A month ago we reported that two versions of Mandriva were coming soon
after a number of its developers had left the project to form the Mageia Linux distribution
after Mandriva's parent company was facing some financial hardship and its future was questionable during this period. The two versions of Mandriva being worked on were Mandriva 2010.02 and Mandriva 2011, with the former having been released today.
Mandriva 2010.2 is an incremental, stable update over what was delivered this spring with Mandriva 2010.1. There are 2,522 RPM packages that were officially updated and supported since the 2010.1 release.
The release announcement can be read on the Mandriva Blog
. Meanwhile its developers will now focus upon putting out a major release annually rather than twice a year as they had been doing. The Mandriva 2011 release is scheduled to take place on 30 May.
