Cauldron is boiling again: never 2 without 3

Mageia 2 was released 2 weeks ago. The QA and security teams are working hard to fix bugs and provide security updates. It’s time now to think about our next release: no rest for the Brave!

We have now a full plan for Mageia 3, which will be released in spring 2013:

  • Alpha 1: 2012/09/04
  • Alpha 2: 2012/10/04
  • Alpha 3: 2012/11/06
  • Beta 1: 2012/12/12
  • Version freeze: 2013/01/02
  • Development string freeze: 2013/01/02
  • Artwork freeze: 2013/01/07
  • i18n freeze: 2013/01/07
  • Beta 2: 2013/01/11
  • Beta 3: 2013/02/12
  • Release freeze: 2013/02/21
  • Release Candidate:  2013/03/05
  • Final release: 2013/03/20

At the moment, Mageia teams are working hard on specifications for this coming release. In order to improve the way we manage this, a  policy for proposals submission has been released. A template is now to be used so that we can make better choices, given the content of these proposals and the resources to be allocated.

The final list of specifications should be published in about one week, so stay tuned!

    Could you pls. use international date format?

    • Franck says:

      Nitpicking, eh ? Replace the slashes with hyphens and you actually get ISO dates.

        The format, that I am using and the most of Europe with me, at least I think, would be for example: 4. 9. 2012 instead of 2012/09/04 (this look like an American manner: 2012-09-04). For people who aren’t using it, looks it unpleasantly, – and the same situation if there was our variant used for people not using it at all.

    Hopefully you will be including what was not included from Mageia 2’s ideas page!

    I was going to start a forum thread in the Ideas and Sugestions section covering things like this, but this way is even better!

    I await news of the LTS version! Since a Mageia was planning to discuss a possible LTS, but since then no new news. Having to replace annual version is a very short time for those who want to use your old machine to the maximum without giving up a KDE or Gnome desktop …
