It's no secret that Slackware 10.2 was released yesterday. This was big news and headlined many sites as well as being announced on DistroWatch with the links to download torrents. Slackware puts out a new release once or maybe twice a year if the community is lucky, so when they do release a new version, it's big news. I, like many of you, have been on pins and needles for several weeks now since hints of a impending new release leaked out. Then anticipation grew when the changelog of last week made the press announcing 10.2 was almost ready and should be out maybe by Tuesday. Torrents were made public yesterday and I grabbed my place in line. Excitement overwhelmed me as I booted the install disk. I was not disappointed in what I found.

As we continue our coverage of the Mandriva 2006 development cycle, this time we test the upgrade procedure. In addition we also test the newer "isos on the disk" install method. Introduced last release (10.2/2005) this newest install feature is quite exciting. It didn't function in one of the first betas, but does it work this time? And how did the upgrade go? Did all my data get lost? Am I plagued with crashes and lost configurations? And was anything new to behold?
