It's been over a month since the release of openSUSE 11.4 M2
, but the third development milestone is now available after the developers fixed a show-stopping bug with Mesa's Software Rasterizer (it's sad though they still aren't using LLVMpipe
as a replacement instead). The openSUSE 11.4 M3 release brings a number of package updates and other improvements to this next Linux operating system release due out in March of 2011.
Some of the openSUSE 11.4 Milestone 3 package updates include GNOME 2.32, Banshee Media Player 1.8, KDE 4.5.3, LibreOffice 3.2.99, Mono 2.8, and Wireshark 1.4. The 11.4 M3 release is based upon the Linux 2.6.36 kernel
, but the Linux 2.6.37 kernel
may still go in prior to the release in March. SysVInit is the current default for openSUSE 11.4, but SystemD is also available for easy testing.
Details on openSUSE 11.4 Milestone 3 are available from news.opensuse.org
. The fourth development milestone is expected to be reached by month's end.
