This forums thread is for discussion of the www.gentoo.org posting, "2008.0 beta still in progress." Post your comments and suggestions here.
Quote:
The 2008.0 beta is roughly a month behind the original tentative schedule. A number of factors contributed to this, including the migration to new release processes, the usual delays that affect most open-source projects, and the death of a close relative of our developers Chris Gianelloni and Chrissy Fullam.

Work on the first beta is still underway, and we expect to release it soon.

Excuse me, but I don't understand your question. Could you rephrase it please.

I really wonder, where you got that from as there is no official 2008 release yet, the latest is 2007.0. Anyway, expect at least one more month for the final release.

The only thing what it is needed for is:

  • PR (telling news site Gentoo is still alive)
  • new installations with newer packages and without expat breakage.


For existing users changes are minimal.

I have sata odd, and I've had quite trouble installing gentoo.. (no rootfs or something like that)

With 2008.0, I hope not to confront with those problems.

New Hardware? :roll:

There's plenty of chipsets and other hardware that has come out and isn't supported by gentoo's CDs. It's just pathetic when a distro has to tell its users to go find somebody elses LiveCD to install from.

There are no beta versions available yet...I am sure it will be announced on the front page or on planet.gentoo.org

That's filed under new installations, if you grant me the picture. But you are right....new hardware on new installations.

If no Reiser4, then for sure ext4!

"what I do download Release gentoo 2008 ? (no beta)"

The guy named electro means "where to download the non-beta version of gentoo 2008 from". Answer is, it's not out yet. Neither is the beta out.

ext4 is under heavy development, too.

I don't see why anyone should discriminate between ext4 and Reiser4. I'm running Reiser4 here on all my systems and haven't found any corruption or problems, even with gzip1 compression.
