The big news for Mageia 6 is that we are entering release freeze imminently, this means that any further updates to Cauldron must be for a very specific reason, like a critical bug fix or similar. This will allow for the final ISO building and testing get underway, so Mageia 6 will be released soon.

There are some shows and events coming up soon, so we are looking to get in new goodies and to replace the used stock, one of the ideas that we were going to try was badges, this is one of the designs we were thinking of, what do you think of this? We were also looking for other ideas, currently, we have stickers, pens, USB keys and t-shirts, there was also a cup design, is this something that you would like to see at an event, or is there something else that you think would be good to have?
