This Week in Linux: Mageia, openSUSE, Dreamlinux





linuxThis has been an exciting week or so in Linux development. openSUSE 12.3 Milestone 0 was released, Mageia 3 Alpha 2 has been delayed, and Dreamlinux calls it quits. In addition, Fuduntu gets a new release, Fedora cleans out Compiz, and Debian was updated to 6.0.6.

On October 3 Jos Poortviet announced the release of openSUSE 12.3 Milestone 0. It came with lots of updates like KDE 4.9.1, Linux 3.6.0-rc7 and Xorg X Server 1.13; but it also included changes like "jpeg-turbo is now the default jpegv8 implementation, jpegv6 is dropped," "Support for OPUS codec added via libopus," and "Mesa updated to upcoming v9 snapshot."

Anne Nicolas, all around indispensible person at Mageia, announced Wednesday that Mageia 3 Alpha 2 was delayed. Mageia 3 Alpha 2 was due yesterday, but Nicolas said it would probably be delayed a day or three. She stated that the nasty issue preventing live images was close to being solved and that we can expect live CDs and DVDs next developmental release.

Bill Toulas, of Unixmen.com, noted yesterday that "Dreamlinux Is No More." Unfortunately, that was about all he knew – and apparently, no one else is saying much more. The Website is still operative, but all the content is gone. Toulas says he thinks we are "surely going from the period of distribution plethora to a period of a great cleanup where only the distributions that have something really different to offer will stay alive."

In other tidbits, Debian released version 6.0.6. Users will probably just update through the package managers, but new users have refreshed images to install. Fuduntu got updated to 2012.4 and brought a few more than its usual quarterly updates. And finally, Phoronix is reporting that Compiz has been excised from the Fedora line-up. It’s been unmaintained for a while and it was time to kill it off.
