    So... how do you install packages via the command line now without zypper?!?
    Zypper in 11.0 was fast. I find it hard to believe it would be abandoned.

    From the OpenSUSE updates list on the Novell website:
    Further improvements to software management through improvements to the zypper/libzypp utilities
    Looks like zypper is still there, and better than ever. Haven't installed myself, yet, but will later today.

    Good to hear... zypper was pretty darn good in 11.0, can't wait to see how it behaves in 11.1

    Yes zypper is still there. It's as fast as it was before, I haven't noticed any change in it and it works great as always.

    PackageKit is an abstraction layer which can use different backends for actual package management, i.e openSUSE uses a libzypp as backend while Fedora uses yum.

    Um, I don't want to hijack this thread or anything, but is there any simple way to upgrade suse from 11.0 to 11.1 without having to download the whole cd?
    i tried "zypper dup", but that didn't cut it.

    Anybody looking forward to installing 11.1. I'm sure this release will be awesome just like the last one was. OpenSUSE is the only distro apart from Slackware that I Install and enjoy using.

    I'm going to stick with KDE 3.5.10 this time because KDE 4.1 is still not there for me (I want a classic desktop not a folder view widget, but I understand this will be in 4.2).

    Anyhow I'm going to download and install tomorrow anybody else giving it a go on release day?
    Yesterday i have downloaded and installed it. i have yet to configure more. but nice installation window.
