openSUSE 13.1 RC2
openSUSE è un sistema operativo libero basato su Linux e adatto a PC, Laptop o Server.

Note di rilascio:

The openSUSE 13.1 release is getting very close – just a little over two weeks, according to the Roadmap. Today, Release Candidate 2 is available on Grab one of the images and help us test!

What’s new

The changes in this update are not very big or ground shaking. This is a sign of openSUSE 13.1 maturing quickly: we focused on bug fixing. Obviously, the bugfixing hackathon helped a lot. Below is a limited list of changes (omitting most bug fixes):

systemd was updated to version 208
Shim should now work which means the secure boot is possible
Plasma-nm no longer replaces the knetworkmanager
Calibre is now fully operational
kernel was updated with more fixes and one speedy improvement everyone could read about on phoronix (the radeon/nouveau timer improvements)
In the area of virtualization the xen and libvirt packages were updated
A lot of migration issues were fixed so zypper dup from older release will go smoother
Apper should no longer choke on multiple license agreements
YaST parts were updated fixing bunch of installer bugs
XFCE can now properly suspend
e17 artwork was openSUSEfied (yay!)
Akonadi should better handle PostgreSQL as backend
Our vlc version was updated to 2.1 which is the latest and coolest provided
Translations updates
And again, this is a partial list: there are bugfixes for many issues reported by testers included.


openSUSE 13.1 will have to stand up right in a proud tradition of great stability so it will need a final serious workout before we release it upon the world! We wrote about testing a while ago, and we urge you to check out that article and help out!

We ask you to give some extra attention to:


livecd’s and usb live sticks – these did not work in RC1, which was in part because this is hard to test automatically. We have some tests set up but manual testing is really needed to ensure the live images work well.

Secure Boot/UEFI. If you have a machine with Secure Boot and UEFI and 12.3 didn’t work for you, please, test this 13.1 RC2. With this RC2 we added a fix related with the alignment of certificates that can cause fails on some UEFI firmware.
