Final openSUSE 11.2 Release Candidate Available

Publication of a final Release Candidate for GNU / Linux openSUSE 11.2 is available.

What’s new in openSUSE 11.2?
openSUSE 11.2 will come with the latest version 2.6.31 of the Linux kernel, the beating heart of every openSUSE system. The file system of openSUSE will be switched to the new Ext4 as well.

openSUSE 11.2 will also include new and updated drivers for your hardware, meaning more and newer devices will work with openSUSE. In addition, special attention has been paid to the netbook market, and new drivers will enable openSUSE to run better on a wider range of netbooks.

On the Desktop

openSUSE 11.2’s desktop environments will continue to evolve. In addition to the work of the openSUSE Project in the desktop, openSUSE 11.2 will include the latest versions of the two desktop environments, KDE 4.3 and GNOME 2.28.

KDE users will enjoy the new Firefox KDE integration, KDE4 integration, consistent KDE artwork and all standard applications being ported to KDE4 including KNetworkManager, Amarok, Digikam, k3b, Konversation and more.

GNOME users will notice a fresh new look to openSUSE 11.2 in the windows and user interface, called Sonar.

No matter what desktop you choose, openSUSE’s web browser and office suite will gain great new features. Mozilla Firefox 3.5 gives users more control over their browsing experience, including a Ctrl-Tab switch between tabs and a private browsing mode. 3.1 delivers even more new improvements to the office suite, such as the ability to carry out a structured conversation through the word processor’s commenting functions, and major improvements to the graphics drawing application.
