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.

Fedora: The Latest

  • New "remi-php71" repository
  • PHP on the road to the 7.1.0 release
  • First round of Fedora 24 Updated Lives now available. (torrents expected later this week)
    As noted by my colleague on his blog the first round of F24 Updated Lives are now available and carry the date 20160720, Also as mentioned last week on his blog F23 Respins are not going to be actively made, however we and the rest of the volunteer team will field off-off requests as time and resources permit. We are considering a new/second tracker for the Updated Spins but as of today there are only .ISO files available at https://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/live-respins [shortlink] F24 Live-Respins . The F24 respins carry the 4.6.4-200 Kernel and roughly ~500M of updates since the Gold ISOs were released just 5 weeks ago. (some ISOs have more updates, some less)
