"Mandriva is proud to announce the release of Mandriva Linux
2009 Spring Alpha 2, marking the first public pre-release of the
upcoming Mandriva Linux 2009. This alpha introduces several
significant changes, most obviously the inclusion of KDE 4--4.1
beta 2, specifically--as the default version of KDE, and the latest
development version of GNOME, 2.23.4. The kernel has also been
updated to release 2.6.26rc7. We emphasize that the KDE change is a
major one that is not yet entirely completed and likely to cause
many bugs. As always--but more importantly than ever--we remind you
not to use pre-releases in any critical situation; install them
only on a test system or partition, or in a virtual machine.
Additionally, we strongly discourage using this pre-release to
upgrade from any earlier release of Mandriva Linux, as the
transition process from KDE 3 to KDE 4 is not yet fully implemented
and you are likely to end up with an unusable system..."
