Suse Linux 10.1 due end-April

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."

Fedora: The Latest

  • Korora 22 Flash Update
    As we announced when Korora 22 was released, Adobe Flash is no longer included by default.
  • Fedora repository for Doom stuff: Zandronum, Doomseeker, CnDoom
    I had a bit of free time over the last few days, and looked at the current state of the art for Doom on Linux. The awesome Rahul Sundaram has been looking after several Doom-related packages for a while – including the Chocolate Doom package – but there are some things that seem to be commonly used these days that we didn’t have packaged. So I packaged them up, and put them in a new repository!
  • CUDA 7.0 enabled programs for Fedora 22
    I’ve udpated the CUDA version in the Fedora 22 Nvidia repository, it now contains CUDA 7.0.28 along with the cuFFT 7.0.35 patch. Note that from this version, CUDA is x86_64 bit compatible only, so there are no more i386 packages. There is still the cudart library available for 32 bit, but I don’t think it’s worth packaging.
  • Secure Boot — Fedora, RHEL, and Shim Upstream Maintenance: Government Involvement or Lack Thereof
    Note that there are parts of this chain I’m not a part of, and obviously linux distributions I’m not involved in that support Secure Boot. I encourage other maintainers to offer similar statements for their respective involvement.
  • Remi repository is changing
    The "remi" repository exists for > 10 years, it have changed a lot, and some recent changes worth to be explained.
