"The openSUSE development team, through Henne Vogelsang,
announced last evening (February 17th) the immediate availability
for testing of the openSUSE 11.3 Milestone 2 operating system. In
the new release, we can find bleeding-edge components, such as
Linux kernel 2.6.33, KDE Software Compilation 4.4.0, GNOME 2.30
Beta 1, OpenOffice.org 3.2.0, lots of improvements over the first
milestone release, and many bugs squashed! As usual, Live CDs with
KDE SC 4.4 and GNOME 2.30 Beta are available for everyone who wants
to test the new development release of the upcoming openSUSE 11.3
(see download link at the end of the article).
""Late last month we released the first milestone of openSUSE
11.3, now we follow up with the second. Milestone 2 is part of the
milestones where we track new releases in the open source universe
and test the building of our various distribution images with them.
[...] We are also preparing everything to switch to GCC 4.5.0 as
the default compiler. Currently our staging version of Factory
already builds with it and our compiler people document/fix the
most serious issues, they aim at milestone 3 for the switch."
