openSUSE have released version 11.3 of their popular Linux distribution, with added support for smartphones, touchscreen and the Btrfs file system.

Here’s what they have to say about their latest release:

The openSUSE Project is pleased to announce the release of the latest incarnation of openSUSE, with support for 32-bit and 64-bit systems. openSUSE 11.3 is packed with new features and updates including SpiderOak to sync your files across the Internet for free, Rosegarden for free editing of your audio files, improved indexing with Tracker, and updates to Mozilla Firefox, and Thunderbird.

Among these many new features, openSUSE also provides support for netbooks and the Btrfs file system support. Users can expect to see improved hardware support with the 2.6.34 Linux kernel and updated graphics drivers. And support for the next generation of interactive computing for touchscreens like the HP TouchSmart.

openSUSE continues its tradition of delivering the popular KDE, GNOME and Xfce desktop environments, and now also provides the lightweight LXDE desktop environment. With GNOME, you can use the latest 2.30.1 version or take your installation for a drive with a preview of the upcoming GNOME 3.0. Or choose KDE SC 4.4.4 for the latest updates. They all feature the polish and integration that the openSUSE distro has been known for.

    That looks pretty nice, I’m tempted to give the Gnome version a whirl!

    I was kinda thinking the same thing, I’ve used openSUSE with KDE4 before and it gave me no end of problems (ok it was KDE4.1/4.2) but they were all desktop related, I don’t like KDE4 but I’ll give the Gnome version a go when I get time.
