Novell plans to release early this year a public development framework and server build for openSUSE.
The framework will give third party ISVs and open source developers new resources and tools -- including code libraries and a public build server -- to streamline code and patch contributions to SUSE Linux, Novell said.
The framework will also enable developers to create packages and applications that run on Novell SUSE Linux or SUSE Linux-based distributions, the Waltham, Mass., company said.
