[CLOSED] Mageia 8 Release

Postby pnbalaji » Sep 18th, '20, 04:36

Hi,

Is Megeia 8 going to be released tomorrow as mentioned in the wiki? I was using Manjaro for a while, but I have been experiencing issues with it with the recent updates and I am planning to switch to Mageia 8.

Thanks,
Balaji.

Hi,
probably not, as beta 2 hasn't even left QA yet nor any RC is in sight.

So, can I install Mageia 7.1 now and then upgrade to 8 whenever it is ready? I see that an option in the Mageia 8 release notes, but wanted to confirm before I wipe my hard drive and install Mageia.
