Mageia 6 Has Been Running Months Behind Schedule, But It's Still Coming
Written by Michael Larabel in Operating Systems on 20 February 2017 at 09:43 AM EST. 5 Comments
Samuel Verschelde of the Mandrake/Mandriva-forked Mageia Linux distribution has put out a blog post concerning the state of Mageia 6.

The last Mageia 6 test release was in June of last year and their next Mageia 6 "stabilization snapshot" has been repeatedly delayed for months.

This next test release of Mageia 6 isn't ready to ship yet, delayed most recently by a nasty partitioning bug. They are hoping to get Mageia 6 Stabilization Snapshot 2 shipped soon. Once that happens, they are going to focus on their remaining blocker bugs to then be able to finally ship Mageia 6 officially.

With Mageia 7 they hope that release won't take as long and will focus on improving critical parts of the stack.
