"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.
"The openSUSE 11.3 release follows major new updates by Linux
rivals Ubuntu in April and Red Hat's Fedora 13 Linux in June.
""Everywhere, there are lots of changes and we've enabled new
technologies from upstream," Andreas Jaeger, program manager at
openSUSE, told InternetNews.com. "The Btrfs filesystem is now
enabled and it's working pretty good at this point."
