openSUSE 13.1 released

By

openSUSE, the community project supported by SUSE Linux, released version 13.1 of its Linux distribution on Tuesday, a little more than eight months after the last release, 12.3.

There are quite a few new features, but the Btrfs filesystem is still not the default; it is, however, available and considered suitable for everyday usage.

The latest release from the OpenStack cloud project, OpenStack Havana, is available with 13.1. The release has support for mounting Amazon s3 buckets as local filesystems and includes Samba 4.1 which provides much better support for Windows domains.

There is experimental support for the new display server, Wayland; this includes preliminary support for the Weston support in both GNOME Shell and the KDE Plasma Desktop. Support for ultra high-resolution in applications and shells is improved.

he kernel that comes with 13.1 is version 3.11. There is better font hinting due to the new font engines in Freetype 2.5.

The set-up utility YaST has been ported to Ruby which means it is open to contributions from developers.
