The openSUSE Project has just announced that openSUSE 12.2 has reached end of life (EOL) and it will no longer be supported.

Like every other Linux distribution out there, there comes a time when the effort of providing support for the distribution is no longer worth it.

“With the release of the gnumeric on January 27th, 2014 the SUSE sponsored maintenance of openSUSE 12.2 has ended.”

“openSUSE 12.2 is now officially discontinued and out of support by SUSE. openSUSE 12.2 was released on September 5th 2012, making it ca. 17 months of security and bugfix support,” reads the official announcement.

According to the developers from the openSUSE Project, a number of 748 updates have been made for the distribution. From this pool of updates, 352 have been about security, 395 have been for the rest for the system, and only one was optional.

The life of openSUSE 12.2 may have come to an end, but you can always download openSUSE 13.1 from Softpedia.
