openSUSE 13.2 Beta 1 Was Release

The openSUSE project is a community program sponsored by Novell. Promoting the use of Linux everywhere, this program provides free, easy access to openSUSE, a complete Linux distribution. The openSUSE project has three main goals: make openSUSE the easiest Linux for anyone to obtain and the most widely used Linux distribution; leverage open source collaboration to make openSUSE the world’s most usable Linux distribution and desktop environment for new and experienced Linux users; dramatically simplify and open the development and packaging processes to make openSUSE the platform of choice for Linux developers and software vendors.

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
