Written by Michael Larabel in SUSE on 6 June 2023 at 09:30 AM EDT. 19 Comments
The soon-to-be-released openSUSE Leap 15.5 was going to be the last of the openSUSE Leap 15 series, but now openSUSE/SUSE has decided there will be an openSUSE Leap 15.6 release to allow additional time for their Adaptable Linux Platform (ALP) to be developed.

It's been determined that there will be an openSUSE Leap 15.6 release and is expected to be released in early June 2024 and to go EOL by end of year 2025. In turn this will allow significantly more time for their ALP-based successor to openSUSE Leap 15 to be developed. As with the prior point releases, openSUSE Leap 15.6 will be a relatively minor update over the imminent Leap 15.5 release.

More details on the decision to go ahead with an openSUSE Leap 15.6 cycle can be found on OpenSUSE Leap 15.5 is expected for release tomorrow, 7 June.
