Yves Brungard has announced that the second beta build of the upcoming Mageia 8 release is ready for testing: “We are happy to announce the release of Mageia 8 beta 2. After a long time since beta 1, we look forward to hearing your feedback and thoughts so that we can continue to get Mageia 8 ready for release. As we said in a previous post, a lot of work had to be done for the base system upgrade, Java, Linux kernel and the graphical stack. These upgrades are now in a state that allows for the beta 2 ISO images to be built and tested. Here are some of the major packages included in this release: Linux kernel 5.9.12 (5.10 will land in shortly), glibc 2.32, GCC 10.2.1, rpm 4.16.1, Chromium 87, Firefox 78.5, LibreOffice 7.0.4, Plasma Desktop 5.20.4, GNOME 3.38.1, Cinnamon 4.8.2, Xfce 4.15.2, MATE 1.24. PHP is provided in release 8.0.” Read the rest of the release announcement for further details.
