openSUSE 11.2 to reach end of life in May
The openSUSE Project developers have announced that version 11.2 of their popular Linux distribution will reach its end of life in May of this year. According to the SUSE Security Team, after 12 May, no new updates, including security updates and critical fixes, will be available.
Following its discontinuation, the 11.2 distribution directory, including all of the installation ISOs, will be removed from the project's servers and the openSUSE Build Service repositories for building openSUSE 11.2 will moved to "discontinued". The developers strongly advise all openSUSE 11.2 users to upgrade to version 11.3 or later to continue receiving updates.
Releases of openSUSE are typically supported for two years. Version 11.3 of openSUSE will be supported until 15 January 2012 and openSUSE 11.4 will receive support until 15 September 2012. The latest stable release is openSUSE 11.4 from earlier this month. The next version of openSUSE, currently referred to as openSUSE Next, has yet to be named and is scheduled to arrive in November 2011.
