A minor release of OpenSuSE Leap 42 operating system series, openSUSE Leap 42.2 was released on November 16, 2016, and was based on the SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 Service Pack 2 operating system. The release was powered by the long-term supported Linux 4.4 kernel and KDE Plasma 5.8 desktop environment, besides numerous other new GNU/Linux and Open Source technologies. As all good things must come to an end, so is the openSUSE Leap 42.2 point release, which reached end of life on January 26, 2018, meaning that users won't be able to update their installations after this date, which will render their PCs vulnerable to all sort of attacks. Therefore, it is recommended to upgrade to a newer openSUSE Leap release or to the openSUSE Tumbleweed rolling release.
