GeekoCFD 6.0.1 brings the following updates:
- CFD and C++ development applications
- OpenFOAM 2.2.x, with x > 2. The repository release of OpenFOAM includes the latest updates and bug fixes made to OpenFOAM by its developers.
- gmsh 2.8.3, the latest version of the gmsh mesh generation tool.
- Eclipse Kepler SR1 with CDT
- Base openSUSE system
- Linux kernel 3.11.
- glibc 2.18.
- gcc 4.8.
- YaST 3.0, rewritten in Ruby.
- KDE 4.11.
- Qt 5.1.1 and 4.8.5.
- LibreOffice 4.1.
- Dropped packages
- Helyx OS: the package has been split into a core component (kernel) and the GUI. The kernel component requires root access to operate. For this reason it has been dropped until further consideration.
- QtOctave: the RPM is not available for openSUSE 13.1.
The openSUSE 13.1 release comes with Evergreen extended support, which will prolong its life after the standard end-of-life period of 18 months. GeekoCFD strictly follows the regular openSUSE release cycle, however users interested in a longer life cycle of their distribution can rely on the Evergreen project, which will start supporting openSUSE 13.1 at the end of its officially supported life-cycle in May 2015, and will continue supporting it until November 2016.
Finally some statistics: GeekoCFD has been downloaded a total of 4446 times and cloned 151 times at the time this announcement was written. Thank you for your support, and for your precious feedback.
P.S. The comment page on SUSE Studio has some spam. The SUSE Studio team is working on a permanent solution. Please, be patient while this problem is being addressed! The SUSE Studio developers are great, and they provide all the infrastructure at no cost too. Thanks!
