OpenSuse 12.2 Release Date 2012
OpenSuse is a open source operating system built on top of the Linux kernel, made and developed by the community-supported OpenSuse Project and sponsored by SUSE. After Novell acquired SUSE Linux in January 2004, Novell decided to release the SUSE Linux Professional product as a 100% open source project. OpenSuse project always releases the update distribution roughly every 8 months.
OpenSuse 12.2 Details
OpenSuse project has released the third milestone for version 12.2 of its Linux distribution. According to the project’s roadmap, a fourth milestone release is now planned for 26 April and will be followed by a beta and two release candidates. While two of the milestones have fallen behind schedule, the final version of OpenSuse is still expected to arrive on 11 July 2012. The current stable release is OpenSuse 12.1 from November 2011.
OpenSuse third milestone offers a choice of the KDE SC 4.8.2 or the GNOME 3.4 desktop environments – previous milestones have only included unstable development releases (e.g. GNOME 3.3.x) of GNOME. The LibreOffice productivity suite has been updated to version 3.5.2 and Plymouth has been merged; the developers note that integration of Plymouth into other packages is also “nearly finished”. Version 2 of the GRUB boot-loader is included, however it causes the LiveCD installer to fail, as a workaround users are advised to select GRUB rather than GRUB2.
