It’s been a great run, but all good things must end. Or at least, upgrade to a greater thing.
Since Mageia 3 was released in May 2013 our packaging and security teams have provided hundreds of updates (actually 1136 source packages in the Core repository, that accounts for almost 9000 binary packages), all of them tested and validated by our QA team.
As we announced in our earlier blog post, Mageia 3 has now reached the end of its product life. This means that we will not be providing any more security or bugfix updates for Mageia 3.
In order to keep your systems secure and functioning properly, you should upgrade any Mageia 3 systems that you still have to Mageia 4 as soon as possible.
And just in case you need another incentive to upgrade, Mageia 5 is coming soon (the final release should be at the end of January 2015). Mageia 5 will be our best release yet, and we only support upgrading to it from Mageia 4, so upgrading now will mean you will be ready to go when Mageia 5 comes around.
So head on over to this wiki page and upgrade your system today.
