Less than one week after the release of openSUSE 11.2, developer Jigish Gohil of the openSUSE Education team has announced the availability of openSUSE 11.2 Edu Li-f-e edition. openSUSE 11.2 Edu Li-f-e is a customised variant of the Linux distribution aimed at education, specifically children and students, and includes a number of Educational applications.

The latest release of the education-focused distribution features a choice of GNOME 2.28, KDE 4.3, Sugar 0.86 (made famous by the OLPC Project) or IceWM for the desktop environment, although GNOME is the default selection. Educational applications in the release include various development programs, such as IDEs, compilers and debuggers, an office suite and "complete multimedia support". Additionally, LTSP server is included, so users can run openSUSE on PC's in the network without needing to install or modify local disks.

More details about the release can be found in the original release announcement. openSUSE 11.2 Edu Li-f-e edition is available to download as a hybrid DVD ISO image file from the project's site.
