When? I doubt it will be long before SP2 arrives, it looks like Novell
is preparing its website:
‘Release Notes for SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 Service Pack2’
And I guess that answers the “what”.
Did you find these release notes linked from somewhere or just by
changing a 1 to a 2 in the url?
It looks to me like they’re still being written. If you look at the
Miscellaneous section some of the text looks like place holders. Section
2.2 for example about btrfs. As mentioned earlier in this thread
Novell/SUSE have stated that there will btrfs support in SP2, but these
release notes just contain little more than an url to something that
gives me a 403 Forbidden error.
The New Features section is be identical except the word Novell has
been replaced with the word SUSE. This:[color=blue]

That’s correct in the context of SP1 because SLED 11 was released with
GNOME 2.24 which was updated to 2.28 in SP1. In the context of SP2 it’s
nonsense. If SP2 has GNOME 2.28 it hasn’t been updated, let alone to the
latest version. If in SP2, GNOME has been updated to the latest version
that would be mad because the latest version is 3.2 and GNOME 3 is too
radically different to GNOME 2 for such a change to be in an SP release.
Based upon what happened between SLED 11 and SP1, I expect and hope to
see GNOME 2.32 in SP2.
It’s certainly interesting, exciting even, to know that there is now
something at the url one would expect to find SP2 release notes at
