Official Announce: ... is-out-now


On Distrowatch:
Distribution Release: OpenMandriva Lx 4.2

Cristina Sgubbi has announced the release of OpenMandriva Lx 4.2, an updated build of the project's desktop-oriented Linux distribution originally forked from the defunct Mandriva Linux. This is the project's first release supporting the Aarch64 architecture:

"The OpenMandriva team is pleased to announce the general availability of the latest stable version. Say hello to OpenMandriva Lx 4.2. OpenMandriva Lx is a unique and independent distribution, direct descendant of Mandriva Linux and the first Linux distribution using the LLVM toolchain by default since 2015. OpenMandriva Lx 4.2 is now even easier to use with improved OM Welcome, the brand-name tool which makes possible to install a range of well known applications with just one click. This release comes with the latest and brightest KDE products. This version also includes: LibreOffice suite 7.1.0, Krita 4.4.2, Digikam 7.2, SMPlayer 21.1.0, VLC, Falkon browser 3.1, SimpleScreenRecorder 0.4.3. The port to aarch64 (64-bit ARM processors) is completed; installable images are available for the PinebookPro, Raspberry Pi 4B and 3B+, Rock Pi 4A, 4B and 4C, Synquacer, Cubox Pulse and generic UEFI-compatible devices."
