The development team wish beta-testers to focus on the following applications:

  • GNOME2, KDE3, OpenOffice: These stellar applications have undergone many improvements, they deserve a new evaluation.

  • Dynamic Desktop: When plugging-in a peripheral device, Dynamic Desktop enables the automatic display of a shorcut easing the launch of an associated application in KDE or GNOME. Dynamic Desktop is now functional for USB storage. Please give it a try.

  • Drakconf: We would like to obtain your feedback on the new ergonomics and look.
