The startup manual mentions KNetworkManager, we use now a new Plasma Network applet.

I think there is a bit of a confusion about how this applet and the corresponding software (package) is or should be called.

Compare e. g.:

1)
http://software.opensuse.org/search?q=networkmanager-kde4&baseproject=openSUSE%3AFactory

"
NetworkManager-kde4 " in KDE:Distro:Factory/openSUSE_Factory

" KNetworkManager is a KDE 4 applet for controlling network connections on systems that use the NetworkManager service."

2)
http://userbase.kde.org/NetworkManagement

"
User Clients

KNetworkManager applet for KDE 4, Network Management Plasmoid under KDE 4, KNetworkManager under KDE 3, nm-applet under GNOME, and cnetworkmanager is your last life. These are responsible for [...]"

3)
http://www.novell.com/documentation/opensuse113/book_opensuse_startup/?page=/documentation/opensuse113/book_opensuse_startup/data/cha_nm.html#cha_nm

"5.4
Using KNetworkManager

The KDE front-end for NetworkManager is the KNetworkManager applet. If the network has been set up for NetworkManager control, the applet usually starts automatically with the desktop environment and is shown as an icon in the system tray.[...]"

We use LibreOffice instead of OpenOffice.org

Remove any beagle documentation, we have now tracker for GNOME and strigi for KDE.

This includes kerry as well.

I agree!

A month a new user,ask what is need to "control" openSUSE/Linux, and the best manuals are sold by big corporatives, we need a "open" Manual, to our "open" openSUSE Linux!

The manuals are
already open ! :-) We moved our openSUSE manuals to the BerliOS SVN some time ago.

Find the source code of our manuals here:

Hope you like it!

openSUSE is amazing, I will translate to portuguese, really thanks!!

This would be nice! :-) We have already Russian, Hungarian, and Japanese. You can get in contact with us at the opensuse-doc@opensuse.org mailinglist for more details. :)

Great idea to go right through the user manual and offer a quick start guide.
One of my issues about the user manual is that the download link sits at the bottom of the download page and is off screen.
My suggestion is that we put a Down-load Link Picture next to the version selection for download, so people can see it - Many for the first time!
I would also suggest we put a hit counter behind the User Manual.

There is plenty of room on our standard software download page - please stop hiding it screen at the bottom of the download page

Well, but this is not an issue with the manuals itself. It's just the presentation of how they appear.
I think, this is out of scope for _this_ FATE request. Therefor, I've created a separate bug report, see https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=660475

Feel free to improve it. :-)

AppArmor was updated to 2.5.1 (instead of 2.3.1 in 11.3)

I think the URLs are wrong now:
The document under
Start-Up (Publication Date 09 Mar 2011)
http://doc.opensuse.org/products/opensuse/openSUSE_113/opensuse-startup
is probably just the actual (Startup for 11.4).
Under "Start-Up" with
http://doc.opensuse.org/products/opensuse/openSUSE_114/opensuse-startup seems to be now what in 11.3 was devided in
in
GNOME User Guide
http://doc.opensuse.org/products/opensuse/openSUSE_113/opensuse-gnomeuser/
and
KDE User Guide
http://doc.opensuse.org/products/opensuse/openSUSE_113/opensuse-kdeuser/ .
I would think hat naming it "User Guide" or "KDE/GNOME User Guide" would make sense.
