openSUSE 13.1 was released November 19, 2013.

The login screen for KDM was a revamp in openSUSE 13.1. As well, both GNOME and KDE SC saw feature releases. GNOME 3.10 saw more header bar integration in its applications and early Wayland support. KDE for some time had been rebranding its applications, platform, and Plasma desktop as separate releases. KDE SC 4.11 is the last time that all of these were released with the same version number and release date, as Plasma 4.11 was an LTS release and the last feature update until Plasma 5.0 came out in mid-2014.

There were also improvements in AArch support, and BtrFS was deemed stable as an alternative filesystem by this release. openSUSE 13.1 would go on to be the base that SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLE) 12 was built on, which in turn would be the codebase for the openSUSE Leap 42 release series.

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 12.3:
Up next, openSUSE 13.2:
