OpenSUSE 12.1 delivers Fedora punch with GNOME 3

Filed under

The big news in openSUSE 12.1, whose first beta has recently dropped, is the arrival of GNOME 3 – in this case GNOME 3.2.

Unlike Fedora, which is already into its second GNOME 3-based release, openSUSE had – thanks to its release schedule – stuck with GNOME 2 for its last release earlier this year.

OpenSUSE 12.1 embraces GNOME 3.2 and, like Fedora 16, drops support for the GNOME 2.x line.

This release marks a slight change to openSUSE's versioning convention. If you were thinking this should be openSUSE 12.0, you're correct.
