Novell’s openSUSE has a new version number as well as new features added in its latest update to version 11.3. ServerWatch takes a look at what makes the new release tick: Support for the 2.6.34 Linux kernel might be an obvious addition, but then there’s LXDE, the low-end X11 desktop.
After eight milestone releases and two release candidates, Novell’s OpenSUSE 11.3 Linux distribution has now become generally available. The new version provides numerous improvements over the openSUSE 11.2 release, which debuted in November 2009.
Among the new items in openSUSE 11.3 is the next-generation Linux Btrfs filesystem, the Linux 2.6.34 kernel and support for the LXDE Linux desktop.
