Claire Revillet has announced the availability of the delayed second beta build of Mageia 5, with further delays leading to the final release: "After several delays the beta 2 of Mageia 5 is finally out. But it seems that, yet again, we need to postpone the Mageia 5 release. Due to various difficulties with EFI boot, GRUB 2 and a few other things, we need a little more time. Only a few members of our QA team have EFI-based machines, so if you do have such equipment please test beta 2 and report your experience. Our QA, packagers and ISO teams are working around the clock to bring us all a stable and secure release, but they still need to work out a few kinks. Therefore, we are planning one more beta release before the release candidate."
