Maintenance for openSUSE 11.0 extended

July 5th, 2010 by
openSUSE 11.0 was released on 19th of June 2008 and was planned to be under security maintenance for two years. Upon multiple requests from the community, the SUSE Security and Maintenance Team has decided to extend the maintenance period of openSUSE 11.0 until openSUSE 11.3 release, which is scheduled for July 15th 2010.
We will stop handling new requests at that day and plan to finish with the last update on July 21st 2010 to assure that openSUSE 11.0 users have a smooth upgrade path to openSUSE 11.3. Special thanks to Dirk Mueller who innitiated this.

    This is so nice! Thank you for doing the extra work. That helps a lot.

    Well thanks for this although, unless KDE 3.5 is bundled as an option for upgrades beyond 11.0 I shall not be upgrading. KDE 4.xx is a very poor implementation and breaks many things. The upgrade of KDE office likewise, with most of the useful filters dropped, it ceased to be useable when I upgraded to 11.2. I have reverted to 11.0 and intend to stay here if “upgrading” means that I can no longer usefully work.

  4. Nice one, my primary server is stiil running 11.0, with this i can upgrade to 11.3.
    Big thx!

    I keep on using KDE 3.5 as long as possible! (openSUSE 11.1)

    sure you are joking, evolve… is 2010 today. try to update your knowledge and stop complaining that in the new version copy/paste have different icons… in terms of functionality kde 4.4 has all the things needed for usage in 2010…

    Yes functionality is there, when it doesn’t crash, and if it doesn’t, it’s half the speed.

    Actually openSUSE 11.1 “was” the last version with KDE 3.5. So you do have a more recent upgrade path.

    There are several KDE 3 places forming… so I expect there will be a way to have KDE 3… but like you said, not necessarily fully supported.

    Personally, I’d bite the bullet and try out KDE 4.4.4

    It’s not horrible… but obviously DIFFERENT. And there are some things that are gone and likely NOT to return that were very useful (sad, but true). I don’t think preserving KDE 3 is the answer though.. however, a desktop environment with all of the KDE 3 features would be ok… just needs to be contemporary so it can take advantage of the fundamental changes made for all DEs out there.

    Stop making false claims and excuses about KDE4. If you don’t like it, that’s fine, but don’t blatantly spread lies to advance your point. Half speed? Crashes? Right…
