openSUSE 12.1 On its Way

Filed under
SUSE

The second of six openSUSE 12.1 developmental releases was announced today right on time by Jos Poortvliet. This 12.1 cycle will include the aforementioned six milestones releases as well as two release candidates. The final product is scheduled to be released to the public on November 11.

One of the biggest changes in 12.1 will be the replacement of sysV with systemd. This is a major transplant and every distro that has made the move experienced a plethora of problems. A couple even postponed the full integration due to usability issues. As Poortvliet said in the announcement, there have been a lot of objections to the move and the discussion is finally slowing on the openSUSE Factory mailing list.

Phoronix offers some criticism of KDE software, and this is how KDE deals with it

About a month ago, Eric Griffith posted an article on Phoronix where he compared Fedora’s KDE spin to the main Fedora Workstation which uses GNOME. In that article, Eric described a number of issues that he became fully aware of when comparing his favorite desktop environment, Plasma (and the KDE applications he regularly uses) with GNOME’s counterparts. I read that article, shared it with other KDE designers and developers, and we came to the conclusion that yes, at least some of the issues he describes there are perfectly valid and clearly documented. And since KDE does listen to user feedback if it makes sense, we decided we should do something about it. Read more
