Feature #306657, revision 1
Title: Core technologies we wish to see

openSUSE-11.2: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: jimbo bigcreed (dimble_thricefoon)

This request revolves around the desire for 11.2 to implement some core
technologies due out in Q3 2009 that will ensure the distribution is not
obscelesent  long before it is replaced by 11.3 in Q3 2010.


These core technologies include:

1. Kernel 2.6.31 (due: end august/ start september).

By the time 11.2 arrives in mid november the 2.6.31 kernel will already be ten
weeks old, and 2.6.30 will be over six months old.

2. Xorg 7.5 / x-server 1.7 (due: mid august)

By the time 11.2 arrives in mid november the x-server 1.6 will already be over
six months old, and 7.4 itself will be over a year old.


The inclusion of 7.5 and kernel 2.6.31 will keep 11.2 fresh and relevant
throughout its nine month life, and prevent the perception of staleness among
suse enthusiasts in 2010.
