[ Thanks to Kadjo N'Doua for this infomation. ]

The test period for Mandriva Linux 2006 has now officially begun with the first beta available.

If you already have a Mandriva system installed you can simply perform an update with urpmi: the file trees for i586 processors or 64 bit x86_64 compatible processors are on the /devel/2006.0/ subdirectory of the mirrors. You will also find ISO images for 3 CDs, also available for both architectures. Mini ISO files contain the minimum needed to perform an installation and allow to add extra package sources from FTP mirrors during the installation.

Not all planned new features are included in this first beta version. The remaining features will appear in future beta versions.

Download locations are displayed here, and, as always, is ready to host your bug reports.
