SUSE 5053 Published by

SUSE Linux 10.1 has been released. Here the announcement:

After lot of work and several delays, we proudly announce the availability of SUSE Linux 10.1. In tribute to 42 and as today is the fifth anniversary of the death of Douglas Adams, we dedicate this release to him.

It can be downloaded as described below and on in x86, x86-64, and ppc versions - both via ftp from our mirrors and bittorrent. We'd appreciate if you use bittorrent to share the download with others.

Initially we offer as ISOs the 5 CD open source version plus our add-on CD with proprietary portions, such as Adobe Acrobat Reader, RealNetworks RealPlayer, and Sun Java Runtime Environment. DVDs will be available for download from Thursday, May 18.

Additionally two ftp trees are available - one with only open source packages and one with non open source packages. The open source tree contains packages build from more than 3100 source RPMs.

As usual, we ship all the latest open source packages available at the time. But we want to give special mention to Xgl for 3D acceleration on the desktop (, NetworkManager for getting painless wifi access everywhere, the completely open source AppArmor 2.0, and the full integration of XEN 3 in YaST.

We'd like to thank you all for testing heavily, reporting bugs, giving feedback on mailing lists, etc., and in general for supporting and participating in creating SUSE Linux 10.1.

Have a lot of fun!

Michael, Adrian and Andreas
