Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris The first pre-release of Mandriva Linux 2009 Spring is now available. This alpha concentrates on updating to the major desktop components of the distribution, including KDE 4.2 Beta 2, GNOME 2.25.2, Xfce 4.6 Beta 2, X.org server 1.5, and kernel 2.6.28 rc8. It is also the first distribution to introduce the major new Tcl/Tk release, 8.6. The alpha is available only in the DVD Free edition with a traditional installer and no proprietary applications; future pre-releases will add the live CD One edition with proprietary drivers. Please help test this first pre-release and report bugs to Mandriva.

We'd rather get the changes from 1.5 done and stable before deciding whether to go with 1.6.

Adam

i thought you were leaving Mandriva? did they re-hire you?

but yeah just seems more viable to use X-Server 1.6.0 as that will have all the bug fix's in that, that didnt make it into 1.5.x series
