The openSUSE Leap 15.4 Beta was released on 2 March 2022. Users can test the beta distribution to hunt and report bugs. The final release of Leap 15.4 is scheduled for 8 June 2022.
I tested the Leap 15.4 Beta GNOME Desktop today on a Lenovo ThinkPad X250. The installation went through without any hiccup and I documented every step of the installation in a Twitter thread.
One thing that I noticed was new in the installer is the icon to change the color theme during installation. This was not present when I tested the Leap 15.4 Alpha distribution.
On the top-right corner of the installer there is a moon icon which can be clicked to select a different theme for the installer. Five themes are available which contain three dark and two light variants.
The default theme is set to the
installation.qss style sheet.
white-black are dark themes while
style are light themes.
I took the above screenshots using the Leap 15.4 Beta image on VirtualBox to get clear images. In the Twitter thread I took pictures of the installation process and the theme selection on a laptop.

In either installation I did not encounter any bug while setting up GNOME Desktop with defaults.
