The repos are now available on the primary mirrors and should be on other mirrors as soon as they sync. Official release will probably be later today (October 9th, Paris time).

Yup, I have the 64 bit Free dvd downloading as we speak (well, type!) from the Paris mirror. Got to say with much better speeds than 2008 Spring.

Very much looking forward to playing with what looks like a superb new toy!

Here's the clicky thing if you're having trouble locating it:

you can read all about it here,

don't forget to check the 2009.0 errata to see what's up.

KDE say's no new features till Jan 2009, all updates will be bug fixes for KDE4.1.2

And please use the Mandriva HCL, it will help all mandriva users.

Cheers, Glenn
