All of OpenMandriva would like to say big Thank You to our developers team, who did a great job for Alpha2!
We also congratulate Tomasz (TPG) on his role as a project manager. He has done an excellent job in maintaining the focus of the development team in what was to turn out to be a huge amount of work. The work started out with a newly released gcc, followed by a rebuild of the Main repository which resulted in 829 failed packages, a new version of KDE and a completely broken Java Stack.
What we have now is only around 100 failed packages (some of them redundant no doubt), A Java stack that works well enough to install the Eclipse development environment; which means it works very well indeed!. A fully rebuilt release of KDE 4.12.2. In addition to all this there is a new and attractive theme and a kernel release that is only days old.
A Virtual Toast to the team!
