Hi all,

After lot of work and several delays, we proudly announce the
availability of SUSE Linux 10.1. In tribute to 42 and as today is the
fifth anniversary of the death of Douglas Adams, we dedicate this
release to him.

It can be downloaded as described below and on
http://download.openSUSE.org in x86, x86-64, and ppc versions -
both via ftp from our mirrors and bittorrent. We'd appreciate if you
use bittorrent to share the download with others.

Initially we offer as ISOs the 5 CD open source version plus our
add-on CD with proprietary portions, such as Adobe Acrobat Reader,
RealNetworks RealPlayer, and Sun Java Runtime Environment. DVDs will
be available for download from Thursday, May 18.

Additionally two ftp trees are available - one with only open source
packages and one with non open source packages. The open source tree
contains packages build from more than 3100 source RPMs.

As usual, we ship all the latest open source packages available at the
time. But we want to give special mention to Xgl for 3D acceleration
on the desktop (http://www.opensuse.org/xgl), NetworkManager for
getting painless wifi access everywhere, the completely open source
AppArmor 2.0, and the full integration of XEN 3 in YaST.

We'd like to thank you all for testing heavily, reporting bugs, giving
feedback on mailing lists, etc., and in general for supporting and
participating in creating SUSE Linux 10.1.

Have a lot of fun!

Michael, Adrian and Andreas

P.S.: Here're all the details for downloading:
