Mandrake Linux 9.0 Beta 3 now available

The third Beta of the upcoming Mandrake Linux 9.0 is now available. Thanks to many helpful suggestions and reports, Beta 3 contains numerous corrections and improvements to the DrakX installer and assorted software.
The third Beta also introduces new features, including:
  • The first release of 'drakcronat'. Drakcronat is a utility for configuring 'at' and 'cron' jobs.

  • WebDAV file system support has been integrated into the kernel and in drakconf. WebDAV allows users to collaboratively edit and manage files on remote web servers.

  • koffice 1.2rc1, an office productivity suite from KDE, is now available in a new fully-functional version.

  • i845 support for 2D in XFree86 appears with this third Beta.

There's still room for improvements and additional testing, so we would greatly appreciate everyone's participation.
