openSUSE 12.1 review – new heights of high tech

Filed under

OpenSUSE 12.1, you say? Did we miss 12.0 then? No, this is the first release in the distribution’s slightly altered release numbering: from now on openSUSE will not have a .0 release but only .1, .2 and .3 releases. Because the distribution is following an eight-month release cycle, from now on the November release will always be the .1 release, the July release the .2 and the March release the .3.

The change in numbering came after a vote about adopting Fedora-style or Ubuntu-style release numbering or staying with the old scheme. Note that openSUSE does not have a major and minor numbering, so openSUSE 12.1 is not a major version bump.
