4) install the new mageia-release packages from cauldron :
   urpmi http://distrib-coffee.ipsl.jussieu.fr/pub/linux/Mageia/distrib/cauldron/i586/media/core/release/mageia-release-common-2-0.1.mga2.i586.rpm http://distrib-coffee.ipsl.jussieu.fr/pub/linux/Mageia/distrib/cauldron/i586/media/core/release/mageia-release-Default-2-0.1.mga2.i586.rpm

This is for people who want to stay on cauldron after the release.

For people who want to switch to the stable release, you need to stop
updating now, and wait for the release to be available on mirrors, to
add the release 1 sources.
