Die Fangemeinde von leap 42.x ist wohl groß genug, dass Opensuse den Supportzeitraum für die 42.3 um 1/2 Jahr verlängert
The last minor version of the Leap 42 series was scheduled to be maintained until January 2019, but that has changed thanks to SUSE committing to additional months of maintenance and security updates. Leap 42.3 is based on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 Service Pack (SP) 3 and SUSE has agreed to keep publishing updates for Leap 42.3 until June 2019.This means the extended End of Life for Leap 42.3 will increase the total lifetime of the Leap 42 series to 44 months.
Also .. Leap 42.3 lebt noch bis Juni 2019!
