openSUSE 12.3 Milestone 2 Is Here
The openSUSE team has announced the release of openSUSE 12.3 Milestone 2 of the popular open source operating system.
One of the biggest updates that come with this ‘release’ is LibreOffice which takes a leap from 3.5.4 to 3.6.3. It must be noted that openSUSE is one of the lead contributors to the LibreOffice project. This version comes with the ‘older’ 3.6 kernel, the team is already working on packages for 3.7.

The team has changed its policy and added KDE 4.10 to Factory, so it is expected that the final release (scheduled for March 2013) may come with KDE 4.10.x.
With this Milestone you will be able to play with GNOME 3.6.3, which is better integrated with systemd, and has a new “Airplane Mode”, that switches off all radios, including Bluetooth.
According to the press note, “Another updated package is QEMU, which goes from 1.2.0 to 1.3.0. With QEMU we can easily create and run virtual machines. This new version improves live migrations of virtual machines. That means that we can now stop a virtual machine and continue the execution in another place without noticeable problems. QEMU 1.3.0 adds many newly virtualized devices and chipsets.”
