Note: The delta ISOs that are out there right now are corrupt! The generation of the delta ISOs was defective due to a bug in deltarpm 3.0. We are preparing new delta ISOs as I blog this. As soon as they are available, we will issue an announcement to the openSUSE mailinglist.
This is the first SUSE Linux that includes apt4rpm, however that feature will be “unsupported”. It should be very clear that YaST is and will be the preferred / default / supported package manager in SUSE Linux, but as people kept on requesting apt4rpm over the last few years, we finally made the decision to include it. Actually the next Beta will also include yum (I just submitted yum packages to Autobuild yesterday). If you would like to test yum just now, get the packages from http://ct.kki.org/packages/. We are working on the ftp trees to include the apt and yum metadata, thus it will be easy to use apt and yum in the future!
