OpenSUSE 13.1 Appears


The latest chameleon sports updated apps, bug fixes, and three years of support.

The Novell-sponsored openSUSE project has released openSUSE 13.1. The latest release uses a Linux kernel from the 3.11 release branch. Enhancements include better performance under heavy I/O load, as well as improved Btrfs and ext4 filesystem support.
According to the openSUSE project, the developers have taken particular care this time with automated testing and a bug-fixing hackathon. The new release supports openSUSE’s Evergreen project, which provides community-based extended maintenance for up to three years.
On the desktop, openSUSE 13.1 provides the KDE 4.11, Gnome 3.10, Enlightenment E17, Xfce 4.10, and LXDE desktops. Also inside are LibreOffice 4.1.3 and Firefox 2.7 browser.
For server operations, you’ll find Apache 2.4, MySQL 5.6, and Maria DB 5.5, as well as the OpenStack Havana cloud framework. A new feature called s3fs offers a userspace filesystem that stores data in the Amazon S3 service.
OpenSUSE 13.1 is officially available for download in the form of ISO images for various architectures, including i586, x86_64, and ARMv7. ARMv6 and ARMv8 (AArch64) are available as experimental architectures.
