Mandriva launches special edition Linux

Mandriva, the company formerly known as Mandrakesoft, has released the first version of its Linux distribution to use its new company name and product branding. Mandriva Linux Limited Edition 2005 is an interim release as Paris, France-based Mandriva moves to a new yearly release schedule.

It is the last to be based on the Mandrakelinux code development tree before the company integrates technology from Brazilian Linux vendor Conectiva, which it acquired in February.

As an interim release, Mandriva Linux Limited Edition 2005 replaces the previously scheduled Mandrakelinux 10.2 but is not backed by the company’s support and services. However, it does introduce new versions of a number of key open source technologies such as Linux kernel, KDE 3.3.2, Gnome 2.8.3, and Firefox 1.0.2.

The new version has also been designed specifically to offer support for x86-64 technologies, enabling the ability to run and develop 32- and 64-bit applications. The integration of Conectiva technology will come with Mandriva Linux 2006, which is scheduled for release later this year.
