SUSE 10.1 Beta NINE?

OMG, I see a beta 9 directory showing up on mirrors around the world. Does this mean yet another beta instead of a release candidate? What does this mean for the release schedule?

According to the Roadmap, beta 9 is due out on March 31, that's today already in some parts of the world. We can now expect a release candidate on April 12. SUSE Linux 10.2 Alpha 1 is still scheduled for June 16.

UPDATE:

In a message from Andreas, the beta 9 will be released sometime today or tomorrow, with the first release candidate expected on or about April 12 and final release candidate on or about April 25.

He states:

We have looked at the current state of SUSE Linux and decided that
we're not ready yet to call this weeks build an RC1, there are far too
many open BLOCKER bugs and also some changes that need additional
testing. We therefore have to delay RC1 a bit, the updated schedule
is as follows:

Beta9: 2006-03-31 [1]
RC1: 2006-04-12
Goldmaster[2] Release: 2006-04-25

RC1 is followed by a few RCs, we will not put out complete ISOs for
the RCs, just delta-ISOs and update the repositories. The final RC
will then be made available on the 25th of April,

Andreas

Footnotes:
[1] or 2006-04-01 depending on how fast we can feed the mirrors
[2] Goldmaster is the name for the final Release Candidate (RC)

    Scott Kitterman exposed the email exchanges today of the Ubuntu Community Council informing Jonathan Riddell that due to his aggressive, confrontational behavior towards some within the Ubuntu community and Canonical, he should step away from "all positions of leadership in the Ubuntu Community for at least 12 months."

    I’d like to thank all the Kubuntu members who just voted to re-affirm me on the Kubuntu Council. Scott Kitterman’s blog post has a juicy details of the unprecedented and astonishing move by the Ubuntu Community Council asking me to step down as Kubuntu leader. I’ve never claimed to be a leader and never used or been given any such title so it’s a strange request without foundation and without following the normal channels documented of consultation or Code of Conduct reference.

  • Technology Is A Tool, Not A Learning Outcome
    Croatia is gaining in usage of GNU/Linux. That TFA was written shows the awareness of a lack of availability of IT. All that is needed to bridge the digital divide is for Croatian schools to catch up with and to exceed the rest of society in using GNU/Linux, the right way to do IT in education. Croatia needs to treble its IT in schools. That isn’t going to happen with Wintel. With FLOSS it is possible and can be done within a few years for no extra expenditure. With a little extra effort the change can be done in two years.

The problem is not with the updated applications, but with an upgraded GTK version, which may really affect the system. Before implementing apps by default, Canonical patches them to work well with Unity, basic on the philosophy that an app that works well does not need to get updated.
