OpenSuse adopts fixed release schedule, names future releases

By   |  March 6, 2009

The OpenSuse development team has announced it will now follow a fixed release schedule, much like distributions such as Fedora, Mandriva and Ubuntu. In an emailed announcement yesterday, Stephan Kulow said that the community had decided to adopt an eight-month rotating cycle with the first release being OpenSuse 11.2 in November.

Other popular distributions such as Ubuntu tend to work from six-monthly cycles but Kulow said that the OpenSuse community didn’t want to commit to a schedule that it couldn’t keep. “There are a lot of moving pieces at the moment, and we don’t want to commit to a schedule we can’t keep – or keep a schedule that doesn’t fit the project’s long-term needs,” Kulow said.

The first release in the new schedule will be OpenSuse 11.2, now also known as “Fichte”, which will be released in November. This release will be followed by OpenSuse 11.3 (codenamed “Rosseau”) in July 2010, version 12.0 (“Voltaire”) in March 2011, and OpenSuse 12.1 (“Lessing”) in November 2011.

Kulow said that public releases will happen on the Thursday before the 15th of the month, and the gold master will be finalised one week prior to that. He also said that the team is planning a strict four-week release candidate phase.
