SUSE Security announces that the SUSE Security Team will stop releasing updates for openSUSE 11.1 soon. Having provided security-relevant fixes for the last two years, we will stop releasing updates after December 31st 2010.
As a consequence, the openSUSE 11.1 distribution directory on our server download.opensuse.org will be removed from /distribution/11.1/ to free space on our mirror sites. The 11.1 directory in the update tree /update/11.1 will follow, as soon as all updates have been published. Also the openSUSE buildservice repositories building openSUSE 11.1 will be removed.
The discontinuation of openSUSE 11.1 enables us to focus on the openSUSE distributions of a newer release dates to ensure that our users can continuously take advantage of the quality that they are used to with openSUSE products.
This announcement holds true for openSUSE 11.1 only. As usual, the openSUSE project will continue to provide update packages for the following products:
openSUSE 11.2 (supported until approximately May 12th 2011)
openSUSE 11.3 (supported until approximately Jan 15th 2012)
openSUSE 11.4 (currently in development, to be released in March 2011)
for the next two openSUSE releases plus two months overlap period.
