Mandriva Christmas Present and Beyond

Recommended Posts

Eugeni Dodonov, newly appointed Mandriva Cooker Manager, has posted the details of the next two Mandriva releases as well as announced the new release schedule policy. One of these release comes as a Christmas surprise, something seen from the Mandriva project before.

 

Dodonov posted to the Cooker mailing list that Mandriva will be releasing two releases in the coming months. The first will be seen around December 22, as a Christmas present for all Mandriva users. Mandriva 2010.2 is a freshly updated version of 2010.1, or Mandriva 2010 Spring, with all the security and bugs fixes that have been implemented since 2010.1 was released, "plus also lots of improvements, stability and performance fixes in many, many packages."

 

In addition, Dodonov announced the release schedule for Mandriva 2011. An alpha will be released January 31, 2011; Beta 1 will be released February 28, 2011; Beta 2 on March 28, 2011; Release Candidate on April 25, 2011; and Mandriva 2011 Final should be announced on May 30, 2011.

 

Starting with the 2011 release, Mandriva will change to a one release per year schedule replacing their previous two per year practice. Dodonov said this is to give developers more time to cook "greater releases, and - of course - will give us more time to test, validate and further improve the overall quality of the release."

 

Exact technical specifications for each will be published online in the coming days and weeks on the Mandriva Wiki.

They tried this before, going to a one release per year. Will be interesting to see how long it takes until they revert back again.

I hope they are able to stay with the once per year release cycle. I think it would benefit everybody.

Why not a two or even five year release cycle? I'm waiting for 2018.1 as it might be as good as 2008.1 but updated. :zzz:
