Jan. 30, 2007

Development manager Adrian Schroeter on Jan. 29 announced the release of a live DVD edition of openSUSE 10.2, featuring a spiffy new 2.6.20-rc4 kernel plus the latest KDE, GNOME, and Xfce desktop environments.

"The last piece of the openSUSE 10.2 distribution got released today," Schroeter said in the release announcement. "The Live DVD image has a size of 1.7 GB and can be used on every x86 compatible system with at least 512 MB of memory."

  • GIMP 2.2.13 image editor
  • 2.0.4 office suite
  • SeaMonkey 1.0.99 web application suite
  • MySQL 5.0.27 relational database
