Here are a few short items to emerge in last few days. The Mageia squad released their release candidate. Patrick Volkerding has changed his mind about some of those version numbers for 14.1. And the fedora release team is to announce the first peek at 19 tomorrow.
Mageia 3 Release Candidate
Anne Nicolas announced Mageia 3 RC April 21 in classic installer media. The team still struggles with live images, but it looks like they're closing in on that GRUB 2 enigma. GRUB 2 can now be installed during the summary step of installation. She said, "Integration in drakboot is only partial, if you want a better GUI conf, you could use grub-customizer." UEFI support was added in Beta 4, but Secure Boot is still not supported.
