Vanessa Wall mengumumkan ketersediaan rilis alpha kedua Mandriva Linux 2010:
Mandriva Linux 2010 Alpha 2 is now available on public mirrors. This alpha is available only through ‘Free’ editions, 32-bit and 64-bit DVDs. Despite our planning modification (if you haven’t heard it already, Mandriva Linux 2010 will be released on November 3rd, 2009), we were able to provide this alpha 2 release sooner than expected. Among many things, the following components have been updated in alpha 2: KDE 4.3 RC 3; GNOME 2.27.5, including new client-side window GTK+ feature (help to prevent flickering); Linux kernel 2.6.31-rc4, X.Org Server 1.6.3 with latest driver for Intel graphic chipset (should improve performance and stability).
