Milestones will soon be here
In an earlier post, I mentioned a change of direction for opensuse. The rolling releases (Tumbleweed) will continue. And the stable releases will be more closely tied to suse enterprise releases.
The name “Leap” has been chosen for the stable series, to suggest that it will advance by leaps rather than incrementally (as with Tumbleweed). And the first Leap version will be numbered 42.1.
There has been a lot of discussion on the factory mailing list and the project mailing list. You can browse those via the opensuse mailing list archive.
Yesterday’s discussion suggested that the first milestone (pre-release test version) will be available soon. This morning, there was an announcement that the milestone will be available real soon now.
When the milestone is released, I expect to download, install and test. And some readers of this blog might also want to get involved.
