    Default Version number misreported?

    I run zypper up regularly against the 4.3 repo,
    and supposedly the latest stable version is 4.3.5.
    However, after the latest update I am still showing 4.3.4r2.
    Any ideas why this is?

    Use the forum-search to find out about the confusing management of KDE4-repos these days. The KDE:KDE43-repository is dead, take the "stable"-repo instead (to upgrade to 4.3.5) or the respective "Factory"-repo to upgrade to 4.4.

    FWIW, I made the change to STABLE, ran zypper up and it said, Nothing to do.
    LOL. Apparently I'm stuck with it saying 4.3.4r2.

    Change to the Factory_Desktop repos, 4.4.0 is in there, it's impressive.

    'zypper up' will only upgrade packages without accepting vendor-changes. If you want to upgrade all packages to the latest versions no matter what repository, type

    Code:
    zypper dup

    I ment if there is official announcement of the kde4.3 repo's being
    discontinued, or is just gossip on the forum?
    Because i received updates from this repo this week.

    It was → announced officially in the german YaST-wiki, for some reason I can't find that paragraph in the english wiki.

    German original:

    Projekt KDE 4.3 (KDE 4.3.4 → berflssig)

    Information Ein Upgrade der in der openSUSE 11.2 enthaltenen KDE 4.3.1 Arbeitsumgebung ist ber den hier beschriebenen Weg nicht mehr ntig. Pakete des KDE 4.3 Depots bzw des aktuellen KDE 4.3.5 Desktops sind nun im Stabilen Zweig enthalten und werden ber KDE4:/STABLE:/-Depots bzw Standard Pakete ber das OS-Update -Depots angeboten. [...]
    English:

    Project KDE 4.3 (KDE 4.3.4 → redundant)

    Information An upgrade of KDE 4.3.1, which is included in openSUSE 11.2, as described here is not necessary anymore. Packages of the KDE 4.3 repository / the current 4.3.5 desptop are now included in the stable branch and will be updated via the KDE4:/STABLE:/-repositories and the OS-update-repository. [...]
