During the lifetime of a release you will receive:

  • security updates for all included packages
  • critical bugfix updates (usually these are found & fixed in the first few months of its lifetime)

A discontinuation announcement will be sent to the opensuse-security-announce and opensuse-announce mailing lists some time before.

Supported distributions

The following distributions are expected to receive updates until the specified date:

  • openSUSE 11.3 - January 15th 2012 which is in -4531 days (2 months after release of 11.5)
  • openSUSE 11.2 - May 12th 2011 which is in -4779 days (2 months after release of 11.4)
  • openSUSE 11.1 - December 31st 2010 which is in -4911 days.

Discontinued distributions

Users running a (soon-to-be) discontinued version of openSUSE should upgrade their systems to a supported release to receive security updates and community support. Since eventually package repositories for discontinued releases are be removed from download servers as well as the build target list of the Build Service it will be increasingly difficult to install new software on such distributions.
