openSUSE Announces Second 11.4 Development Milestone With New Kernel, OpenOffice, Mesa

Today, Thursday October 7, the openSUSE project announces Milestone 2 of openSUSE 11.4.  Milestone 2 (M2) is the second of six periodic development snapshots of openSUSE 11.4 and includes updates to major components across the breadth of the distribution.

Autumn's seeds; Spring's release

Starting at the bottom of the stack, Linux Kernel 2.6.36rc4 made it into M2. This is accompanied by the OpenGL implementation Mesa 7.9, which provides a new shader compiler and support for newer Radeon chips. The cronie crontab manager replaces the Vixie cron used until now and adds the flexible anacron, which allows cronjobs to happen even if the machine was powered down at the scheduled time. D-Bus 1.4 adds support for systemd and fixes the threading issues which gave KDE 4.5 problems.
