    Phoronix: OpenSUSE 12.2 Released With New Features

    As expected, openSUSE 12.2 was released today as the latest major community distribution release out of the SUSE camp...

    KDE 4.8 is already dead by now. Why are they releasing dead software?

    KDE 4.9 is not a stable release. If people want to try out 4.9, they can just use the KDE:UNSTABLE packages from OBS.

    I put 12.2 on my laptop a couple of weeks ago when putting in a ssd. Its a nice gnome 3.4 desktop. I like the pretty boot splash and the grub theme... What else an be said? It's opensuse. Everything worked.

    Don't listen to the troll. 4.8.5 was released *after* 4.9.0. openSUSE will get a 4.8.5 update any day now due deadlines for the generation of master images or so 4.8.4 had to be included initially.
    Other than that even old branches are never closed for bugfixes. Additional fixes have already been ported to 4.8.x even after the 4.8.5 release. No software is dead that still receives fixes.

    On top of that 4.9 is of course available. I run it on openSUSE 12.2. It's just that KR 4.9 is in an additional repository.

    Are you talking about commits that have "Script Kiddy" as author? Any commit to 4.8 branch by a real developer is a mistake as there is no 4.8.6 release planned. So get over it, 4.8 branch is dead.

    ...finished.

    Linux users don't seem to be happy unless their software is in a perpetual alpha status.

    No. Scripty / Script Kiddy does not run on older branches.

    No.

    Irrelevant. 4.8.5 wasn't planned either. Usually distributions have a support life time of 18 months. Distributors pick bugfixes from the branch or commit them to the branch if they fix a bug themselves. The planned 4.8.5 update packages will also include the post-4.8.5 fixes.

    There is this thing called "stability". You might have heard of it. There is also this other thing, called an "optional KDE 4.9 repository".
