Filed under
SUSE

Novell has released developer builds of the next iteration of Suse Linux, version 10.1. Developed in collaboration with the OpenSuse community, the new version will include the latest Firefox, OpenOffice.org 2.0 with support for Visual Basic macros, XGL, and an integrated desktop search engine when it is released near the end of the month.

Version 10.1 is the first version of Suse Linux created in full partnership with the open source community. Novell promises more than 1 500 software packages, including extensive desktop innovations for both GNOME and KDE users as part of the package.

"SUSE Linux 10.1 is a watershed accomplishment for Novell and the members of the OpenSuse community," says Andreas Jaeger, Novell's chief maintainer of Suse Linux. "Working with the community, we have extended and improved every element of the distribution to give the best possible desktop experience to first-time Linux users, while continuing to stabilize, integrate and provide the latest open source packages for experienced engineers."

The most recent release of Ubuntu, version 15.04, includes a fairly short list of changes compared to last year's Ubuntu 14.10, however some of the changes are significant. Some small changes include an upgrade of the kernel to Linux 3.19 and placing application menus inside the application window by default. A potentially larger change is the switch from Canonical's Upstart init software to systemd. Read more
