Novell sent over a gold master copy of openSUSE 11.2 earlier this week, which we have been playing around with, and overall this appears to be a nice openSUSE release. Additional details on openSUSE 11.2 is available from the marketing team's announcement and at openSUSE News. This release is available in 32-bit and 64-bit versions as a DVD or as LiveCD spins for both GNOME and KDE, which all can be downloaded at openSUSE.org.
