The beta release of the forthcoming openSUSE 12.3
Linux distribution is being pushed onto the Internet today.
The openSUSE 12.3 Beta is minor in nature compared to the earlier 12.3 development milestones that brought much churn. Coming in less than one month will be the first release candidate on 7 February.
Among the features for openSUSE 12.3 is the KDE 4.10 desktop, LXDE and Xfce desktop improvements, Mozilla Firefox 18 is servicing web-browsing needs, the Linux 3.7 kernel is present with many features, the LLVM 3.2 compiler is optionally available, GDB 7.5 can be used for debugging, and LibreOffice 3.6 for open-source office needs.
