The openSUSE 13.2 RC1 milestone is riding on GNOME 3.14, Firefox 32 is the default web-browser, minor updates to the KDE stack, a new version of Plymouth splash boot software, and various other changes. Btrfs is used for the root file-system by default while the default partitioning scheme proposes a separate XFS-based /home setup.
