Dear SuSE Linux customers and friends,
We started shipping the brand new SuSE Linux 7.3 yesterday! We should
have all of the pre-orders in the mail by Friday, and it should be in
the retail stores (Best Buy, CompUSA, Fry's, Microcenter and Borders
by the middle of next week.
SuSE Linux 7.3 offers high-end enterprise and standard desktop
users advantages in security, stability and a greatly improved
ergonomical user interface with new image, graphics and audio
As security becomes a higher priority among home and office users,
SuSE Linux 7.3 responds by offering the possibility of a "Personal
Firewall" straight from the installation process. A user-friendly
graphical front-end allows easy firewall configuration. The
resulting security makes it simple to protect your host or network
against unauthorized access.
Furthermore, SuSE's "crypto file system" ensures that
sensitive data is secure even if someone's entire hardware is stolen.
SuSE YOU (YaST Online Update) ensures that the Linux system always
stays up-to-date. Upon request, SuSE YOU connects to the SuSE ftp
server and automatically installs the desired security updates and
bug fixes free of charge.
New improvements for the desktop include KDE 2.2.1, the latest
version of KDE's highly ergonomical user interface.
New print assistant guides the user safely through the protocol
jungle of lpr and cups.
In Linux Kernel 2.4.10 and glibc 2.2.4, SuSE Linux 7.3 provides
state-of-the art Linux technology. Private users will appreciate an
extended range of drivers and improved USB support. The automatic
hardware detection feature has been considerably expanded to include
even more components, i.e. CD writers, Scanners and TV cards, which
enables the setup tool, YaST2, to complete the installation and
Internet connection almost entirely by itself.
Software RAID support
enhances performance and provides reliable protection against data
losses. Linux professionals will be eager to try out the runlevel
editor for the selective activation of server services. For the
first time, the scope includes YaST2 modules for administering NIS
servers as well as NIS and LDAP clients.
