The first developmental milestone release of the forthcoming openSUSE 12.3 was made publicly available today.
Among the changes for openSUSE 12.3 is finishing off the /usr
migration, improving jouranl data and queries, improvements to systemd unit files, /mount
points under /run/user
, and suspend/hibernation/laptop-lid-switch now being handled by systemd with the version 195 release that is used by openSUSE 12.3 Milestone 1.
With openSUSE 12.3, SuSEconfig is being phased out and there's discussions happening about the future of openSUSE with Dracut and PackageKit.
Last but not least, there's many package updates like GCC 4.7.2, Mesa 9.0, new X.Org graphics drivers, the Linux 3.6.3 kernel, Python 3.3, and much more.
