The third milestone also includes OpenOffice 3.1.1 Alpha and version 2.1.1 of the Amarok audio player for KDE.
More details about the release can be found in the change log and an overview of the planned features for the final openSUSE 11.2 release can be found on the distributions own feature-tracking system, called OpenFate. openSUSE 11.2 Milestone 3 is available to download for 32 and 64 bit x86 systems as a DVD or LiveCD image.
