OpenSuSE Linux 11.4 Released

Posted by Andrew at 7:35 AM on March 10, 2011

The latest version of OpenSuSE Linux, 11.4, has just been released and it’s chock full of new features. The replacement for OpenOffice.org, LibreOffice, gets its first major outing, KDE gets bumped to 4.6 and Gnome comes in at 2.32.

There’s a also a pile of updates to applications, including Empathy, RhythmBox, Amarok, Totem, Evince and Shotwell. For developers, GTK 3 is included so Gnome applications can be upgraded to the new framework.

I’m running 11.3 so I’ll be downloading from the mirrors tonight and upgrading over the weekend. I’m looking forward to the new eye candy provided by the KDE Plasma Desktop Workspaces. Ok, so I’m shallow.

If you want to try OpenSuSE, there’s a live┬áversion as well, in both KDE and Gnome flavours. Give it a whirl.
