The first Mandriva 2007 release candidate (codename Mona) is out. The final version is due soon. 2007’s new features include Gnome 2.16 with New ‘Ia Ora’ Mandriva Theme, parallel initscript (for faster boot), 3D desktop (with both AIGLX and Xgl to support more graphic cards). Installable Live-CDs including Gnome or KDE are available in different languages, and because it is a live-cd it is possible to try it without installing. Don’t forget to report bugs if you find them, in order to get a solid final release.
