openSUSE 13.2 BETA

    • Just announced is the new BETA for openSUSE 13.2.

      openSUSE 13.2 will have lots of new things and lots more is coming.

      • Linux kernel 3.16 (going for 3.17)
      • GNOME 3.12 (planning for 3.14)
      • Plasma Workspaces 4.11, KDE applications 4.13 mixed with 4.14 (will be all 4.14)
      • and for testing: Plasma 5.1 (will be 5.2, perhaps 5.3), Frameworks 5.2 (will be 5.5 or higher) and the latest KDE Applications.
      • btrfsprogs is now at 3.16. btrfs will be the default filesystem in openSUSE 13.2 so help test the heck out if this!
      • AppArmor 2.9 beta bringing the new python-based tools developed during GSoC 2013 and some new rule types to mediate sockets, ptrace, signals and dbus (I’m not sure if all of them are already supported by the openSUSE kernel and dbus – you’ll need to ask the kernel and dbus maintainers)- and of course the usual bunch of profile updates, bugfixes etc.
      • LibreOffice
