Announcing openSUSE 11.0 Alpha0

6. Dec 2007 | News Team | No License

We’d like to kick start the development of openSUSE 11.0 by releasing the current state of Factory as an Alpha0 release. Since the release of 10.3, we checked in 2187 packages including fundamental package updates such as:

  • gcc 4.3.0

  • kernel 2.6.24-rc4

  • 7.3

  • KDE 3.5.8

  • KDE 4.0 RC1

  • CUPS 1.3.4

  • gdb 6.7.1

  • Alsa 1.0.15

  • Gimp 2.4

  • Yast2 2.16

The change between 10.3 and Alpha0 is quite big, but it still works pretty nicely. So please join the openSUSE 11.0 development in downloading, testing and using Alpha0 or daily updated Factory distribution.

The most annoying bugs are as usual listed on Bugs:Most_Annoying_Bugs_11.0_dev

So far there are some glitches in the installation process, that are mostly harmless. But the new kernel in particular can cause some regressions we would love to hear about through bugzilla, as described on
