Mandriva Linux 2007 Beta 3 Tyr
The latest Mandriva Linux 2007 Beta, codenamed Tyr is out of the oven.

It’s time to embrace 3-dimensional Mandriva Linux. Tyr delivers a ONE CD with 3D Desktops enabled:

  • AIGLX and XGL support
  • Both FREE and proprietary drivers handled, for INTEL, Nvidia and ATI chipsets
  • Compiz window manager for some neat effects
  • Ready for KDE and GNOME desktops (”KDE 3.5.4 and GNOME 2.16 RC1″-inside)
  • Featuring the new Drak3D tool for easy management :)

ONE is a live-and-install CD. Just slide into your drive, boot on the CD, and enjoy the ride.

More news from the neat-user-experience-department: the new version of RPMDRAKE, our application management tool, is included. We revamped the User Interface and we want your feedback.

More and more:

  • DrakVPN, a tool for managing Virtual Private Networks, is also available.
  • Invictus Firewall : Mandriva Linux is certainly the first Linux distro to include a redundant firewall solution. Stay tuned during the next few days for more information on Invictus.
  • More applications went into the XDG menus.
  • WARNING: some ONE Cd’s (10 versions are available for BETA 3) include proprietary drivers. If you want a purely free Tyr, check out the info.

Ok, that’s enough teasing. Find more information in our development wikipaying particular attention to the known issues — then download Mandriva Linux Beta 3 Tyr and help us correct eventual bugs by filling reports in Bugzilla.
