Mitch aka dontpanic has done a fantastic job in putting together the 5.1 beta 1 cd. I fired this up today and it worked great. I had a couple hickups with an emerge -upDN world, but easily solvable with two USE flags and selecting the proper profile. Another issue got reported with the x86 version, but all minor.
We didn’t get the 5.0 core-cd out and the work on 5.1 rolled in very quickly, so we figured it would be best to wait for the 5.1 mainline to settle down than build a core-cd. It’s a win win situation even tho people had to wait a bit longer.
Testing team is still waiting for beta 2 of the 5.1 mini-dvds. We decided to also update it some more, so Fabio had to rebuild the isos. It will have the latest KDE 4.3.3 and Gnome 2.28 desktop environments. It will have the latest kernel fixes also, like the cups thing. Remember if you are doing your equo world, you should of seen an install for the kernel so you are also getting the latest stuff and fixes. Woot!
We appreciate everyone’s patience in our releases.
I don’t know about your part of the world, but it’s summer time here in the midwest of the USA and it’s been tough to keep at it with everything. One wants to be out at the lake, getting yard work done, have bon fires and all that other fun stuff. Progress may be hindered by any of the said events.
Mitch has kicked out RC2 to the testers and it’s getting close, a few more tweaks, twists and a little bit of hammering and I feel confident that RC3 will turn into the final version. I got my fingers crossed anyway.
I don’t know if everyone got the news of Branch 5 stuff yet. Joost did make a blog post about it. Do be aware that no support is offered to Branch 5 yet and all bugs submitted are rejected. Fabio is working on the migration tools from branch 4 to branch 5. We will be announcing when Branch 5 will be fully supported. I myself have been in Branch 5 for some time now and it’s been a good experience. Joost has been working hard on Branch 5 between his summer parties.
We’ve cleaned out the testers list of inactive people and this makes room for people that can be active and have good knowledge of Sabayon Linux to jump on board to be apart of the SL 5 experience. You can find more information on this on the forum.
We are still looking for translators, we are really struggling to find people to help with this project. If you are interested in translating, please get a hold of daniel.halens at sabayonlinux dot org and he can answer your questions and get you started. To continue world domination plans, we need help from all the great people out there.
I’ve started seeing people asking on forum and irc about SL 5 release date. I stress that the roadmap is only a guideline. Dates can and will change without notice. If the date comes and goes and there is no updated roadmap, follow this blog for updates. Patience from the community will be much appreciated and thanks to everyone that does.
I think that is about it for now. Hang in there everyone!
