I noticed a few people spotted the presence of BETA024 :) BETA024 was the latest built of Cassandra. It went Gold last night and became Cassandra Stable. If you've already downloaded BETA024 you don't need to download it again, it is essentially the same iso file as the stable release.

Thanks!
I found it earlier. Downloading now at turtle speed. :o

Clem, is Mint compressed on the disk? Another distro claims it has nearly 2 GB compressed on a cd.

Yes, it's compressed with squashfs to fit on a 700MB CD. It contains approximately 2.6GB of data (that also explains why it's so slow to run from the liveCD).

Wonderful! Thanks Clem, I did see the Beta024 but didn't download because I wanted to save bandwidth. Cassandra, here I come!

Kinne: For linuxmint.com it must be your browser or proxy cache. Ladislav (from Distrowatch) is sometimes very busy but it never takes long before distrowatch.com is up to date and we always send him an email after we release a new version of Linux Mint.

Congrats, clem.
I'm running Beta014, which is great, as I download Cassandra Final.
Long live Mint!

Cheers
Sorry, but that's the way it is.

I'm in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and am having absolutely no luck in downloading. My downloads either stop completely or slow to a crawl. Any suggestions as to what is a recommended time of the day for downloading? I tried torrent but it wasn't any better than http.

For those that are running beta 014, is there a way to upgrade to Cassandra final with updates?

aapiethaaap: are you sure? Can you confirm the MD5 of the iso you've downloaded from os-iso.de?

Glory Be! But, I'll wait awhile. Having cd drive issues and probably need a new one (or a new computer?). Or, just buy the cd when it's available.

I used the link blogger posted, no go for me.

I went to http://newelite.ath.cx/minty/?id=8 and chose Direct Link, which works better.

Sparkly new Mint person here ;)

Thanks to Clem and the team for letting Cassandra out of the cage, it looks really nice so far.

There's about 12 seeders now on the torrent, I recommend using bittorrent if you can, and leaving it going as long as you are able. That way everyone can get Cassandra in short order.
