What time will 12.1 be released?

I am going to be the designated downloader for our department. Does anyone know what time of day in which time zone it will be released? I am just trying to figure out if I can start the download before going to bed. I have a group that is waiting with baited breath. Since I work for the Networking dept. I would like to prevent a group of folks all initiating their own connections. :wink: I have not seen any hour countdowns yet. Thanks.

I don’t know for sure, but my recollection is midnight GMT+1 (in Germany).

I could be recalling incorrectly, though.

Cool! It’ll be out when I get home from work then. :slight_smile:

Really looking forward to this one. Gonna get in at the start with 12.1.

So since I am on the East Coast USA (-5:00… or -4:00? I can never remember with these clocks arbitrarily changing forward or back…) that should be 9:00-10:00 AM? I’m bringing my laptop into work and setting up near the wi-fi router (they don’t track that so much)!

Awesome. Thanks. Check here folks.

We are GMT -5 right now on the east coast of the U.S. Current local time in U.S.A. – New York – New York

I live in the Central Time Zone & for me here the release always started 8:00 AM here.

We are using Linux! We have a date converter installed. Look:

[DATE]
cer@Telcontar:~> TZ=“EST” date --date=“Nov 16 14:00 GMT”
Wed Nov 16 09:00:00 EST 2011
[/DATE]

Very cool! I never knew that. :good:

That’s not the only format. For example:


cer@Telcontar:~> date
Wed Nov 16 10:02:40 CET 2011
cer@Telcontar:~> TZ="Asia/Tokyo" date
Wed Nov 16 18:02:56 JST 2011

But:


cer@Telcontar:~> TZ=JST date
Wed Nov 16 09:03:24 JST 2011

which is wrong.

OpenSUSE 12.1 is out !
Some mirrors are already available :
Index of /opensuse/distribution/12.1/
Index of /pub/mirrors/opensuse/distribution/12.1/iso/

Go for the torrents, guys !

Downloading! Now I only wish I’d woken up sooner!

Downloading the DVD Torrent!!!

Can’t wait to install :smiley:

Burning now, KDE or gnome…that is the question!

Not that anyone is overly concerned, but the answer was KDE. :slight_smile: Also, going to use backups and give btrfs a shot…

ARRRGGGHHH!!!

I was going to bring my home laptop into work and use their public wi-fi to download it (and figured since I had all day, I’d download the DVD version too!) BUT I FORGOT IT AT HOME!

So now I am stuck with torrent-less Windows to download it during a meeting later on today (hope it runs long :wink: )

I guess I’ll have to just go for the Live KDE for now, so I can see how it will work on my systems (Intel graphic laptop, and nvidia video desktop… and maybe even my work laptop “after-hours” :wink: )
