Memo to openSUSE 12.2: More polish, less angst

Filed under

SUSE

Chameleon fans, rejoice: openSUSE 12.2 is finally here. This release, due more than two months ago, has been plagued with delays.

Ordinarily a few delays might not be a big deal; bugs happen and most users would agree a late, stable release is better than an on-time buggy one. However, with this development cycle the delays were bad enough to cause some soul-searching among the openSUSE devs. OpenSUSE release manager Stephan Kulow writes that the distro needs to "use the delay of 12.2 as a reason to challenge our current development model and look at new ways."

It's unclear what those "new ways" may mean for the future of openSUSE releases, but at least now you have your openSUSE 12.2.

And the good news is that it is well worth the wait.

Rest here
