openSUSE 11.2 Release Candidate 1 has been released

We’re well on the way to openSUSE 11.2! Today we’re happy to announce the first release candidate for openSUSE 11.2. This release includes quite a few bugfixes and several updates, including GNOME 2.28 final, Linux 2.6.31.3, and many others.

As the first release candidate for openSUSE 11.2, it should be almost ready for final release. However, there still are a few remaining known issues and the purpose of the release candidate is to discover any major issues before 11.2 final. It may not be suitable for production systems, but is ready for contributors who want to help with testing and development for 11.2.

What’s new in openSUSE 11.2?

The new version includes latest versions of all kind of software and delivers:

Live version upgrade. No need to stop working while upgrading from openSUSE 11.1 to openSUSE 11.2
Support for several social networks like Facebook, Twitter and identi.ca
Running openSUSE from an USB stick (especially for that we ask you for testing)
