-===== PLD 2.0 RC1 ===== +===== Current status ​=====
-On March 23rd PLD Linux Distribution team has announced release of PLD Linux 2.0 RC1 isos. [[ftp://​​2.0/​|Ftp]] resources contain 11 CDs for each architecture (i386, i586, i686, athlon, amd64 and ppc), miniiso (for i386, i586, i686 and athlon), DVD (for i686, amd64, ppc) and 14 CDs or 2 DVDs of source rpm packages. ​+
-Known bugs+On April 1st 2007 PLD/Linux 2.0 has been marked as stable. CD and DVD images are available on our [[ftp://​​iso/​2.0/​|FTP]] for download. MINI CDs are available for i386, i586, i686 and athlon (for amd64 and ppc use RescueCD instead). Full CD images are available for i386 (11 CDs), i586 (13 CDs), i686 (13 CDs), athlon (12 CDs), amd64 (10 CDs) and ppc (11 CDs). DVD images are available for i686, amd64 and ppc (2 DVDs for each architecture). There are also 14 CD and 2 DVD images with SRPMS. For installations with pre-defined package sets only first CD is required. ​
 +PLD 2.0 (Ac) stable release features: ​
-  * PPC isos are not bootable (will be fixed in next release) ​ 
-  * installation from i686 DVD iso fails on some systems (installer still have some serious problems, most of them should be fixed in RC2)  
-  * SMP version of 2.6 kernel hangs on non Intel main boards (new, completly reworked kernel packages are almost ready) ​ 
 +  * kernel ​
 +  * kernel with built-in virtualization support (Linux VServer) ​
 +  * glibc 2.3.6 
 +  * gcc 3.3.6 
 +  * KDE 3.5.6 
 +  * Gnome 2.14 
 +  * XFCE 4.4.0 
 +  * Open''''​ 2.1.0 (available on i386, i586, i686, athlon, ppc and sparc architectures) ​
 +  * MySQL 5.0.37 ​
 +  * PostgreSQL 8.2.3 
 +  * Perl 5.8.8 
 +  * Python 2.4.4 
-===== Roadmap ===== +Newer versions ​of some programs are available in updates
-Due to many changes/​problems/​delays there will be no more RCs. Next version will be stable version. It didn't make it before October because Someone(TM) was updating only x86/​amd64/​ppc part of kernel.spec ignoring sparc and alpha. Now kernel packages are ready and only following things are blocking Ac release: ​+
 +===== Updates stopped =====
-  * installer doesn'​t fit on floppies anymore (I'm working on solution. Nousing bz2, lzma, etc. would not help here, root fs is simply too big)  +On 13th March 2021the [[start#​th_march_2021pldlinux_ac_builders_stopped|builders ​have been stopped]], so this distro line will not receive any more updates.
-  * there are still broken dependencies in main tree, these must be fixed for all architectures  +
-  * TODO list for [[:​AcInfo:​BuilderTODO|AC-builders]] ​ +
-I really wanted to generate ISOs before end of 2006but that would mean Ac being outdated on its release date (and I don't want that to happen). If solving all of the problems listed above will go smoothly, then Ac ISOs should hit FTP on January, but since everything may happen I can't guarantee that date. However, February is **a must**+
-Update: due to repeating problems with amd64 builder Ac will be delayed again. Sorry folks and yes, I know that Ac looks more like NEST.  
 +===== Public GPG key =====
 +Below is public GPG key used for signing all PLD 2.0 (Ac) packages. It is also available on our [[ftp://​​dists/​2.0/​PLD-2.0-Ac-GPG-key.asc|FTP]]. After storing somewhere in your filesystem, you have to import it to RPM keyring: ​
 +<​file>#​ rpm --import PLD-2.0-Ac-GPG-key.asc
 +<​file>​-----BEGIN PGP PUBLIC KEY BLOCK-----
