Right on schedule, openSUSE 11.3 Milestone 4 has been released. This fourth test release brings many changes, among which that take place "under the hood" is switching over to the Upstart init daemon, an upgrade to NetworkManager 0.8 for wired/wireless/broadband network management, and other packages upgraded include OpenOffice.org, Mono, CUPS, Python, and Samba, among others.

openSUSE 11.3 has also begun better integrating the Moblin user-interface, but it's expected that this netbook-focused UI will be more properly integrated with openSUSE 11.3 Milestone 5. Another modification to openSUSE 11.3 is the LiveCDs having the VirtualBox guest tools installed by default, which provide a better "out of the box" experience when running openSUSE as a virtualized OS with Oracle's VirtualBox platform.

On the desktop side, the Milestone 4 release has the release candidate of GNOME 2.30 and KDE 4.4.1.

The openSUSE 11.3 Milestone 4 release announcement with the various download links can be found at news.openSUSE.org.

The fifth milestone release (of seven, then followed by two release candidates) is scheduled to be available in early April. The final release of openSUSE 11.3 is set to arrive on the 15th of July.
