Mageia 4 Alpha 1 Brings Freshest KDE and GNOME

Filed under
Linux

There have been several exciting release announcement in the last few days and three of them are from some of my favorite projects. openSUSE 13.1 Milestone 4 is out and ready for abuse and Sabayon 13.08 finally brings systemd and GNOME 3.8 to its users. But perhaps most exciting is the announcement of Mageia 4 Alpha 1.

Claire Robinson, aka MrsB, announced the first "proper alpha" of Mageia 4 and we are officially on our way. The live ISOs arrived Saturday with developmental builds of upcoming GNOME and KDE desktops. Robinson also said work has begun on implementing the accepted new features and many updated packages are already in Cauldron.

Fedora: The Latest

  • New "remi-php71" repository

    As noted by my colleague on his blog the first round of F24 Updated Lives are now available and carry the date 20160720, Also as mentioned last week on his blog F23 Respins are not going to be actively made, however we and the rest of the volunteer team will field off-off requests as time and resources permit. We are considering a new/second tracker for the Updated Spins but as of today there are only .ISO files available at https://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/live-respins [shortlink] F24 Live-Respins . The F24 respins carry the 4.6.4-200 Kernel and roughly ~500M of updates since the Gold ISOs were released just 5 weeks ago. (some ISOs have more updates, some less)
