The openSUSE Education team is proud to announce the release of updated openSUSE Edu Li-f-e - Linux for Education. A Linux distribution that provides parents, students, teachers as well as IT admins running labs at educational institutes with education and development resources for their needs. Edu Li-f-e is based on openSUSE 11.4. This new version has all packages available from the official update repository which contains many bug and security fixes. There are also some packages with version updates from the Open Build Service and a few new feature additions as well. New features include, but are not limited to: KDE version 4.7, GeoGebra, a geometry package providing for both graphical and algebraic input. The chromium browser from the open-source project behind the Google Chrome browser. And Blender, the cross platform suite for 3D creation with ffmpeg and luxrender support.
Check out the complete list of packages here.
LTSP prebuilt image is also updated, it now uses openSUSE 11.4 with all available updates, upstream LTSP packages are also updated to the latest snapshots. See this howto guide for setting up LTSP on openSUSE Edu. For more information see KIWI-LTSP portal page.
The ISO image can be used to create a live DVD or a bootable USB stick. If you intend to install it for everyday use, you need round about 20GB of disk space, the install will take about 10GB. More information about this image including known issues and their workarounds can be found here.
