Latest stable evolution for openSUSE

Some people don’t upgrade software to a newer version because they find building it from sources little hard, tricky or time consuming. So here is an easy way to upgrade the evolution to latest stable versions on openSUSE 11.4.

openSUSE 11.4 comes with gnome 2.32 so is evolution. Gnome3 was released about 2 months ago and many people have started using it.

If you are still using gnome 2.32 and want to upgrade evolution to latest stable version 3.0 without upgrading whole Gnome stack here is the repository you can use:

http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/GNOME:/Evolution:/snapshot-3.0/openSUSE_11.4/

You can also use 1-Click-Install  Evolution-3.0

If you are using Gnome3, above repository will also upgrade your evolution with latest fixes in stable branch. Upgrading to evolution-3.0 will also upgrade evolution-data-server, gtk, glib and some other packages.

If you still want to stick with 2.32, but want all fixes in the respective branch, here you can get latest fixes of 2.32 branch:

http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/GNOME:/Evolution:/snapshot-2-32/openSUSE_11.4/

You can also use 1-Click-Install Evolution-2.32

OBS is a great tool which I was discovering last week and will carry on doing so. We are planing to trigger build on weekly basis. I am also working on building master (unstable) evolution and hopefully soon you will be able to use it.
