opensuse tumbleweed

The leader of the OpenSUSE Tumbleweed project, Dominique Leuenberger, has officially announced that the distribution already has Gnome 3.24 as the latest version of the Gnome desktop.

The distribution based on SUSE Linux, OpenSUSE is characterized by having a graphical KDE environment although it also has other desktops like Gnome or Xfce that work just as well as KDE. In this case, the development team has updated the version of the Gnome desktop to its latest version.

In addition to incorporating Gnome 3.24 as an alternative to Plasma, OpenSUSE Tumbleweed has incorporated GCC 7 as an optional compiler for the distribution., together with GCC 6, the standard compiler of the distribution.

This is something that will change in the next version and will become the standard compiler of the distribution, thus leaving out GCC 6, which is currently the default compiler of the distribution. Along with GCC 7 and Gnome 3.24, OpenSUSE Tumbleweed has other new features among the most common programs in the distribution. In this aspect highlights kernel 4.10.4, the latest stable version of Linux, Qemu 2.8 for virtualization or Mozilla Firefox 52.0.1 among other popular shows.

The next version of OpenSUSE Tumbleweed will have new KDE-related features, such as the Plasma 5.9.4 desktop or the 4.10.5 kernel. Not forgetting that the latest software to appear during these days will also be in distribution. Although for that we will have to wait a little longer.

OpenSUSE Tumbleweed is a rolling release distribution It is based on OpenSUSE, that is, the updates are continuous and do not require monthly versions. This means that users who have OpenSUSE only have to update your operating system with the Yast to get these changes. If we don't have OpenSUSE Tumbleweed, we can get this distribution through this link. In any case, we will only need to install it once to have the latest from this distribution.
