It looks like yesterday, a few hours after we made the announcement that SuSE v10.1 did not make its BETA release of last Thursday, OpenSuse v10.1 BETA 4 was finally released. However, in that announcement, there were warnings as BETA 4 is fairly unreliable. Here is a list of the most annoying bugs in this release, while the release announcement can be found here. Also, if you take a close look at the road-map you will see they have now added a sixth BETA candidate, which will be released on March 2. After these BETA releases, there is still no word when the release candidate will come down the road. Certainly things aren't looking good right now for Novell's SuSE v10.1.

Onto some less gloomy news, Ubuntu Dapper Drake v6.04 Flight 4 was released early this morning. Among many other improvements, there is now an Espresso LiveCD installer as well as GNOME v2.14 BETA 2. In addition, they have included Novell's Xgl and Compiz. Meeting up with this Ubuntu release is Kubuntu as well as Edubuntu.

Out on the horizon for this week is Fedora Core 5 Test 3.
