Subject: [opensuse-announce] SUSE Linux 10.1 Alpha 2 is ready


SUSE Linux 10.1 Alpha 2 is ready for testing.

New significant changes in 10.1 Alpha 2 since Alpha 1:

 * New experimental libfontconfig
   It contains bug which is causing segmentation faults in all KDE and
   Gnome applications after update/installation. You need to workaround
   this by calling "fc-cache -f" as root. (#128080)

 * APT successor SMART is provided in the smart rpm package. It can be used
   like apt-get using apt or YUM package repositories (all inst-source
   directories contain YUM meta data)

 * Update to KDE 3.5 Beta 2

 * Update to Gnome 2.11.1

 * Update to OpenOffice.org 2.0 RC 3

Note: Alpha 2 will be followed by Alpha 3 in four weeks, Alpha 2 is not
supported and we advice to not use it on production systems. It has
only gone through minimal testing on our side.
 
Please report all bugs according to
 
   http://www.opensuse.org/index.php/Submit_a_bug
 
This time we have made a tri-arch (i386, x86_64, ppc) ftp tree. We
 will release next week 10.0 Final with a tri-arch ftp tree as well if
 no issues are found with this 10.1 Alpha2 tri-arch tree.
