    The probably best answer to this question is: no.

    What is 'safe'?

    Something tested is a bit safer.

    openSUSE will be maintained.

    There will be updates.

    Even if you would manage to get plasma-nm running,
    for sure there will be no automated updates for it.
    It isn't a part of openSUSE - and other major Linux distros either, as it seems.

    So you will be on your own, without any 'safe' way.

    That's my best guess.

    Good luck

    i change my questions .

    is there someone who experimented plasma-nm 0.9.3 with 13.1 ?

    what is a good method to switch to plasma-nm ?

    you say "It isn't a part of openSUSE", "there will be no automated updates" . Are you sure ?

    in yast software manager i see that opensuse supplies plasma-nm 0.9.3.1 2013 10 18 from source "opensuse-13.1-oss" and plasma-nm 0.9.3.2 2013 11 28 from source "opensuse-13.1-update" .
