To assure best quality for SUSE Linux 10.1 we will offer RC 2 at
openSUSE.org by end of this week.
We made major progress in the area of product updates and patch
management and invite everybody to test RC2 heavily and give feedback.
We will have RC 3 available at the mid of next week and we are confident
that we will move rapidly through the final phases of the release.
Thank you all for your support for SUSE Linux 10.1, with this version
we received for the first time more feedback from the community than from
engineers inside Novell,
