Summer news


Here are some quick news about the distribution:

  • OpenMandriva Lx 4 is getting closer, Cooker already contains reworked base system including rpm4, dnf, kernels 4.17/4.18, glibc 2.27, clang 7, gcc 8.1, Python 3.7, Qt 5.11.1, KDE Frameworks 5.47, Plasma Desktop 5.13.2, KApps 18.04.2, LibreOffice 6.0.2
  • alternative desktops LXQt 0.13.0 and Lumina 1.4.0 are also available
  • OMLx4 will include complete ports to aarch64 and armv7hnl platforms
  • A RISC-V board has arrived - now we can start porting to that first open source CPU (this is not expected to finish in time for 4.0)
  • We’re about to start a mass rebuild of everything that will expose stuff that hasn’t been updated for a long time (esp. in contrib), to be either fixed or removed
