Number Two Always Tries Harder: openSUSE Milestone 2 released

Friends all over the place,

late last month we released the first milestone of openSUSE 11.3, now we
follow up with the second. Milestone 2 is part of the milestones where
we track new releases in the open source universe and test the building
of our various distribution images with them. While milestone 1
introduced various pre-release versions of free and open source projects
(KDE 4.4 RC1, OpenOffice 3.2 Beta4 or VirtualBox 3.1 beta 1) into our
development distribution openSUSE Factory, this milestone is
characterized by final releases of those projects. We are also preparing
everything to switch to GCC 4.5.0 as the default compiler. Currently our
staging version of Factory already builds with it and our compiler
people document/fix the most serious issues, they aim at milestone 3 for
the switch. To learn more about the benefits of GCC 4.5.0 check the
Development Tools section below. As you can see, although we are
steadily moving forward, there is still a lot to come!

Go on to news.opensuse.org to read about the detailed changes that
happened in the various areas.
