Is Linux-Mandrake 7.2 officially released or not? If you look
you'll find Linux-Mandrake 7.2 available for download (as first
reported on Linuxnewbie).
However, the main
Linux-Mandrake Web site still reports that version 7.1 is still
the most current. So what gives?
Here's the situation: we've been told that the "official"
release has been delayed by a week, but that 7.2 was quietly being
uploaded to all the mirror download sites (like this one). And
indeed, if you check out the download sites, you'll find that
Linux-Mandrake 7.2 is available for download. So rip away!
