openSUSE 12.1 On its Way

Filed under
SUSE

The second of six openSUSE 12.1 developmental releases was announced today right on time by Jos Poortvliet. This 12.1 cycle will include the aforementioned six milestones releases as well as two release candidates. The final product is scheduled to be released to the public on November 11.

One of the biggest changes in 12.1 will be the replacement of sysV with systemd. This is a major transplant and every distro that has made the move experienced a plethora of problems. A couple even postponed the full integration due to usability issues. As Poortvliet said in the announcement, there have been a lot of objections to the move and the discussion is finally slowing on the openSUSE Factory mailing list.
