openSUSE 12.3 RC1
Note di rilascio:

As winter refuses to relax its icy grasp on the northern hemisphere, the openSUSE project would like to announce the first release candidate of version 12.3 of its popular Linux distribution. Major updates include the desktop environment KDE to version 4.10, GNOME 3.6 and kernel 3.7.6. Help to iron out the last few bugs before the final release by downloading RC1 from

What’s in there?

This preview includes the large number of fixes made to Factory since the beta, as well as the last major set of version updates.  RC1 needs a real workout to ensure we fix any remaining issues in time, so don’t wait for RC2, put it on your spare disk and give it a try now. Major changes include:

PackageKit 0.8.7
Major release allows transactions to be parallelized for better performance. The libzypp backend used by openSUSE was completely rewritten around the new API, allowing a lot of old ugly bugs to be shown the door.

Apper 0.8
Rewritten around new PackageKit, and the software update notifier has been rewritten as a plasmoid.  The language used in the UI has been changed to match usage in YaST and zypper better.

fcitx 4.2.7
The input method has several UI improvements for more efficient international text entry, and better Qt integration

Linux kernel 3.7.6
Has a bunch of driver fixes, including one bug that gives Intel machines hot flushes by disabling i915 RC6 power saving after suspend, fixes to hda and usb-audio, EFI firmware, NFS and the kernel radeon driver.

MariaDB replaces MySQL, as widely reported.

postfix 2.9.5 fixes bugs in rule pattern matching and in IPv6 support

WebYaST finally works on 12.3, but needs more testing

Samba 3.6.12 (Samba 4 missed the feature deadline)

For the first time, openSUSE 12.3 features custom-developed theming for Plasma Workspace. This features a dark tone-on-tone colour scheme, controlled use of texture and fashionably monochrome tray icons that stand apart from application icons.  Coordinated colour palettes in dark and light variations should appeal all tastes. Feedback on the new theme is very welcome at the opensuse-artwork mailing list.
