Will Stephenson mengumumkan rilis milestone keenam openSUSE 11.4:
openSUSE project manager Stephan Kulow has announced that openSUSE 11.4 Milestone 6 (M6) is ready for testing. With M6, the pace of development is starting to slow down as the focus switches towards QA and bug fixing. The project has been evaluating systemd vs SysVInit to manage system and service start-up, and has decided to stay with SysVInit for 11.4 due to issues in getting the last 10% of the integration perfect. M6 sees the completed removal of the HAL hardware abstraction layer, to be replaced with the more up-to-date and actively maintained udev, udisks and upower suite. HAL was already scheduled for removal in 11.3, but it was retained while the last few software packages which depend on it were ported to udev and company.
