The openSUSE team is proud to announce the second Beta release of
openSUSE 11.0! New changes include countless bug fixes, as well as the
import of the new openSUSE 11.0 artwork for login, splash screens and
more. The live installation should work, but there are several known
quirks, so be sure to check the most annoying bugs list before
proceeding with the live installation.

For screenshots and additional information, see the news posting at:

Remember that this is a beta. It may not be safe to run for production
systems, and should be used by users interested in testing the next
release of openSUSE for bugs.

Most Annoying Bugs

Live CD:

* Automatic Configuration after boot into installed system behaves
weird (Bug #385563, Bug #385558)
* Installation leaves traces of Live system (Bug #385829)

See the Most Annoying Bugs[0] page on the wiki for an up-to-date list.

contribute to the openSUSE distribution by filing bug reports and
giving feedback to the developers.

* Reporting bugs: Please report all bugs you find on in our
Bugzilla as explained on
* Discussion and feedback is very welcome as well; the most
appropriate place is the opensuse-factory@xxxxxxxxxxxx mailing list.
Or in the #opensuse-factory IRC channel.

The next planned release[2] is openSUSE 11.0 Beta 3 on May 13.


Have a lot of fun!
