"Surprise! Our developers have decided to skip yet another weekend, and managed to put out a fourth beta of the upcoming Mandrake Linux 8.2 while nobody from the management was looking... Beta3 already worked quite nicely on most of the hardware, and this one should be even better: the annoying bug which prevented changing of CDs during installation has been squished, together with a myriad of smaller, but still annoying bugs.

As this beta has been finished VERY early this morning, everyone who knows exactly what has been done is "unreachable" at the moment. On the other hand, I've been running the "cooker" with daily updates during the last few days, and what I saw is an "almost ready to go" distribution. Try it yourself: The list of the mirrors holding the ISO images of the fourth beta is available on the Mandrake Linux site."
