The release candidate for openSUSE Leap 15.3 is now available for testing.

openSUSE Leap 15.3 Enters Release Candidate Phase

The  openSUSE Project and its community, contributors and release engineers have entered the Release Candidate phase for the upcoming  openSUSE Leap 15.3 version today after a snapshot was released, which transitions the release to a new phase.

The RC signals the package freeze for software that will make it into the distribution, which is used on server, workstation, desktop and for virtualization and container use.

openSUSE Leap offers a clear advantage for servers by providing at least 18 months of updates for each release. There is a projection as of April 2021 that Leap 15 will extend to Leap 15.5. Leap Major Release (15.x) extends maintenance and support until a successor. At present, a successor has not been declared; Leap 15’s lifecycle fully aligns with  SUSE Linux Enterprise and uses the source code and Leap is built with the exact same binary packages..
