SUSE Security announces that SUSE Linux 10.0 will be discontinued soon. Having provided security-relevant fixes for more than two years, vulnerabilities found in SUSE Linux 10.0 after November 15th 2007 will not be fixed any more for this product. Expect the last updates around November 30th 2007.
Please do not confuse SUSE Linux 10.0 with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10, these are two different products.
As a consequence, the SUSE Linux 10.0 distribution directory on our ftp server ftp.suse.com will be moved from /pub/suse/10.0/ to the /pub/suse/discontinued/ directory tree structure to free space on our mirror sites. The 10.0 directory in the update tree /pub/suse/update/10.0 will follow, as soon as all updates have been published.
The discontinuation of SUSE Linux 10.0 enables us to focus on the SUSE Linux and openSUSE distributions of a newer release dates to ensure that our customers can continuously take advantage of the quality that they are used to with SUSE Linux products.
This announcement holds true for SUSE Linux 10.0 only. As usual, SUSE will continue to provide update packages for the following products:
SUSE Linux 10.1
openSUSE 10.3 (currently in development)
for a two-year period after the release of the respective distribution.
Please note that the maintenance cycles of SUSE Linux Enterprise products and products based on the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server operating system are not affected by this announcement and have longer life cycles.
