I am looking for a list of Features, some 'KEY' features of openSUSE
11.3.Also what special changes have been made compared to 11.2.As i have
plans to make a promo for 11.3,so this would be very essential.

Here are some of them   , i
would like to know the updated data (if any) ...

I think there are very varying opinions on what are key features.

You can see most of the new features for 11.3 in openFATE

Of course that list is not complete and also generally does not include all
the cool stuff from upstream development.

Iirc there was a request some time ago for someone to take on the task of
monitoring the commit list to keep track of interesting commits. But I guess
there was no takers. We'd probably need a whole gang of people to replace

I always make notes of new features that I think are particularly useful or
have marketing value, so far my list for 11.3 has the following, but it's
likely to be very lacking:

lxde on the dvd
ktorrent with dht
btrfs (well, was already in 11.2 apparently)
kernel mode setting stuff

I'm a storage guy, so assuming the new topology stuff all plays nicely
in the storage stack, I think it will be a big feature for 11.3.

ie. Automatic alignment of partitions with underlying storage topology.

It required kernel, library (util-linux), and parted changes, but
parted was the last to go in and it went in a couple days ago.
