While Red Hat is busy at work on Fedora 13 and Canonical is busy working on their Long-Term Support release of Ubuntu 10.04, Novell is working on openSUSE 11.3. This next upgrade to openSUSE is due out in mid-July, but the first milestone release is now available.

Milestone 1 of openSUSE 11.3 pulls in the latest GNOME 2.30 development packages and the release candidate of KDE 4.4 Software Compilation. The LXDE desktop environment has also been pulled into the openSUSE desktop as an alternative choice. In the openSUSE 11.3 branch, Firefox is now at version 3.6, Thunderbird is up to the 3.0 release, a beta of OpenOffice.org 3.2 is included, and various other packages have also been updated. openSUSE 11.3 Milestone 1 is running with the Linux 2.6.32 kernel right now, but the Linux 2.6.33 kernel (if not 2.6.34) should get pulled in prior to the July release.

The lengthy announcement along with download links for openSUSE 11.3 is available at news.openSUSE.org.
