The Release Candidate (RC) is the last milestone in the development cycle of any GNU/Linux distribution, and it usually contains mostly bug fixes and update packages. But what’s more exciting is the fact that OpenMandriva Lx 4.1 RC is shipping with the recently released Linux 5.5 kernel series. In addition to the Linux kernel bump, the Release Candidate also comes with the latest KDE Plasma 5.17.5 desktop environment, KDE Frameworks 5.66.0 and KDE Applications 19.12.1 open-source software suites, Qt 5.14.0 applications framework, Krita 4.2.8 digital painting software, and LLVM/clang 9.0.1 compiler.
