openSUSE 12.2 development cycle picks up steam

Filed under
SUSE

The openSUSE 12.2 development cycle is gaining steam with the release of our first milestone and there’s quite a number of new things to look forward to. Of course, you can expect new versions of our major desktops like GNOME Shell and KDE’s Plasma Desktop, not to mention updates to popular applications like Firefox, LibreOffice and more besides.

There is also a good chance we’ll be able to bring you some cool new projects in the desktop space: Cinnamon, the GNOME Shell fork offering a more ‘traditional’ desktop; Razor-Qt, the Qt-based lightweight desktop; and we might be able to ship KDE’s Plasma Active shell for touch devices. You can also count on deeper ownCloud integration and other cloud technologies like OpenStack. That said, there’s also more edgy stuff going on – many Geekos are active in our brand new ARM port; and there is a team of people working on an overhaul of YaST!

If you know openSUSE, you know YaST

    It's been five almost five months since the developers behind the Debian-based Devuan GNU/Linux operating system launched the second Beta version towards the first stable release of the OS, and they now announced the Release Candidate. The Devuan project continues its vision of providing a libre Debian fork without using the systemd init system, and the Release Candidate (RC) version brings the GNU/Linux distribution closer to a final release. The interesting fact is that this RC appears to be stable enough to be used for production work.
