The delayed second beta of openSUSE 12.2 is finally ready for testing: “Stephan ‘Coolo’ Kulow has released beta 2 so it is time to start organizing these beta pizza parties. As you might know, openSUSE 12.2 is delayed while we search for ways to cope with the growth of our community so this makes our first second beta in a very long time. What’s new? While the focus of the over 800 changes in Factory in June has been on stabilizing there are a few important updates we want to mention: Linux kernel 3.4.2, GCC 4.7.1 and the latest Google Go, Firefox and Thunderbird 13.0.1, KDE SC 4.8.4.” Here is the release announcement with important notes about how to report bugs.
