openSUSE 11.2 Milestone 7

Hi!
The openSUSE community released the 11.2 M7 on September 10 - yes I know it was about 15 days ago... so there is nothing new in this post :D. I've just wanted to publish some screenshots from my VirtualBox about the upcoming release of openSUSE.
For the complete list of changes see http://en.opensuse.org/Factory/News.

The bootloader is still using the old 11.1 artwork - it's a bug feature:

The new KDE4.3 artwork - KDM login screen (Air theme):

Improved widgets and usability, the desktop themes are using more gradient/blur it's looking very cool now:

So we get a good bluetooth manager pre-installed? Because last time I installed kde 4.3.1 and it didnt have one. And on selecting kdebluetooth4, everything changed and became messy

I can't confirm that. There exists a bluetooth manager framework but I haven't tried it yet.
Take a look to this wiki page http://en.opensuse.org/Bluetooth, if it works under 11.1 it should work with the next versions too.
KDE 4.3.1 is still in development stage, so it can be buggy to - https://bugs.kde.org/.
Thank you for your comment!

To add to the bluetooth topic, yeh i used it under M7(not in VB). And it is working very well without any issues in connecting to devices(at least for me).
About KDM login screen. its much better than the previous version. It looks cool.
Overall 11.2 is going to rock in every field. Its going to be a solid distro ever. Waiting for the final release.
