Beta milestone is closer to final release, although still in need of more testing and fine-tuning.
Therefore the developers will be glad to read your feedback and bug reports at our forum or at our bug tracking system.
— The kernel has been updated to 5.4.7
— Qt has been updated to 5.14.0
— Plasma has been updated: Frameworks 5.65, Plasma Desktop 5.17.4, Applications 19.12.0
— More alternative desktops are available for testing
— We also provide the OpenMandriva clang compiled kernel, named kernel-release-clang. User can install same version of kernel-release and kernel-release-clang for comparison. Clang is the default compiler in OpenMandriva, but only recently the kernel was made compatible with it. For now, this is experimental
— We also provide Zypper as alternative package manager
