As published in MuyComputer, after a delay compared to the original plan, openSUSE 12.2 meets another step in its development and has just published its first release candidate , suitable only for testing .
openSUSE 12.2 RC 1
has many new features, highlighting the Linux 3.4 kernel , the GRUB bootloader 2.0 or the desktop environments KDE 3.4 and GNOME 4.8.4 , among others. As a side note, has ruled out the inclusion of KDE 4.9, scheduled for launch on August 1, in pursuit of stability (in contrast with the decision taken by other GNU / Linux-based KDE, as Chakra).Following
system components, there are new versions of the package manager Zypper (which is poised to become the best of Linux), the GCC compiler (4.7 ) or Xorg graphical server (1.12.3). Also the latest versions of popular applications are present, for Firefox, GIMP or LibreOffice . More details.Under the new schedule
marked, the next and final openSUSE 12.2 RC will arrive on August 2, the final version in mid-September , no specific date (if no other developmental delays .) Because now the most important for the project is to polish all the errors found, so the best possible product launch.
If you’d like help with the task of reporting bugs or are just curious to try the latest before anyone else , downloading openSUSE 12.2 RC 1 is waiting for you.
