Updating opensuse 11
Pick your desktop, configure your system and enjoy the platform of choice for Linux developers, administrators and software vendors.
open SUSE believes the best results come from people collaborating and having fun.
New and experienced Linux users get the most usable Linux distribution and stabilized operating system with open SUSE’s regular release.
Receive updates and harden your OS with open SUSE’s latest major distribution.
As a six-month release schedule is not something we consider feasible to maintain high-quality standards, we are proposing a fixed eight-month schedule.
We have spent a considerable amount of time asking if we should go with a September release for 11.2 and then adopt an eight-month release schedule, or begin with an eight-month release schedule right away.
(This is a weak advantage since the summer release of Intel’s graphic chips didn’t work out with a December release either.) – We simply have more time for everything.
The features we have in mind for 11.2 center around these top features: * Newer and better software, including: – KDE 4.3 – GNOME 2.28, – Linux kernel 2.6.30 or higher * Ext4 – possibly even as the default filesystem.
This means that the last chance to change _anything_ but really urgent fixes would be the check-in deadline of RC1, which would be released in week 41 in 2009.
Tumbleweed appeals to Power Users, Software Developers and open SUSE Contributors.
If you require the latest software stacks and Integrated Development Environment or need a stable platform closest to bleeding edge Linux, Tumbleweed is the best choice for you.
If missing these releases is a problem, let’s discuss this _now_.
Of course, this doesn’t mean we can’t publish supported or unsupported addons or updated live CDs with the respective desktops or similar software: We just need people willing to do it. Releasing 11.2 in November has some advantages over releasing in September: – We don’t rely on contributions during the summer months that much. – We are more likely to have working drivers for hardware released in early summer is higher.
