The OpenMandriva Association has announced the availability of OpenMandriva Lx 4.1 BETA for testing. This BETA release will showcase all the features planned for the final release. However, it will require some more regression and fine-tuning to provide a smoother experience to the end-user.

- Linux Kernel 5.4.7

- OpenMandriva clang compiled kernel, named kernel-release-clang. Users can install the same version of kernel-release and kernel-release-clang for comparison. Clang is the default compiler in OpenMandriva, but only recently the kernel was made compatible with it. For now, this is experimental
