It really doesn’t seem very long since we bid farewell to Mageia 1 but it is time for us to wave a fond goodbye to Mageia 2 as well.
Mageia 2 was released on May 22nd 2012 and so is due to reach its end-of-life on November 22nd 2013, which is this Friday! You can see the lifecycle of Mageia releases here. There will be no further updates issued for Mageia 2 after this date so if you haven’t yet upgraded to Mageia 3, it is now time.
A huge thank you to all who contribute to make Mageia what it is today, and what it can become. People make Mageia, there are no employees, so if you reported a bug, fixed a bug, donated money, posted on the forum or mailing lists, helped with testing, documentation, translation, artwork, emails or even just mentioned Mageia to your friends, this includes you!
If you would like to get more involved, whatever your skill level or free time, there are lots of things you can do to help and you will be most welcome. It is very rewarding to know that you helped to make Mageia!
