  1. I’ve been waiting for Knoppix 5.2 to appear since April, but can’t find it anywhere. Am I looking in the wrong places?

  2. No, you’re not looking in the wrong places, the public version hasn’t been released yet. The “unofficial” release announced above is probably available on, though I can’t get the site to load for me to check.
