openSUSE 10.2 Officially Released!

Thursday, December 07, 2006

The latest version of the popular openSUSE distro, has finally been released! Version 10.2!
For download we offer as ISOs the 5 CD open source version plus our add-on CD with proprietary portions, such as Adobe Acrobat Reader, RealNetworks RealPlayer, and Sun Java Runtime Environment.
DVDs for all architectures are available and contain the open source version plus proprietary add-ons.
For the first time we offer a language add-on CD which offers support for languages which are not part of our base language set up. The Live DVD will be release next week.
Upgrades/ Addons Include (Thanks to Linux and OpenSource Blog for the info):
  • Distribution renamed to openSUSE
  • Available for i386, x86_64 and PowerPC architectures
  • Package groupings are handled differently, 10.2 will use Patterns instead of selections.
  • numerous improvements to the package manager stack, including a new update notification applet (opensuse-updater) and a console application called zypper which are both non-ZMD based.
  • Linux kernel, using only SMP kernels (The kernel-default package contains the standard kernel for both uniprocessor and multiprocessor systems. The kernel comes with SMP support and runs with only minimal overhead on uniprocessor systems. There is no kernel-smp package anymore.)
  • glibc 2.5
  • X.Org 7.2rc2
  • using opensync instead of multisync for much better syncing
  • integration of powermanagement features into hal
  • support to install multiple gcc versions in parallel
  • removal of several unneeded SuSEconfig scripts
  • no reboot after CD1, display of slideshow during all media
  • autoconf 2.60
  • bison 2.3
  • gcc 4.1.2 cvs
  • gdb 6.5
  • make 3.81
  • both KDE and GNOME feature improved start menus compared to upstream
  • additional CD with non-tier 1 languages
Major Change: The now default filesystem is the high performance ext3 filesystem! It is replacing the resierfs that SUSE has used for most all releases in that past.

Download now! Read more @ the openSUSE mailing lists.

Enjoy! Downloading my copy as I write!
