The next version of openSUSE 12.2 is being released later today. It’s finally being released after development issues slowed down the schedule a few months ago, but the wait will be well worth it, with plenty of features and updates.
There’s been a big increase in performance, with Linux 3.4, glibc 2.15, and KDE 4.8.4 going towards speed increases throughout the distro. There’s new innovation with XOrg 1.12 is included which introduces support for multitouch input, as well as GIMP 2.8, the latest Firefox, and Krita 2.4.
All this and more means that openSUSE 12.2 will by far be the best version of the distro ever, and you can get your hands on it later today at 12.00 UTC from the openSUSE website.
