I’d like to do a special call for testing our update stack. Besides the installation itself, updating packages is one of the most important criteria so that we can deliver fixes and you can install software. Some test cases are available at http://en.opensuse.org/Libzypp/Testsuite. Please also use the updates we’re going to put on our update server. You can install packages and updates with the YaST Qt and Gtk packager modules, with the opensuse-updater applets for GNOME and KDE and additionally with the command line tool zypper.
After quite a few rebuilds and testing, the openSUSE team is happy to announce that RC1 looks brilliant and is now available for download. We consider this release to be feature complete, stable, and suitable for testing from any user. For more information on the release schedule, take a look at the Roadmap.
