This Week in Linux: Mageia, openSUSE, Dreamlinux

Filed under
Linux

This has been an exciting week or so in Linux development. openSUSE 12.3 Milestone 0 was released, Mageia 3 Alpha 2 has been delayed, and Dreamlinux calls it quits. In addition, Fuduntu gets a new release, Fedora cleans out Compiz, and Debian was updated to 6.0.6.

On October 3 Jos Poortviet announced the release of openSUSE 12.3 Milestone 0. It came with lots of updates like KDE 4.9.1, Linux 3.6.0-rc7 and Xorg X Server 1.13; but it also included changes like "jpeg-turbo is now the default jpegv8 implementation, jpegv6 is dropped," "Support for OPUS codec added via libopus," and "Mesa updated to upcoming v9 snapshot."

These include the Linux 4.8 kernel packages and an updated graphics stack based on a newer X.Org Server version and Mesa 3D Graphics Library. Read more
