openSUSE checking instrumentation — Prepare for Landing — openSUSE 11.3 RC2 now available!

July 1st, 2010 by

Following up on Michael Loeffler’s previous RC1 announcement, openSUSE is now doing a final check of instrumentation before landing.  The weather continues to be clear and all conditions continue to be smooth, and all systems are a go for final landing on July 15, 2010.  Now’s the time for us all to download the latest openSUSE RC2 release and all join in on a final check and get that 11.3 polished and in good condition.  You can download RC2 from our software portal and find detailed information on the evolving openSUSE 11.3 page.

You can find our most annoying bugs here.  And if you find anything new, please do report it on Bugzilla.  The ground crew needs your reports!

Have a lot of fun and let’s get to downloading!  They’re waiting to greet us at the terminal.

openSUSE Forums – vBulletin Upgrade Complete

July 1st, 2010 by

The vBulletin software that is the ‘Nuts and Bolts’ behind the openSUSE Forum has just undergone a major upgrade from v3 to v4. This resulted in some considerable down time on 30 June 2010. However, the results are impressive and openSUSE Forums now has a completely new look. It’s more than that though, the upgrade adds a much improved look and feel. The Forum Team expect some teething problems, as well as much discussion and opinion about the change. As far as changes go, I’d put this on a par with the kde move from 3 to 4. The dust will settle soon enough. Be assured the Forum Staff will be ready and willing to offer advice and assistance relating to this and of course normal help/advice with openSUSE.
