The OpenMandriva team recently released a new version called OpenMandriva LX 3.00, but still a new version called OpenMandriva LX 3.01 introducing new software in the distribution as well as updates of the most important programs of the distribution.
But it is not the only thing. Changes have also been made such as the introduction of Wayland as a graphical server or the use of a new file format to improve the performance of certain computer hardware.
OpenMandriva LX 3.01 has the latest kernel, Kernel 4.9 which adds more hardware support and also fixes certain bugs that have been found in the kernel. In addition, the distribution has the latest version of KDE Plasma, XOrg and Wayland. The latter being the graphical server used by default.
Another change that has been included in OpenMandriva LX 3.01 is using the F2FS file format, a file format that is optimized for use on ssd disks, disks that are increasingly present in computers and that significantly accelerate the operation of our computer and Linux.

In addition, the distribution has a lightweight version for teams with few resources which is based on the LXQT desktop. What's more Qupzilla, the famous web browser, is integrated in this version as the default browser. The rest of the programs that came with other previous versions are still in this new version, in addition to thousands of programs that are in the official repositories and that we can install in this version.
OpenMandriva was born as a free project of the old Mandriva, one of the oldest distributions out there and that he continues with good progress after his Community has welcomed him. Although it seems that it only focuses on KDE users and QT libraries.
