    Default openSUSE 11.3 Released

    Phoronix: openSUSE 11.3 Released

    As expected, openSUSE 11.3 has been released this morning. openSUSE 11.3 is the latest Linux distribution update from Novell and the openSUSE Project. This release introduces a number of new features, including SpiderOak file sync integration, improved file indexing, support for the Btrfs file-system, graphics driver updates, and many package updates. Available for openSUSE 11.3 is KDE SC 4.4.4 and GNOME 2.30.1, but a preview snapshot of GNOME 3.0 complete with the GNOME Shell is also available...

    Have been using it since RC1 and have had no issues whatsoever
    Actually I'm also using KDE 4.5 RC and that's also very stable.

    Very good job done !!

    I'll have to try openSUSE again and see how well it compares to recently released Mandriva Linux 2010 Spring.

    Under the hood:

    hal is not used in the base system and the GNOME desktop anymore. The KDE desktop still requires hal
    Hmm, isn't hal deprecated? So why does KDE still require HAL? This doesn't sound good. Like KDE is more focused on this plasmid bling-bling than getting their core sorted out.

    Not sure if that still applies to the upcoming KDE 4.5, but at the time KDE 4.4 was released (which openSUSE uses), udev etc. didn't support all the features of hal yet.

    It's been eight months since the release of openSUSE 11.2 while the successor to OpenSUSE 11.3, which will be openSUSE 11.4, is due for release in March of 2011.
    Nope, next version is 12.0.

    November 2009: "Fichte" 11.2
    July 2010: "Rousseau" 11.3
    March 2011: "Voltaire" 12.0
    November 2011: "Lessing" 12.1
