As Philae, Mageia 3 is running out of batteries…


(Source: xkcd)

As you all know, we can’t maintain Mageia releases forever. And it’s time to say goodbye to Mageia 3. After Wednesday the 26th of November, this release won’t benefit from any more security or bugfix updates. This will allow QA team to give more time for polishing our coming Mageia 5.

So you have only one week left to upgrade to Mageia 4 if you want to keep an up-to-date system. Do not hesitate to use our mailing-lists, forums or IRC channel to speak about it and ask for help if needed.

See for more details.

The various ways of upgrading from Mageia 3 to Mageia 4 are described in this page.

    I very well understand the reason why you are dropping support before a new release, none the less it would be great if it would be possible to skip every other release and either follow the even or the odd releases on production sytems…
    which there is in any case no support for upgrade paths from 2 to 4 or 3 to 5 😉

    whatever… I’m looking forward to the new release, it’s already pretty uable on my old netbook I’m using for testing.
