No. It's not available yet and I can not say when. I started this thread to post details of the next Preview when it is available.Next post will include:1)Changelog - Description of changes since PV42)Download sources3)Test notes - Specific items that need to be checked. Tests may be either regression tests or tests for new features. I will also include a template for reporting test results.This may hold up testing by a day or two after release but hopefully we can avoid some of the problems that we had in testing PV4.

The download would never be in vain.  Just another test copy.  Practice downloading if nothing else.  :D

Practice? :o What is there to practice? It's just a simple click and a hour later or less - bam, it's done!!  :o Oh yeah, I nearly forgot. :o I need the practice to keep up that good karma charm so the doors of the server will let me in the next time to download the next edition. :D  What was I thinking? :D  :o

Acceptable use?  Does that mean anything Linux is acceptable?    I can't think of any other explanation.  I pay for a 1.5 connection.   That means Linux downloads!  :D  I'm ready for PCLinuxOS Preview 5.

Careful now.... I don't think they would take too kindly to a good number of things. Hostile take-overs being one of them.  :o But, hey, go for it.  :devil:Edit: But we're deviating off topic...  :D

Well as Bruno deleted the whole topic I'll repost.  Bruno you know you can EDIT your posts....no need to nuke the whole topic.  :D I'm a great Mandrake fan and I don't normally mess with Betas but this may have to be downloaded.  If I can ever get Lindows to download with out timming out I'll try it next.

Nathan:There were two topics with the same title and the same subject . . . and because my announcement was premature ( it just was not there yet ) . . . I thought it better to simply delete the topic . . to avoid confusion :)Owyn:nluug is at 699534 KB now . . . a lot more then 154 MB . . . . looks better to me :D:lol: Bruno

Nathan - You can not delete a post when it is the first one in a thread.  We can go in and edit all sorts of posts as moderators but one quirk of the forum is that you can not delete the first post of the thread which is what Bruno obviously wanted to do.  On the other hand, it makes very good sense to have it all in this thread as it was first intended. ;)Once again Bruno and I cross posted!  What a day! :D

Barry you might as well relax.  I have been home five minutes and I am getting it at 170.5 KB/s.  I should be done by the time you get home so there should be space available. :DOwyn, Thanks for providing the links and updated status.  ;)Julia :)
