Mageia 3 Beta 2 akhirnya Dirilis

Anne Nicholas selaku leader Mageia baru saja mengumumkan rilis Mageia 3 beta 2 hari ini via twitter dan blog Mageia.

Beta 2 ini mengalami keterlambatan rilis karena adanya bug besar dalam kernel untuk fungsi USB serta kegagalan build server mageia dalam melakukan mass build beberapa pekan yang lalu.

Secara umum Mageia 3 beta 2 tetap akan mewarisi budaya penggunaan software yang free (terbuka) dan tidak ada rencana untuk membuka peluang menggunakan hal yang propietary. Hal ini termasuk dengan dihadirkannya beberapa driver Broadcom versi free di Mageia 3.

Mageia 3 beta 2 juga hadirkan LibreOffice 4.0 RC2. Berikut kutipan resminya:

We are reaching the final run for Mageia 3 release: beta 2 isos are available for tests. This was a real release full of server failures and bugs . Still, the QA team did a fantastic work as usual.

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 for the hardware that still needs the proprietary driver.

This release comes also with the brand new vesion of LibreOffice, the 4.0.0 RC2 version.

The time is now getting short before the final release. Your tests are essential to make Mageia even more reliable and usable. So we will get many more nice reviews.

Enjoy!
