Mageia Blog (English) : Announcing Mageia 7 Beta 3

17 de Abril de 2019, 9:33, por Planet Mageia (English) - 0sem comentários ainda

Everyone at Mageia is very happy to get the final beta release before Mageia 7 out for testing! We all hope that this release builds on the quality of the previous two beta releases and that with the extra tests from the community will put Mageia 7 in a good place for the coming release candidate.

There is still lots to be done before the final release, and the more tests that we can get, the better. There have been large updates to Qt and Plasma, as well as some other key components since beta 2, with the new artwork for Mageia 7 almost ready for integration too.

The ISO’s will be available to download directly, and by torrent here.

Here are a few release highlights and package versions:

  • kernel 5.0.7
  • rpm 4.14.2
  • Plasma 5.15.4
  • GNOME 3.32
  • Xfce 4.12
  • Firefox 66
  • Chromium 73
  • LibreOffice 6.2.2

More details about what is coming in Mageia 7 are available here.

The next step in the release will be the version freeze, where no new versions of packages are allowed without a valid exception, this will likely happen around April 23rd. Once this has happened, the release candidate builds will begin, targetting release around May 6th-12th. This will be followed by the release freeze, where no new package updates will be allowed unless to fix a release-critical issue. This will happen about a week after the release candidate release. Finally, the final release ISO’s can be built, targetting final release around the end of May depending on how long it takes to get a release quality ISO.

We hope that the release works well for you, but if there are issues please report them to our bugzilla so that we can get around to sorting them for release. If you want to get involved in ISO testing, package or any other aspect of Mageia, there is lots of information here.

A huge hand to all of the people involved with getting this release out of the door, and to all of the testers for giving us the feedback that we need to get Mageia 7 ready.



Mageia Blog (English) : New Mageia 7 Artwork

28 de Março de 2019, 15:26, por Planet Mageia (English) - 0sem comentários ainda

As many will have no doubt noticed, there has been an artwork contest running for Mageia 7, and then lots of voting in the community to choose the artwork! This has all finally concluded and we will start to integrate the new artwork into Mageia 7 to get it ready for release.

Before we get to the new artwork, firstly, a huge thank you to everyone that submitting artwork, and also those that took part in all of the voting, there was a great turnout and the results were really close, an indication of the excellence of the work that our community has put forward.

Firstly, the screensavers for Mageia 7 were, as always a tour around the world and showed some excellent photography talent. There seemed to be a distinct liking for rivers this time around.

Finally, the signature background for Mageia 7 was made by Fafoulous, and continues the trend of images that have an abstract piece on top of a simple dark blue background. We all hope that you share our thoughts that this will look excellent and highly professional in all of its uses in Mageia.

The other top images in the background contest will also be available in an extra package along with the backgrounds of previous releases.

Congratulations to all the winners and a huge hand to everyone that has taken part!

We are very proud to announce that Mageia 7 beta 2 is available for everyone to download!
This new beta comes with lots of bugfixes and updates, and it is one of our best beta releases.

Of course, there is still a lot of work to come before Mageia 7 is ready: a big Qt and Plasma update (5.15), a Gnome update (3.32 as soon it is released), and more checks on 32-bit hardware as well as the artwork for Mageia 7. For that, we will have a beta 3 set of images. We are all looking forward to implementing these changes and getting all of the rough edges polished out with all of the help from the community.

This release includes the Classical Installer as well as the Live Images, with the standard lineup of architectures and Desktop Environments – 32 and 64-bit Classical Installers; 64-bit Plasma, GNOME and Xfce Live DVD’s and a 32 bit Xfce Live DVD.

The ISO’s are available to download directly, and by torrent here.
Here are a few release highlights and package versions:

  • Kernel 4.20
  • Mesa 19.0 (rc)
  • rpm 4.14.2
  • Plasma 5.14.2
  • GNOME 3.30
  • Xfce 4.13.4
  • Firefox 64.0
  • Chromium 70
  • LibreOffice 6.2.0

A full list of included software is available in the idx file for Classical ISO’s and the lst file for the Live Images.

We have also updated most of the programming languages to their latest versions. AppStream metadata support has also been enhanced, giving a much richer experience with software selection in both GNOME and Plasma through their respective software search tools. There have also been improvements to laptops with Optimus and to the ARM port. More details are available here.

We hope that the release works well for you, but if there are issues please report them to our bugzilla so that we can get around to sorting them for release. If you want to get involved in ISO testing, packaging or any other aspect of Mageia, there is lots of information here.

A huge hand to all of the people involved with getting this release out of the door, and to all of the testers for giving us the feedback that we need to get Mageia 7 ready.



Liberdade na Fronteira : Call for Answers: Survey About Task Assignment

21 de Janeiro de 2019, 14:39, por Planet Mageia (English) - 0sem comentários ainda

Professor Igor Steinmacher, from Northern Arizona University, is a proeminent researcher on several social dynamics in open source communities, like support of newcomers, gender bias, open sourcing proprietary software, and more. Some of his papers can de found in his website.

Currently, Prof. Igor is inviting mentors from open source communities to answer a survey about task assignment in projects. See below the description of the survey and take some time to answer the questions – the knowledgement obtained here can be very interesting for all of us.

Hello,

My name is Igor Steinmacher, and I am a professor at Northern Arizona University.

Along with some other researchers we are currently studying the strategies that mentors use to assign tasks to newcomers to Free/Open Source projects.Your experience is very important to us given the limited number of people that mentor or guide newcomers in FOSS projects.

You are therefore, a perfect person to get feedback for our research.

We would really appreciate if you could spare about 5 minutes of your time to answer a brief survey about your experiences.
The survey is here: https://goo.gl/forms/qCzgoG3Uc4O0w9da2I would like to emphasize that, if shared, your insights will play a prominent role in creating a better understanding of the mentors’ strategies to assignment tasks for newcomers, serving as input for heuristics, and helping other mentors. Thank you very much in advance for your time, and please contact me if you have any question.

Regards,

Igor Steinmacher
