Mandrakelinux 10.2 Beta 1
First beta version of Mandrakelinux 10.2 distribution is out. Three 700 MiB ISO images are available for download with BitTorrent (I recommend Azureus for BitTorrent downloads) and on FTP mirrors listed at the end of Mandrakelinux 10.2 Beta page.
And what is new in this version of one of the most simple to use Linux distro (even my sister uses it on her computer :))? The Linux kernel is at version 2.6.10, KDE is at 3.3.2 (and with some compiler optimizations for faster applications startup) and GNOME is at 2.8.1. They have also moved Mozilla Firefox, Thunderbird and Nvu into main package selection. Moreover there is also the latest version of GIMP 2.2 and OpenOffice.org 1.1.4. CDRecord now has support for DVD+R Dual Layers.
So, whoever is in the mood for some beta testing and bug hunting, go get it and file as many bug reports as possible.
