The openSUSE Project is pleased to announce the release of the latest
incarnation of openSUSE, with support for 32-bit and 64-bit systems. openSUSE
11.3 [1] is packed with new features and updates including SpiderOak to sync
your files across the Internet for free, Rosegarden for free editing of your
audio files, improved indexing with Tracker, and updates to Mozilla Firefox,
and Thunderbird.

Among these many new features, openSUSE also provides support for netbooks and
the Btrfs file system support. Users can expect to see improved hardware
support with the 2.6.34 Linux kernel and updated graphics drivers. And support
for the next generation of interactive computing for touchscreens like the HP
TouchSmart.

openSUSE continues its tradition of delivering the popular KDE, GNOME and Xfce
desktop environments, and now also provides the lightweight LXDE desktop
environment. With GNOME, you can use the latest 2.30.1 version or take your
installation for a drive with a preview of the upcoming GNOME 3.0. Or choose
KDE SC 4.4.4 for the latest updates. They all feature the polish and
integration that the openSUSE distro has been known for.

For a full view check the complete collection of screenshots [2] or install it
right away [3]. As we expect very large demand for the ISOs we suggest you
check out BitTorrent as download method ;-)

For servers and development platforms, administrators can take full advantage
of the new MariaDB and MySQL Cluster services as well as Conntrack to filter
network packets for iptables. Developers will appreciate the plethora of tools
available at their fingertips with GCC, GDB and Mono and IDEs such as
Netbeans, Qt-Creator and many others. This is all on top of the countless
libraries available through the openSUSE Build Service [4] (OBS).

Visit our Product Highlights [5] page for a detailed list of new features.

The next release will be openSUSE 11.4 in March, 2011.

Thank you, and have a lot of fun!
