Mageia 3 Beta 2
Anne Nicolas has announced the availability of the second beta release of Mageia 3: "We are reaching the final run for Mageia 3 release - the beta 2 ISO images are available for tests. We will need your feedback on the Broadcom wireless chipset. We intentionally removed all proprietary drivers for it. So it comes configured using only the free one. This is a test to check support by the free drivers. If in some way we get too many failures, we will revert it to the hardware that still needs the proprietary driver. This release also comes with the brand-new vesion of LibreOffice, the 4.0.0 RC2 version." Read the brief release announcement and the more detailed release notes for more information and a list of known issues.
