openSUSE Leap 15.2 Reached End-of-Life

openSUSE Leap 15.2 reaches the end of its support after 1.5 years of life.

openSUSE Leap 15.2 was released 18 months ago (July 2, 2020) and is based on the SUSE Enterprise Linux 15 operating system family.

The openSUSE Project recommends that Leap 15.2 users should upgrade to the latest version of openSUSE Leap 15.3 as soon as possible, which will be supported by software updates and security patches until November 2022.

Those who continue to use EOL versions will be exposed to vulnerabilities because these discontinued versions no longer receive security and maintenance updates. This is why users need to upgrade to the newer minor release; openSUSE Leap 15.3!
