The openSUSE Project announced the overall availability of the openSUSE Leap 42.2 operating system.
Essentially it is a Service Pack, the second important update for openSUSE Leap 42 of an open-source and free distribution. OpenSUSE Leap 42.2 is in progress in the last six months. The update brings many new features to openSUSE, some of which users of the rolling Tumbleweed have already.
In this version, openSUSE Project chose to use the Linux 4.4 long-term support core, providing users with a safer, more reliable and more stable platform that can easily be installed in too many production environments, including but not limited to in cloud infrastructures, virtual machines, and organizations.
