2008-12-30 00:00:00.0 Mandriva Linux 2009.1 Alpha 1 is available    View
Major new features As this is an early pre-release, the major changes are mostly in the area of included third-party software. The planned changes to Mandriva's own tools and systems are not ready for inclusion in a public pre-release.
2008-11-18 00:00:00.0 Mandriva One 2009 "Xfce" has been released    View
The Mandriva community is proud to offer another Xfce edition to the users. This edition is not a Mandriva product (so do not expect any kind of support directly from Mandriva), but has been completed with a great cooperation between the company and the community. We tried our best to provide the best experience possible using Xfce Live but so far some issues still stand. We do not consider those issues blocking, but we'd rather mention them here so you know what to do in case you encounter those problems. This edition contains bug fixes as available on the mirrors on 23 October, which should solve some installations and usage issues.

Major new features
  • KDE 4.1

  • KDE has been updated to version 4.1 final. An initial implementation of the standard Mandriva widget theme, Ia Ora, for KDE 4 is also included. This still does not represent the final appearance of Mandriva Linux 2009, as the Ia Ora window manager theme and an overall visual theme (including desktop backgrounds and so on) have not yet been added, and other appearance details may still be changed. Translations are also not yet complete, so you may find some areas of the desktop are not translated into your language if you use a language other than English. This will be corrected prior to the final release. 4.1 is the version of KDE that will be included in the final Mandriva Linux 2009 release, so it is particularly important that you report any significant bugs in it to Mandriva so they can be fixed.
  • GNOME 2.23.5

  • The latest development release of GNOME (working towards the stable 2.24 series, which will be used in Mandriva Linux 2009) is included. Please note that the Evolution mail client is somewhat buggy in handling IMAP accounts in this release.
  • Mozilla Firefox 3

  • The new version of Mozilla Firefox is now the default in this pre-release. As we are still in transition from Firefox 2 to Firefox 3, both versions are provided in this pre-release; version 2 is in the mozilla-firefox package, while version 3 is in the firefox3 package. This is a temporary measure during the transition.
  • Splashy replaces bootsplash

  • The Splashy system is now used for displaying a 'boot splash' (the graphical screen you see during the boot process), rather than the old bootsplash system. Splashy is a more modern and actively maintained system which does not require large amounts of code to be added to the kernel, as was the case with bootsplash. It also provides some new features that were not available in bootsplash. Please report any problems you notice with the boot image, as they are likely related to this change. Please note also that graphical rendering is not the final one. Splashy theme will be improved.
  • Synchronization support for Windows Mobile 2003 devices, tethering support for Windows Mobile 5+

  • This pre-release includes the new version 0.12 of the synce framework for supporting synchronization of Windows Mobile devices. With this update, support has been added for easy synchronization of Windows Mobile 2003 and earlier devices (previously, easy support was only available for Windows Mobile 5 and later devices). For instructions on synchronizing with Windows Mobile 2003 and earlier devices (and updated instructions for synchronizing with Windows Mobile 5 and later devices), see this page, but please note that unfortunately no synchronization is yet possible with KDE 4's PIM applications (kmail, kontact etc) as there is no KDE 4 opensync plugin available, so synchronization is only possible with GNOME and KDE 3. Kernel support has also been added for tethering using Windows Mobile 5 and later devices - that is, using them as a modem, so you can get an internet connection on your computer using the data connection available on your Windows Mobile phone / PDA. It should be possible to configure this by using the Mandriva Control Center's network configuration tool, but this has not yet been fully tested.
2008-07-12 00:00:00.0 Mandriva Linux 2009.0 Alpha 2 has been released    View
This alpha introduces several significant changes, most obviously the inclusion of KDE 4 - 4.1 beta 2, specifically - as the default version of KDE, and the latest development version of GNOME, 2.23.4. The kernel has also been updated to release 2.6.26rc7. We emphasize that the KDE change is a major one that is not yet entirely completed and likely to cause many bugs. As always - but more importantly than ever - we remind you not to use pre-releases in any critical situation; install them only on a test system or partition, or in a virtual machine. Additionally, we strongly discourage using this pre-release to upgrade from any earlier release of Mandriva Linux, as the transition process from KDE 3 to KDE 4 is not yet fully implemented and you are likely to end up with an unusable system.
2008-05-06 00:00:00.0 Mandriva Linux 2008.1 "Xfce" has been released    View
Thanks to the efforts of the Mandriva Linux Xfce development community, an Xfce edition of Mandriva Linux 2008.1 One is now available. Just like the KDE and GNOME editions of One, this is an installable live CD edition of Mandriva Linux 2008.1, but this time featuring Xfce as the desktop environment. As with the other One editions, three images are available, with different sets of languages on each. This is an unofficial release, but the Xfce development volunteers will attempt to address any problems or questions about this release.
