The openSUSE Project is a worldwide effort that promotes the use of Linux, tools around it, and open source. The openSUSE community is made up of multiple contributing communities that collaborate as part of a global open-source network. The openSUSE community develops, builds and maintains many of the packages, tools and infrastructure for the distribution. The community works together in an open, transparent and friendly manner as part of the global Free and Open Source Software community.
Unmatched stability for users, developers and sysadmins. Binarily compatible with SUSE Linux Enterprise
The pure rolling release that is continuously updated and thoroughly tested
A generic system for building and distributing binary packages from source
An automated test tool for operating systems and the engine at the heart of openSUSE's automated testing initiative
Designed to host container workloads with automated administration & patching
A certified Kubernetes distribution and container-related technologies built by the openSUSE community
The open-source configuration and infrastructure management solution for software-defined infrastructure
The past year has consolidated several efforts with the openSUSE Project. The community released openSUSE Leap 15.3, which is now built with the exact same binary and source packages as SUSE Linux Enterprise.
The project is expected to release the next version of Leap 15.4 in June, according to the roadmap.
The project’s flagship distribution Tumbleweed continues its rolling release pace and anticipates the merge of GNU Compiler Collection 12 in mid-spring.
The community has its annual survey at survey.opensuse.org. The open-source community is encouraged to provide feedback through the survey. The survey will run until Feb. 27.
The project has continued to have its annual conference. The call for papers for the openSUSE Conference 2022 (events.opensuse.org) is open until April 14. All members of the open-source community are encouraged to participate and submit topics related to new technologies, open source, cloud and containers, embedded devices and community leadership.
