    Yes I meant release, so I guess twice a year? Are you able to upgrade to the new release or is a clean install neccessary?

    Upgrade is possible though I rarely even try that. If you plan an upgrade - leave it a month or so from release. The complication with Upgrade is all your 3rd Party applications (eg;Packman). But I have done it on test machines, change all the repo's to the new version, drop to level 3 CLI and run zypper dup.
    But for me - I would just do a new install, keep /home (or back it up). I can have everything back to normal in about a hour.

    Upgrading using zypper dup is not officially supported yet.

    I believe an objective for the final release of 11.2 (november) is to fully support version upgrading.
