    The SLE-Leap merger is almost complete. No way to go back. Hopefully they will align on standard packages after release

      "(..)OpenSUSE Leap 15.2 also is bringing new packages for AI and data scientists, an updated DNF package manager, and many other package updates.(..)"

      since when does the suse uses dnf? it uses zypper, a vast improvement over the dnf

        It still uses zypper for default, but DNF is an option:

          It doesn't use it, just has it as a package. If someone for unknown reason needs it. It has dpkg but doesn't use it too.

            Meaning? What are "standard packages"?

              I was excited to see all the changes until I clicked on the link and saw the first one

              Leap 15.2 will use the 5.3.18 Linux Kernel.
              How come that isn't 5.4.something? Maybe I'm missing something, but wouldn't 5.4 or 4.14 be better choices over an EOL'd kernel?

                the long lead time of validating enterprise systems.

                re: DNF - there is some suggestion from suse devs that zypper is heading towards retirement in the medium term.

                  "The kernel in Leap is the same kernel used in SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 Service Pack 2. This kernel version is maintained by SUSE"

                    So one more leap release to go until native exfat and wireguard support in the kernel? I think my Comet Lake laptop needs kernel 5.4+(might have issues lower than 5.5 actually iirc), probably some other useful kernel features that don't immediately come to mind.

                    Nice to see Plasma 5.18, does leap only use LTS versions? If so, guess I'll wait until one more LTS release of plasma before considering leap, I still haven't given TW a try yet.
