Mandriva made some changes to their release cycle. They had dropped the 6 month release cycle originally about concerns that they were too bleeding edge and often too quick to add new features without sufficient testing (remember Kat?). Now they have gone to a "service pack" style release cycle. They are releasing a completely new base system once a year, and upgrading the desktop and utilities twice a year. So the kernel and base system will be refreshed at the release of Mandriva 2008.

This is a true point release to bring in the new features of Gnome and KDE and the 3D gadgets without breaking compatiblity.

Glibc is part of base.

I have been running the beta for a couple of weeks now and it fixes A LOT of bugs and annoyances that I had had with 2007.0
