Mandriva development news

After long period of silence, Mandriva is pleased to give you some official news about the next Mandriva Linux version. And, to compensate for all the time without news, we will give you two releases at once.

Yes, you read it right. In the coming months, not one, but two Mandriva releases will be released!

First, we will release Mandriva Linux 2010.2, with an estimated release date of the December 22nd, as a Christmas gift for you all. Mandriva Linux 2010.2 is a refreshed look at our latest release, Mandriva Linux 2010.1, plus all the security and bugfix updates which were done after its release, plus also lots of improvements, stability and performance fixes in many, many packages.

And, besides Mandriva Linux 2010.2, of course, time has come to announce the Mandriva Linux 2011 release. The Mandriva Linux 2011 release will be done according to the following schedule:

  • Mandriva Linux 2011 Alpha: January 31 2011
  • Mandriva Linux 2011 Beta 1: February 28 2011
  • Mandriva Linux 2011 Beta 2: March 28 2011
  • Mandriva Linux 2011 RC: April 25 2011
  • Mandriva Linux 2011 Final: May 30 2011

Starting with Mandriva Linux 2011 release, the release policy for Mandriva will change to 1 release per year. This will allow us to develop even greater releases, and – of course – will give us more time to test, validate and further improve the overall quality of the release.

The technical specifications and detailed features of Mandriva Linux 2011 will be announced very soon, and the hard – and interesting – work will begin. Stay tuned!
