openSUSE Leap 42.3 has reached end of SUSE support

Marcus Meissner
Hi all,

With the release of release-notes-openSUSE on July 1st, 2019 the SUSE
sponsored maintenance of openSUSE Leap 42.3 has ended.

openSUSE Leap 42.3 is now officially discontinued and out of support by
SUSE.

The currently maintained stable release are openSUSE Leap 15.0 and 15.1, which
will be maintained until Nov 2019 / Nov 2020. See https://en.opensuse.org/Lifetime

Upgrading is easy. See the links below for instructions:

https://doc.opensuse.org/documentation/leap/startup/html/book.opensuse.startup/cha.update.osuse.html
https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:System_upgrade
https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Offline_upgrade

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
Leap 15.

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).

Agenda: current number (42.2 number / total diff / weighted diff 14/24)

Total updates: 1734 (1286 / +448 / -275)
Updates imported from SUSE Linux Enterprise: 994 (648 / +146 / -70)
Updates provided by community developers: 740 (638 / +102 / -207)
Security: 901 (569 / + 332 / -44)
Recommended: 794 (677 / +114 / -216)
Optional: 37 (39 / -2 / -18)
Feature: 2 (1 / +1 / +1)

Fixed CVE-entries: 3181 (2239  / +942 / -384)
Fixed Bugs (overall): 5355 (3887 / +1468 / -764)

A huge thanks to our awesome packagers, community, and all involved
people, who made the next great release possible!
