A promise for the best until OpenMandriva does better: OMLx 4.0 Beta

Dear Community,
Our first release in 2019 is OpenMandriva Lx 4.0 Beta, a close preview of the upcoming final release.

Since Alpha1, OMLx 4.0 got a huge number of fixes and improvements.
You may already be aware of some of them having read OpenMandriva Lx 4.0 Alpha1 follow-up, some more came afterwards.

Live mode:
ISO menu new entries for language and keyboard preference
Upon user’s request, KPatience card games have been included in ISO (live mode only)

Calamares new features:
Easy swap partition option
Calamares log copied to successfully installed system
Automagically removing all unused languages at the end of installation
