OpenSUSE 11.1 Final Ready for Download
Article by George Norman
On 18 Dec 2008
After making openSUSE 11.1 available for pre-order last week, the openSUSE has recently ended the development cycle of this Linux distro by releasing openSUSE 11.1 Final, and by throwing a big party in Berlin and in other locations. The only thing that could cast a shadow on the celebrations is the announcement that openSUSE 10.2 will be discontinued (but I don’t think that will be the case).

If you are asking yourself how things will go down with the openSUSE 11.1 release for download, here is what the development team has to say: “Some might wonder what exactly will happen … Basically we turn on the headless chicken mode and waiting that our servers will melt away. Not this time! ™. The plan is to release openSUSE 11.1 at 14:00 CET (13:00 GMT). We added 3 quadcore servers to the wiki farm and Peter tweaked the configuration. Anyway, even with the new servers you should not go to the wiki to download it or wait for the announcement.”


To celebrate the release of openSUSE 11.1, launch parties will be thrown all over the world. The locations where they will take place include Nuremberg (as mentioned above) and Berlin, Germany; Melbourne and Sydney, Australia; Montreal and Quebec, Canada; Boston and New Jersey, in the good old US of A; and Saint-Petersburg, Russia. The list of party locations is quite long; if you would like to check it out, you can do so here.

If you would rather skip the party and focus on downloading openSUSE 11.1 Final, Peter Pöml from the openSUSE development team has been kind enough to post some advice on the matter (you can check it out here).

If you would like to get openSUSE 11.1 Final, a download location is available here. Alternative download location available here.
