Final release candidate is available for OpenSUSE Leap 42.2

Mr Douglas DeMaio of OpenSUSE community has announced release of OpenSUSE Leap 42.2 RC2, second and final release candidate upcoming stable OpenSUSE Leap release. The stable release of OpenSUSE Leap 42.2 is expected to arrive 16th of November.

OpenSUSE Leap is a community enterpirse operating system which mainly targets people who are looking for stable and conservative technologies. It shares core with SUSE Linux Enterprise(SLE) and there are several community contributed packages. This wil help developers and organizations to overcome the issues that come due to faster release cycles of OpenSUSE Tumbleweed.

From release announcement published on official news portal of OpenSUSE:
"A big change is that the Mesa Nouveau 3D driver was split out to a separate package as KDE crashes with it on some newer NVidia cards," wrote release manager Ludwig Nussel to the openSUSE Factory Mailing List.

Users of Leap’s newest version will notice improved capabilities with snapper snapshots based on the btrfs file system, which is the default file system selection. A new btrfs quota concept makes snapper much less disk-hungry and can be manually setup. Snapper is a poka yoke and can give system administrators confident about updating new packages and rolling back the system if an error is made. There is a selection of other file systems for Leap, but benefits of snapper are not available with the other file systems.
