Factory-fresh delivery: Get your OpenSUSE fix daily
Until now, as with most new versions of software, new code for a new version of OpenSUSE had been bottled up for group testing at a beta or milestone stage.
In the OpenSUSE world, this milestone stage had taken place in something called the "Factory".
The milestone approach is now being abandoned.
The goal is to get more users and contributors involved in development and testing phase, speeding up fixes and improving quality.
