SUSE 9.2 Professional Announced

I guess I won't be upgrading Gondor to SUSE 9.1 after all. Novell announced today that 9.2 will be shipping next month. Highlights include:

  • KDE 3.3 and GNOME 2.6 graphical desktop environments for enhanced usability and desktop comfort.
  • 1.1.3, a complete Word-, Excel- and PowerPoint-compatible office suite.
  • Novell® Evolution™ 2.0, the newest community edition of the popular Linux e-mail and personal information client, with integrated support for Microsoft* Exchange 2000/2003 connectivity, compatibility with Novell GroupWise® using IMAP, plus support for a broad set of standard e-mail
  • GIMP 2, a comprehensive image processing and graphics creation tool.
  • Inkscape, a new vector graphics application that outperforms all other Linux alternatives.
  • Nvu, a Web authoring system that combines Web file management and easy-to-use WYSIWYG (what-you-see-is-what-you-get) Web-page editing.
  • A selection of commercial software, including full versions of the text processing application TextMaker and spreadsheet application PlanMaker from SoftMaker, full-version backup software sesam from SEP, as well as a demo version of MainConcept's video editing software MainActor 5.
Sounds pretty sweet.
