OpenSUSE 15.1 Beta available, just not for us (yet)

The beta for OpenSUSE 15.1 is now available, at least for x86_64. This isn't actually news on the ppc64(le) side because the Leap releases don't currently have a Power ISA port. However, if you want to run OpenSUSE on your Talos II, you can with the Tumbleweed releases, which is their rolling-release flavour and apparently (I'm told) works quite well on the hardware. Nevertheless, hopefully as the install base grows there will be more interest in a stable Leap release for Power ISA as well.
