It's been two years since the last stable OpenMandriva Lx release and more than one year since Lx 3 Alpha was released but coming out today is finally the second beta of this Mandriva-derived Linux distribution.

OpenMandriva Lx 3.0 Beta 2 features improved stability and performance, adds F2FS Flash-Friendly File-System support for SSDs, switches over to Mesa 12.0-RC4 and X.Org Server 1.18.3, and under the hood is relying upon systemd 230 and the Linux 4.6 kernel. OpenMandriva Lx 3.0 Beta 2 uses the KDE Plasma 5 desktop by default but also ships LXQt as another option.

More details on OpenMandriva Lx 3.0 Beta 2 can be found via the OM blog. Additional information on all of the changes for this big update to OpenMandriva can be found via the tentative release notes.
