The Mageia Community is very happy to announce what will hopefully be the last release before Mageia 7 is final. We all hope that this release builds on the quality of the previous beta releases.
The release process so far has been smooth so we all hope that there are no new release critical bugs found here and that we can get Mageia 7 out into the wild shortly!
If you want to get involved with the final stage of testing, the ISO’s are available to download directly, and by torrent here.
Here are a few release highlights and package versions:
- kernel 5.1.5
- rpm 4.14.2
- dnf 4.2.6
- Mesa 19.1
- Plasma 5.15.4
- GNOME 3.32
- Xfce 4.13.5
- Firefox 67
- Chromium 73
- LibreOffice 6.2.3
More details about what is coming in Mageia 7 are available here.
Assuming that this release candidate doesn’t have any critical bugs, the final release ISO’s can be built, targeting final release in roughly a week or two.
We hope that the release works well for you, but if there are issues please report them to our bugzilla so that we can get around to sorting them for release. If you want to get involved in ISO testing, package or any other aspect of Mageia, there is lots of information here.
A huge hand to all of the people involved with getting this release out of the door, and to all of the testers for giving us the feedback that we have needed to get this release ready.
