As expected, openSUSE 11.3 has been released this morning. openSUSE 11.3 is the latest Linux distribution update from Novell and the openSUSE Project. This release introduces a number of new features, including SpiderOak file sync integration, improved file indexing, support for the Btrfs file-system, graphics driver updates, and many package updates. Available for openSUSE 11.3 is KDE SC 4.4.4 and GNOME 2.30.1, but a preview snapshot of GNOME 3.0 complete with the GNOME Shell is also available.

The openSUSE 11.3 release also bids farewell to the RadeonHD driver, which had been a project of several Novell/openSUSE developers for the past few years but now they have conceded to using the xf86-video-ati driver with the Radeon DRM/KMS driver. Some of the core packages making up openSUSE 11.3 is GCC 4.5.0, the Linux 2.6.34 kernel, X.Org Server 1.8, GRUB 0.97, and OpenOffice.org 3.2.1.

It's been eight months since the release of openSUSE 11.2 while the successor to OpenSUSE 11.3, which will be openSUSE 11.4, is due for release in March of 2011. The openSUSE 11.3 release announcement can be found at openSUSE.org.
