Mageia 3 available

With 2 months of delay, Mageia 3 sees the light, which does not incorporate important news but does include package updates, performance improvements and resource optimization. Mageia is consolidated as one of the best distributions that KDE uses by default.

To see a full list of packages updated since Mageia 2, I recommend taking a look at the Mageia Apps Database:
