Hi all,


The text between ----- is our Press Release for Mageia 2. It is missing
one link, to the blog post which won't go up until all isos are ready.

When we're ready to release, I'll send an email and it would be great
if you could then send out this release to any press in your country -
online, blogs, news sites and so on.



Press Release

We are pleased to announce the release of Mageia 2, a  100%
community-driven Linux distribution with user and contributors from
many countries. 

Mageia 2 has been released today (May 22nd) and is now available for
download from the Mageia website, www.mageia.org. 

The Mageia blog announcement says: "We're the Mageia community, and
we're very happy to announce the release of Mageia 2!  We've had a
great time building our community and our new release, and we hope you
enjoy using it as much as we enjoyed making it." 

Mageia has featured in the 10 Major Distributions list at Distrowatch
since soon after the release of Mageia  1 on June 1st 2011, and has
grown steadily in popularity since it's initial release.

and is currently standing at #3.
