OpenMandriva 2013.0 RC1 Released!

Akhirnya saat-saat yang ditunggu tiba, OpenMandriva 2013.0 RC1 hadir tepat sesuai jadwal. Seperti kita ketahui, sejak 2012, Mandriva secara resmi mengakhiri pengembangan Desktop Linux Mandriva dan menyerahkan sepenuhnya pengembangan distro lanjutan dari Mandriva desktop tersebut ke komunitas. Akhir tahun 2012, Yayasan OpenMandriva resmi dibentuk dan mulai bekerja menyiapkan OpenMandriva 2012.0 yang semula sempat dirilis sebagai Moondrake 2012 beta dan akhirnya dibatalkan dan mengambil langkah merilis dengan nama OpenMandriva Lx 2013.

Versi RC1 ini dirilis tepat tanggal 8 November 2013 (walaupun di Cooker — milist pengembang OpenMandriva — sudah tersedia sejak awal November 2013). Sejumlah hal yang menarik dari distro OpenMandriva Lx 2013.0 RC1 ini antara lain:

– Rilis pertama dari OpenMandriva Foundation
– Merupakan hasil rilis komunitas yang didukung resmi oleh Mandriva SA (Perancis), Mandriva Brazil (Connectiva) dan Mandriva Rusia (ROSA Lab).
– Dirilis dalam 1 paket dekstop saja yaitu KDE, walaupun bisa dipasang berbagai desktop lain
– Menggunakan KDE 4.11.2 (stable terbaru)
– Menawarkan 4 launcher menu sekaligus: 1) KickOff (bawaan KDE4), 2) SimpleWelcome (bawaan sejak Mandriva 2011), 3) Lancelot dan Homerun
– Meneruskan tradisi untuk menghadirkan Mandriva Control Center (MCC) menjadi OpenMandriva Lx Management Control Center (OpenMandriva Lx MCC)

Berikut kutipan rilis resminya:

The OpenMandriva Association is glad to announce the release of OpenMandriva Lx 2013.0 RC1!
RC1 brings many bugfixes since our beta release. The kernel version has been updated to 3.11.6, with several new patches focused on performance (such as BFS, BFQ, and UKSM). We’ve also provided up-to-date and stable user-space libraries and drivers with high hardware compatibility.

RC1 uses KDE 4.11.2 as our desktop for this release, and still provides four launchers (Kickoff, SimpleWelcome, Lancelot, and Homerun) so that users can evaluate the best launcher for their needs and tell us which one they’d like to see as default, which will be chosen in time for RC2.

RC1 also includes the OpenMandriva Management Control Centre – a useful and intuitive tool to manage your system. You can use it to manage software, configure your video card, add or remove users from the system, and more!

We’ve fixed over 75 bugs since our beta release – help us add to the count by filing bugs whenever you see one!
According to schedule, RC2 is only about a week away from this release! We’re working fast to push out our final release soon, so please be sure to test and give us feedback about what can be done!

Join the fun!
