New developments in the Linux community with the release of openSUSE 11.3 on July 15, 2010. The new version of openSUSE offers an improved computing experience with more than 50 new features, including new netbook desktops, smartphone support, secure backup and file sharing in the cloud.
MeeGo also gets some love from the openSUSE Goblin team with a package code name Smeegol. The support package is heavily geared towards Multimedia thanks to Banshee and will include support of the the Amazon MP3 store, Digg, Facebook, MySpace & Flickr.
