Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, OpenSUSE 13.1 has been released today, bringing some improvements to the previous version. Among others, it got support for the 64-bit ARM architecture (AArch64), better UEFI support for 64 bit hardware, VDPAU support in Mesa and Wayland/Weston support for both GNOME Shell and KDE Plasma.
OpenSUSE 13.1 comes with Kernel 3.11.6 which has good support for AMD, Nvidia and Intel drivers, Mesa 9.2.2, LibreOffice 4.1, Calligra 2.7.4, Krita 2.7.4, YaST 3.0, Zypper 1.9, LLVM 3.3, GCC 4.8, Xen 4.3, QEMU 1.6, Mozilla Firefox 24, Mozilla Thunderbird 24, Chromium 31, X.Org Server 1.14 and many others.
It is available in all the traditional flavours: GNOME 3.10, KDE 4.11.2, XFCE, LXDE and E17. Both the default file manager from KDE and Amarok got support for Android devices, in order to enable the users to easily push files on their smartphone or tablet.
For those who don’t know yet, openSUSE 13.1 is an evergreen version, this meaning that it will get security improvements and bugfixes after the 18 months of maintenance cycle, for at least three years.
OpenSUSE 13.1 can be officially downloaded from here, in all the available flavours.
