openSUSE 12.3 in VirtualBox

openSUSE 12.3 was released March 13, 2013.

Across the board, a darker and more uniform theme was adopted from the boot menus to the desktop wallpapers. GNOME 3 was a feature update, and KDE SC saw a feature update as well as a darker default theme based on Oxygen.

System V init was dropped by default in this release, leaving openSUSE 12.3 as the first exclusively systemd version of the distribution by default. Some work on PackageKit was done to optimize GUI package management tools and software stores. Although not particularly significant by this time, the Live ISO images crept past the size of a regular CD, leaving the net install image as the only install image for PCs with only a CD drive.

An older version of the VirtualBox Guest Additions is included. At least some features work, and you can resize the window or move the cursor in and out of the virtual machine without much struggle. GNOME 3 will work regardless of whether 3D acceleration is enabled as the llvmpipe software renderer is now included. Software rendering decreases performance, but getting the 3D acceleration drivers to play nicely is generally not worth the fuss.

Back one, openSUSE 12.2:
Up next, openSUSE 13.1:
