Development Release: OpenMandriva Lx 4.2 Alpha 1



  • Cristina Sgubbi has announced the availability of the initial alpha build of OpenMandriva Lx 4.2, the forthcoming new release of the project’s Linux distribution optimised for desktop use. The new release updates the Linux and all KDE/Qt applications to their latest versions. “Here we have the alpha milestone of the OpenMandriva Lx 4.2 release cycle. An alpha release is primarily for testing and bug squashing. Testing is a critical step during development as all bug fixing will take place during this lapse of time. Therefore we exhort all OpenMandriva users to test our system and report any issue you may find at our forum or at Github Issues. Please note that the development release ‘Update channel’ is set to ‘Rolling’ by default. Major changes since 4.1: the Linux kernel has been updated to 5.7.8; Qt has been updated to 5.15; KDE Plasma has been updated - Frameworks 5.72.0, Plasma Desktop 5.19.3, Applications 20.04.3. Please read more about the new features at What’s New in OpenMandriva Lx 4.2 Alpha.” See the release announcement and release notes for further information. Here are the download links to the the standard or the “znver1” (a special build optimised for AMD processors) editions (MD5, pkglist): OpenMandrivaLx.4.2-alpha1-plasma.x86_64.iso (2,256MB), OpenMandrivaLx.4.2-alpha1-plasma.znver1.iso (2,036MB).
