      Users of openmamba milestone2 will get an upgrade to the fourth pre-release

      with the following main new features:

      – “longterm” kernel

      – KDE desktop environment 4.5.5

      – network connections management is now based on NetworkManager in order to

      provide an integrated and simple solution for ethernet, wireless, mobile

      broadband, ADSL (PPPoE) and more

      – 400+ software components updated

      – initial support for the “light” LXDE desktop environment, suitable for

      computers with limited CPU and memory resources


      – upon upgrade completion the system must be rebooted

      – network settings like password for Wireless connection, static IP and DNS

      and any other custom settings have to be reconfigured with the new interface

      – in order to decrease the risk of an upgrade failure due to the new kernel it

      is now possible to start the system using the previous kernel (2.6.33),

      available as a choice in the boot menu

      – in order to use the LXDE environment the “lxde” package must be installed,

      then logout from KDE and login again after selecting “lxde” session type

      Within a few days live installation media will be available and the official

      release will be published.

      Wishing you a pleasant upgrade,
