Noteworthy Mandriva Cooker changes

Filed under
MDV

It’s a long time ago I posted something on my blog, so this is a good moment to break the silence with a Cooker update:

* GCC 4.4: better code generation and many improvements for developers, such as OpenMP 3 support and support for the upcoming C++0x ISO standard. This new version also improves code optimization thanks to the Graphite framework. Glibc was also updated to the latest version 2.10.

* Xen kernel 2.6.27: Mandriva now includes a kernel for running on a Xen Dom0 based on the 2.6.27 kernel instead of the outdated 2.6.18 kernel.

* The standard Mandriva kernel is now at the latest 2.6.30.

* GNOME is now at version 2.27.2

Those who perhaps found themselves out of a job, or facing unprecedented levels of competition for limited employment opportunities after education, have created their own jobs and companies, bringing new found energy and increased competitiveness into the enterprise sector.
