Release Schedule for Bianca (Linux Mint 2.2)

Postby clem on Sun Jan 28, 2007 6:45 pm

Here's the release schedule for Bianca (Linux Mint 2.2):

- BETA release: 01/02/2007 (Thursday).
- FINAL release: 20/02/2007 (Tuesday).

We encourage people who want to help to download and install the BETA as soon as it is released. With your feedback and the 20 days gap between the two releases we have an opportunity to find issues and bugs and to tackle them the best we can to make the final release of Bianca one of the best distributions there is.

Thank you very much,
Clem.
PS: It will be possible to upgrade from Bea and Bianca BETA to Bianca FINAL. The release notes for the final release will explain how to do so.

I have a spare testing partition ready and waiting for it. My Bea install isn't going to go anywhere for a while though since I have everything setup to do all my multimedia encoding and analog to digital transfers.

Keep up the good work!

Fragadelic: That's perfect! You'll be able to test the beta on the free partition and when the stable gets released you'll just upgrade Bea to Bianca final without any reinstallation.

Clem - will there be a way of upgrading the home system from the CD?

The reason I ask is that I have a limit of bandwidth I can use per month and I have all of my home desktop PC's running Mint right now(Mine, Wife's, and the kids'). I'd hate to have to do a system update 3 times.

Maybe I'll just have to make a home repo of the files but updating from the cd would be great.

Well.. the quick answer is no I'm afraid..
However, I could compress the repository and make that archive available with instructions on how to download it and use it as a local repository.

Ok, we'll do that so. Don't forget to remind me when the final release comes out.

I have a spare partition for the beta Clem but we need a better way of reporting problems (unless messages here are best for you) how about something like this http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=pYKaaQjbe6zGeVM7v8yaxHA
