Customers using Leap 42.3 workloads can also consider migrate to SUSE
Linux Enterprise 12 SP4 if they are not able to upgrade to openSUSE
openSUSE Leap 42.3 was released in July 2017, making it 24 months of
security and bugfix support.
It was the third hybrid distribution which used sources from SUSE Linux
Enterprise and from our community developers to bridge a gap between
matured packages and newer packages found in openSUSE Tumbleweed.
Some statistics on the released patches (compared to Leap 42.2),
(reminder that 42.2 had 14 months of support runtime, while leap 42.3 had 24).
