    Hi
    If it's so important to have 2.4.3, you can download the source and
    build your own.

    In other words, OpenSuse11 will not change the version of any package.

    Why?

    Because this would break production systems in the near future.

    If it cames with apache_2.21 (just guessing) it will use apache_2.21 till the end. Only fixes for this version will be put to update apache (apache_2.21-01, 2.21-02, etc...).

    And honestly, this is wonderfull!


    cheers

    What!!! I was under the impression that they did eventually put newer versions of apps in the repos.

    And if what is above is true, suse 11 has 2.4.1 and the new one is 2.4.3. So that is a .. release so then they would update it???

    In OpenSuse12 I guess.

    Or, I think you can use the Build Service. Probably in there some body soon will put a rpm for the new pidgin's release.

    I would like to do it, but I'm stucked in MacOS...

    This thing of not change versions on a OpenSuse Release is great!!! If they change the version of the apps some simple update would be able to crash some production applications that uses features of some especific version of some software. Capice?

    Cheers

    I bet libpurple and/or pidgin will be updated soon. If this does not happen the broken ICQ support will be a no go for using opensuse anymore.

    I would call this problem critical. So fast update seems reasonable.

    OpenSUSE 11.0 comes with a stable set of repositories. These are frozen with a certain revision of each piece of openSUSE software and will never change. The only exception to this are security updates, which are released using the opensuse-updater program in your system tray. If the package was updated but did not contain a security update, it will not appear in YaST or the opensuse-updater program by default.

    If you want to update any piece of software to a newer version and it's not being updated in the OSS, NON-OSS, or UPDATES repository, you'll need to add new repositories for yourself.

    See:
