As outlined in the Mageia roadmap, here comes ‘Primavera’, the second alpha release. Again, this has been a very busy month: our build system is now running fully and the list of supported software has grown to over 6,100 source RPMS, including full integration of LibreOffice and Eclipse, RPM 4.8.1 and KDE 4.6.1. Now we need you for tests! Alpha 2 is available through two DVDs in 32-bit and 64-bit flavours. You can also find a dual CD ISO image, including both 32-bit and 64-bit architecture for minimal installation.
