How are you spending your Thursday evening? Me, I‚Äôll be slapping the openSUSE 11.2 final release candidate on my work machines and testing like crazy.
The last release candidate hit the mirrors on schedule today, with lots of goodies for Linux enthusiasts and new Linux users alike. You have your choice of desktop: KDE 4.3 or GNOME 2.28, a rock-solid Linux kernel (188.8.131.52), a technology preview of WebYaST, and much, much more.
This release has been pretty long in the making. We unleashed 11.1 nearly 11 months ago in mid-December. Then the project had some time for self-reflection and consideration about what the best release cycle would be, and that pushed this release to November.
But if you give it a shot, I think you‚Äôll find that the added time has been well used and that 11.2 is going to be very well worth the wait. Don‚Äôt take my word for it, though: Grab it yourself on the developer download page and give it a spin! You can choose from the full DVD or the GNOME or KDE live CDs. All the CDs are available in 32-bit and 64-bit flavors.
