Stephan Kulow has announced openSUSE 10.3 Live CDs based on Release Candidate 2 which also got synced out - its live installer should still be considered Alpha. The security support for SUSE Linux 10.0 will be discontinued soon, after over two years. The openSUSE Codecs Site went online which will provide openSUSE 10.3 users with hints when they try to play unsupported formats. There is a nice user report about Novell’s presence at the recent OpenOffice.org conference. Marcus Meissner did some observations on how fragmentation can affect package manager speed and added a support database article. Responding to a distribution survey, Pascal Bleser created some statistics about the amount of packages for openSUSE.
