"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."
