The first alpha of SimplyMepis 11.0 has been released. Yesterday Warren Woodford teased his Twitter followers images might be coming today and, sure enough, 32- and 64-bit ISOs were uploaded to Mepis servers a few hours ago. While details are sketchy, this alpha is based on the unfinished Debian Squeeze, with Linux kernel 2.6.36, and featuring KDE 4.
True to its conservative nature, this is the first SimplyMepis to offer KDE 4. Warren was probably the last KDE 3 holdout, waiting for KDE 4 to stablize. KDE 4.4.5 is the version currently being shipped, still several KDE releases behind.
