I’ll go straight to what most people want to know: The KDE CE Edition will come as a 2nd BETA in the days to come. Although it’s extremely stable a few tiny issues need to be addressed prior to the release and as many changes were made since the first BETA release it looks wiser to give this release a week of community testing. I’ve already installed it on my laptop and I can tell all the KDE fans among us, this is definitely among the best KDE desktops I’ve ever got to see. If you liked Cassandra KDE CE, you’ll absolutely love this one.
mintBackup was released in Romeo and is currently being tested. Translations are also being made for the tool which already supports 5 languages.
The Fluxbox CE Edition, made in Romania by Shane, is ready to be released as a BETA.
The Debian-based ISO experimentation is finished and ready to be released as an ALPHA (technology preview).
The Fedora-based ISO experimentation is likely to be postponed for another 6 months as focus is moving towards the upcoming Linux Mint 5 release, translation of all the mint tools, the User Guide, and the development of an alternative to Giver (easy file-sharing across the network without any shares).
The 64bit ISO experimentation won’t start during this release cycle.
