Chiarimenti sulla nuova roadmap

Inviato da inventore1

Flash Newsletter: Mandrakelinux Distribution Roadmap Clarifications

Mandrakesoft has announced a new one year release cycle for its next
distributions. The press release is available at the following URL:
http://www.mandrakesoft.com/company/press/pr?n=/pr/products/2546

Here are some clarifications for Club members and the rest of us.

Limited Edition release

* Club Members will have prior access to the Limited Edition indeed,
before all other users, beginning of April

* There will be a free download available for CDs and DVD, four weeks
after the Club release, 3 CDs, one DVD as usual

* Security updates will be provided. The exact period remains to be
defined, we will let you know as soon as possible.

New release cycle

* There will be Club releases several times a year, plus one annual
Official release. Your input will be highly valuable for designing
the exact form of these Club releases. You dear Club Members can
help us innovate!

* There will be available downloads of the CDs and DVD, in
correspondence with the annual cycle. The only change actually
relates to the Official release cycle and to the name scheme:
Official distros, like the Château Lafleur Petrus, will have the
name of the year. All other production cycles - Cooker, Download,
Community - will remain roughly unchanged.

* The release following the Limited Edition will go out around October
2005 (2006 edition)

* All along the year, Club members will have access to the Club
releases ISOs they're entitled to, through BitTorrent or HTTP. We
might also propose new products, to which Club members will have
prior access of course!

Una nuova roadmap per Mandrake.

Inviato da Pinguino

E' di qualche ora fa il comunicato stampa che annuncia importanti cambiamenti nel sistema di sviluppo di Mandrakelinux.

A seguito dell'acquisizione di Conectiva, Mandrake ha messo mano profondamente al suo ciclo di release. La nuova versione ufficiale di Mandrake non prenderà infatti più il nome di Mandrake 10.2 ma di "Limited Edition 2005". Il prodotto, che non godrà di supporto ufficiale né sarà venduto in versione retail (ma disponibile attraverso il Mandrake Club e il Mandrake Store), consentirà a Mandrake di offrire alla sua utenza le nuove tecnologie (KDE 3.3, Firefox 1.0.1, Gnome 2.8) sviluppate nella "Cooker" permettendogli di concentrarsi poi sulla nuova release che vedrà la luce questo autunno: Mandrakelinux 2006, che si baserà sul merging con le tecnologie di Conectiva. Le release procederanno quindi su base annuale, con il nuovo sistema di "numerazione", con un periodo di test più lungo, un maggiore investimento sullo sviluppo di funzioni aggiuntive e con un pieno supporto: tutte cose necessarie per un'utenza che richiede un perfetto bilanciamento tra novità e affidabilità.

Il comunicato stampa ufficiale è disponibile qui in lingua inglese.

Rilasciata Mandrake Linux 10.2 RC1 PPC

Inviato da Madman

La prima release candidate di Mandrake Linux 10.2 per PowerPC è stata rilasciata: "La prima first release candidate di Mandrake Linux 10.2 per architettura PPC è disponbile su molti mirror FTP. Rispetto al Beta 1, sono stati fatti i seguenti cambiamenti: il sonoro ora dovrebbe funzionare su Mac mini ma il volume, purtroppo, non può ancora essere regolato; i pacchetti necessari per la stampa ora sono nei CD; il supporto per i sistemi con grandi quantità di memoria (maggiore di 1 GB) è abilitato di default nelle opzioni del kernel; non necessita del kernel image 'rs6k', forse ciò risolve il problema al boot 'missing default entry' che si verificava dopo l'installazione."

È possibile trovare ulteriori informazioni nell'annuncio del rilascio e nelle note sul rilascio.

Top Story
----------------------------------------
Mandrakelinux and Conectiva announce merger

The biggest news this week is the merger of Mandrakesoft with the #1
South American Linux vendor, Conectiva. Mandrakesoft is buying all of
Conectiva's shares in a stock swap which will create a new, truly
international Linux vendor. Conectiva's enterprise connections and
know-how in South America and particularly Brazil will give a strong
boost to Mandrakesoft's enterprise development, and its research and
development abilities will combine with Mandrakesoft's to produce a
strong source of open source innovations. Decisions have not yet been
made on the form of the product line-up that the new company will
produce, nor on the name it will take, but we'll be sure to bring the
news to you as soon as it's available. You can read the announcement
of the merger here.

In the Cooker...
----------------------------------------
Mandrakelinux 10.2 Beta 3 released

The development of the new Mandrakelinux continues with the release of
Mandrakelinux 10.2 beta 3. A third beta was not originally planned,
but has been added to further ensure the stability of the release.
Important things to test at this point include the automatic mounting
of USB devices, and Chinese and Japanese input. You can read the
announcement on the Mandrakeclub here and get downloading by FTP or
BitTorrent.

Mandrakelinux 10.2 Beta 1 for PPC

PowerPC users don't need to feel left out of the 10.2 development
process - thanks to the hardworking PowerPC contributors, beta 1 of
Mandrakelinux 10.2 for PowerPC is available too! Lots is new with
this release, most significantly support for the new G5 Macs. You can
read the release notes here and get downloading in the usual places.
And anyone out there who's been tempted to try out the new Mac Mini
but is worried about leaving their Mandrakelinux behind should be
happy to know that both 10.1 and 10.2 run well on the little machine!

