2008-04-30 00:00:00.0 Gentoo Linux 2008.0 Beta 2 has been released    View
Gentoo Linux 2008.0 beta2 is here. Thanks to you, our community, for testing beta1 and filing many bugs. You can help make 2008.0 amazing! Test out this beta and report any functionality issues you encounter. Since this is still a beta, we're looking only for bugs in functionality, not bugs in appearance such as desktop backgrounds or other artwork. This should be the last beta and will be followed by the final 2008.0 release after further bug fixing.
2008-04-02 00:00:00.0 Gentoo Linux 2008.0 Beta 1 has been released    View
When we said 'soon,' even we didn't realize how soon it would be. 2008.0_beta1 is here. Your support and enthusiasm are greatly appreciated - thank you. You can help make 2008.0 amazing! Test out this beta and report any functionality issues you encounter. Since this is the first beta, we're looking only for bugs in functionality, not bugs in appearance such as desktop backgrounds or other artwork. We expect to release a second beta once your testing has helped us fix problems with this first beta. A migration to RPM was carefully considered again for this release, but in the end we decided to wait for the few remaining RPM-using distributions to migrate to the superior packaging format of ebuilds.
