux 10.2 Alpha 1 is still scheduled for June 16.

UPDATE:

In a message from Andreas, the beta 9 will be released sometime today or tomorrow, with the first release candidate expected on or about April 12 and final release candidate on or about April 25.

He states:

We have looked at the current state of SUSE Linux and decided that
we're not ready yet to call this weeks build an RC1, there are far too
many open BLOCKER bugs and also some changes that need additional
testing. We therefore have to delay RC1 a bit, the updated schedule
is as follows:

Beta9: 2006-03-31 [1]
RC1: 2006-04-12
Goldmaster[2] Release: 2006-04-25

RC1 is followed by a few RCs, we will not put out complete ISOs for
the RCs, just delta-ISOs and update the repositories. The final RC
will then be made available on the 25th of April,

Andreas

Footnotes:
[1] or 2006-04-01 depending on how fast we can feed the mirrors
[2] Goldmaster is the name for the final Release Candidate (RC)

Meizu Pro 5 Ubuntu Edition review

The Meizu Pro 5 is the latest flagship smartphone to run on Canonical’s Ubuntu operating system. Ubuntu is designed to work across all device types – including mobile, tablets, convertibles and desktops – using a common core code. This is similar to Microsoft Windows 10 Mobile. However, unlike Microsoft’s code, Ubuntu is totally open source and has largely been developed and improved by the desktop OS’s millions-strong user base. This means the OS is capable of evolving and changing at a great pace and has update cycles that would make most sysadmins weep. Read more