Mandrakelinux in the news
----------------------------------------
The media on the merger

The Mandrakesoft / Conectiva merger has been widely and favourably
reported in the media. CNet says "the consolidation will help give
the combined company more heft". The UK magazine PC Pro remarked upon
Mandrakesoft's "Phoenix-like rise from the ashes" and said "The deal
also improves the company's standing in comparison with its bigger
brothers Red Hat and Novell's SUSE". The deal was reported on many
other high-profile sites including Linux Today and Slashdot.

Linux Format picks Mandrakelinux 10.1 for best distribution

The UK magazine Linux Format rounded up fifteen distributions for its
January issue. The winner? Mandrakelinux 10.1! The article itself is
not online, but Distrowatch has a detailed write-up of the write-up
here. Mandrakelinux was picked out for having "the best installation
and configuration tools on the market" and because "we can breeze
through a Mandrakelinux install with our eyes closed". We can only
agree!

Working on Mandrakelinux

The popular site NewsForge has been running a series called 'My
Workstation OS' encouraging people to write in and describe their
favourite operating system to work in. Gary Maxwell picked
Mandrakelinux, and his article is here. His reasons? "For ease of
use, excellent support, and up-to-date packaging, Mandrake is the
best desktop going."

Mandrakesoft Interviews

Mandrakeclub interviews Wobo

Following its interview with Warly last week, this time the
Mandrakeclub interviewed Wobo - otherwise known as Wolfgang Bornath,
one of the longest standing Mandrakelinux contributors. Find out more

Perl.com interviews Rafael Garcia-Suarez

In case you didn't know, Rafael Garcia-Suarez maintains perl and the
urpmi tools for Mandrakelinux. As you can imagine, this makes him
something of a perl guru, and perl.com decided to pick his brains for
the benefit of its readers. Rafael has a sharp sense of humour, too -
when asked what tools Mandrakesoft uses to do automated testing of
graphical Perl applications, Rafael's answer revealed the secret of
Mandrakesoft's success: "Er, interns?" Read more shocking revelations
on the life of a perl hacker here!

New Country Manager in Italy

Hervé Jezequel has been appointed as Mandrakesoft's new Country

experience in dealing with the Italian culture and developing channel
sales, along with his presence in Italy, will allow us to have a
better feel for the market and help us be more responsive to the

possibly the world! Send any questions about Mandrakesoft products in

Mandrakelinux 10.2 beta 1 x86-64

Inviato da Pinguino

Sono disponibili sui mirror i 3 cd della 10.2 beta 1 per processori a 64 bit.

Dal comunicato di Mandrakelinux (http://www.mandrakelinux.com/en/102beta-x86-64.php3):

Quote:

* Prima beta pubblica
* Allineata con la 10.2 per i586 del 25/02/2005.
* I pacchetti di KDE 3.3.2 sono stati compilati con l'opzione "-fvisibility=hidden -fvisibility-inlines-hidden" che riduce la dimensione del codice e ne aumenta le prestazioni.
* Una delle più interessanti nuove caratteristiche della Mandrakelinux 10.2 per x86-64: è possibile installare un gran numero di pacchetti di sviluppo per 32-bit accanto ai loro corrispondenti per 64-bit senza alcun conflitto: per es. è possibile ricompilare Evolution 2.0.4 in versione a 32-bit sul proprio x86-64 senza il comando chroot e senza alcun conflitto con le librerie di sviluppo e gli headers per 64-bit. Tutto ciò in un modo molto semplice:

linux32 rpm --rebuild evolution-2.0.4-2mdk.src.rpm

e funziona!

* NDISwrapper 1.0 include ora il supporto per x86-64.

Un DVD Beta con software aggiuntivo tra cui i driver delle schede video nVidia/ATI, Flash Player, Blackdown.org Java VM è inoltre disponibile per i membri del Club.

Mandrake Linux 10.2 Beta 3

Inviato da Madman

E' uscita la beta numero 3 della nostra distribuzione preferita.

Come era successo per la 9.1, ora abbiamo di nuovo una beta3!
Fino ad adesso sono stati riportati e risolti 2017 bugs, durante lo stesso periodo l'anno scorso al rilascio della 10.0 furono risolti solamente 1600 bugs dei 2100 riportati.
Insomma un ottimo lavoro, considerando il fatto che rispetto alla 10.0 abbiamo 2000 (!) pacchetti in più.

Da questa release ci aspettiamo grandiosi feedback!

Un 'estratto delle nuove features presenti:

Quote:

* kernel 2.6.10
* Glibc 2.3.4 and gcc 3.4.3
* New KDE 3.3.2 is compiled with the '-fvisibility=hidden' option of gcc to accelerate the linkage step at the program start (this option hides all the internal symbols of the application and eases the linker work to start the binary), the latest version of Gnome, 2.8.1, as well as GTK 2.6.1.
* New features during the installation procedure, including a new, more efficient package-processing algorithm and the capability to copy all packages to the hard drive before installation completion.
* Installation may boot from a USB key
* Mozilla-firefox replaces Mozilla
* Gimp 2.2, cdrecord 2.01.01a21 with DVD+R Dual Layers support, OpenOffice.org 1.1.4, Postgresql 8.0, MySQL 4.1.9
* new tool: Drakstats
