"The Novell-sponsored OpenSUSE project released Milestone 2 of its OpenSUSE 11.3, featuring Linux 2.6.33, GNOME 2.3 beta, and a new network security stack. OpenSUSE 11.3 Milestone 2 also debuts the new KDE 4.4 desktop, which adds a netbook interface, plus new tabbing and social networking features.

"The OpenSUSE project, which acts as the community upstream source for Novell's SUSE Linux, released Milestone 1 of version 11.3 in late January. OpenSUSE 11.3, which is scheduled for final release in July, offers upgraded versions of open source software including Linux 2.6.33, OpenOffice 3.2 Beta4, VirtualBox 3.1 beta 1, and Mono 2.6.

"The release also includes the major new 4.4 release of the KDE desktop (see farther below), as well as the 2.30 beta 1 of the GNOME desktop. Live CDs with either environment are now said to be available. Plans for the upcoming Milestone 3, meanwhile, include the switch to GCC 4.5.0 as the default compiler, says the OpenSUSE project."
