Warren Woodford of MEPIS has built KDE 4 Beta 1 live DVDs to verify the compatibility of KDE 4 with SimplyMEPIS 7.x. Both 32-bit and 64-bit editions are available. They are about 1 GB each and include all of the KDE 4 applications that are working at this time. KDE 4 Beta 1 is a very early release and is meant for developers, testers, and reviewers. The live DVDs were built using a MEPIS 7.0 Etch core and include the usual MEPIS kernel and hardware compatibility features. Since KDE 4 is functionally different than KDE 3 and also in an early beta state, a minimal KDE 3 installation remains on the disk to facilitate exploration by the user.

2005-08-17 00:00:00.0 Test release of MEPIS version SimplyMEPIS 3.3.2.test02 is Availab    View
MEPIS has released the test version "SimplyMEPIS 3.3.2.test02". It is now available for public testing via the MEPIS Subscribers Site and at public mirrors.

Warren said "The big news in 3.3.2 is Desktop OnTheGo. With it, you can take your desktop everywhere there is a machine with a compatible version of Linux. For now, that means MEPIS or a MEPIS based product from Technalign, SimpleICT, and Forensic Computers. It works fine from CD as well, so all you need is a machine where you can boot MEPIS from CD. We are exploring the possibility of OnTheGo being bundled with other versions of Linux and of an OnTheGo boxed product."

It can be downloaded from ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/mepis/testing/SimplyMEPIS-3.3.2.test02.iso.
