upgrading opensuse 10.0 to 10.1

Oh shit. Just upgraded one of my linux boxes on which I still have suse linux running for testing. I wonder if there will ever be a working update. Okay its well known that they somehow have "forgotten" to update the gnome-packages. So what else went wrong.

#1: If you have an nvidia/ati card you manually need to update the display driver, otherwise your X just crashes. Can't they atleast mention that in the release notes?

#2: Mozilla is just silently gone. Discovered that there is seamonkey, but it gets not installed as a replacement. wtf.

#3: Ssh-askpass was removed from my session.

#4: libtheora package is broken (all files were gone, devel package is missing).

#5: xgl is broken (was working in 10.0). xgl-settings just crash if you do not run under xgl.

I can't imagine they release without testing on live systems. But if they like to become a serious distro they realy should try harder.
