Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris The first release candidate of Mandriva Linux 2008, codenamed Copernic, is now available. The release notes are available here. A guide to major new features (some of which are not yet implemented in this release candidate) is available here, and the detailed technical specifications are available here. This release candidate is available as a three CD or one DVD Free edition (containing no non-free software or drivers) for the x86-32 and x86-64 architectures, with a traditional installer, and as a mini-CD edition for both x86-32 and x86-64 architectures. A One combined live/install CD edition will be released in the near future (problems with unionfs prevented the One edition from being release at the same time as the other editions).

Anybody know of a torrent for this? The mandriva docs only reference ftp mirrors.

We don't do torrents for beta releases - the demand is not enough to make it necessary. Our FTP mirrors can easily cope with the demand.

If you're in the U.S. I'd recommend downloading from ncftp ftp://carroll.cac.psu.edu/pub/linux/distributions/mandrivalinux/de... , it's a very fast mirror.
