OpenSUSE 12.2 Stabilizes Linux

Andreas Jaeger, program manager for openSUSE told ServerWatch that the project implemented a feature freeze prior to the delay decision. As such, a few packages including for example Firefox, will need to be updated by users when they download the distro. Another package that did get a little stuck behind is the KDE desktop which is currently at the 4.9 release, while openSUSE 12.2 is including only the 4.8 release.

He stressed however that the overall net result of the delay was a positive one for the distribution, providing a better final release of openSUSE 12.2.
