openSUSE Leap 42.3 Linux Distro Up to RC State, Final Release Lands End of July

According to the roadmap, openSUSE Leap 42.3 was supposed to enter Release Candidate phase today, June 6, 2017, and the latest snapshot that will soon be released for public testing appears to equate to the RC version. But it looks like there’s little interest from the community for testing the upcoming openSUSE Leap 42.3 operating system, possibly because of the new rolling development process. Later this month, on June 25, 2017, the openSUSE Leap 42.3 operating system will enter the package freeze stage of development, which means that only bug fixes will be included from that point onward. But the openSUSE devs want you to download the latest openSUSE Leap 42.3 snapshot, install it on their personal computers, and report as many bugs and issues are possible if they encounter any.
