openSUSE 11.1 Unveiled
OpenSUSE 11.1 rolled out today, sporting more than 230 new features, many updates, and a brand new license. The newest release is also the first built entirely on the openSUSE Build Service.
According to the announcement, openSUSE 11.1 also includes Liberation fonts, improvements to YaST, and updates to Gnome, KDE, and OpenOffice.
"The KDE experience has been vastly improved in this release," says Joe 'Zonker' Brockmeier, openSUSE Community Manager. He says that some features, including KWin 3-D features and Plasma improvements, were backported from KDE 4.2, which will be out this January.
"Also, this release is the first that was built in the openSUSE Build Service, which paves the way for much more community contribution in future releases," Zonker says. "I'm also psyched about the new license, which kills the old unpopular EULA and makes openSUSE much easier to redistribute."
OpenSUSE 11.1 includes Linux 220.127.116.11, Glibc 2.9, Python 2.6, Perl 5.10, Mono 2.0, a new printer module, redesigned partitioner module, and a security module.

The newest release is also the first built entirely on the openSUSE Build Service. If you think that the title of this post is useful, chances are you are considering about using Linux as your primary or even just an alternative Os when you're just sick of your old system. However many think that Linux is too complicated that it appeals only to geeks, Linux-magazine.com can prove that this fantastic operating system is actually for everyone. It is always fascinating to read about openSUSE 11.1 Unveiled.
New openSUSE 11.1Yep - it's out alright. I loaded it and for a week a put it to the test on two 1.88 gig server machines acting as desktops for me. I have ran openSUSE 10.3 on them for the last year or so and really have gotten used to the excellent performances of the desktop and server mechanisms of 10.3...and I will say - I love 10.3...what I am currently typing this with.
Putting openSUSE on this very same box and it's twin - I have seen a direct and immediate 20 percent drop in performance. I haven't added any 3D drivers or any other extras and run straight up just like I do with 10.3 and 11.1 is definately not on these boxes anymore.
I really like the feel and action of 11.1 - but, when I get faster machines then I will run it. Until then - I will suffer my happiness with 10.3.
