The OpenMandriva Association is glad to announce the release of OpenMandriva Lx 2013.0 RC1! RC1 brings many bugfixes since our beta release.
The kernel version has been updated to 3.11.6, with several new patches focused on performance (such as BFS, BFQ, and UKSM). We’ve also provided up-to-date and stable user-space libraries and drivers with high hardware compatibility. RC1 uses KDE 4.11.2 as our desktop for this release, and still provides four launchers (Kickoff, SimpleWelcome, Lancelot, and Homerun) so that users can evaluate the best launcher for their needs and tell us which one they’d like to see as default, which will be chosen in time for RC2.
RC1 also includes the OpenMandriva Management Control Centre – a useful and intuitive tool to manage your system. You can use it to manage software, configure your video card, add or remove users from the system, and more!
We’ve fixed over 75 bugs since our beta release – help us add to the count by filing bugs whenever you see one!
According to schedule, RC2 is only about a week away from this release! We’re working fast to push out our final release soon, so please be sure to test and give us feedback about what can be done!
Join the fun!
