The first Alpha of SimplyMEPIS 11.0 has been released and uploaded to the MEPIS master site. If you are an MEPIS subscriber you can download the file immediately. The global ISO mirrors should make the files available to the general public within 24 hours.
According to MEPIS site:
At this time, 11.0 is closely aligned with Debian Squeeze but with a 2.6.36 kernel. This release provides a KDE 4.4.5 desktop.
The names of the ISOs are: SimplyMEPIS-CD_10.9.70_32.iso and SimplyMEPIS-CD_10.9.70_64.iso Although they are called "CD" ISOs, they are about 800 MB in size and will fit on DVD or USB media.
