    Hi everybody,

    Hi
    Nothing, Current links to the latest snapshot, AFAIK it's a link so used at the download page it will always download the latest snapshot, else they would have to update the page on every snapshot release...

    See here: https://software.opensuse.org/distributions/tumbleweed

    It links to the 'current' iso image.

    It's exactly like that. To elaborate: TW is released over and over again. A bunch of updates come in from upstream, packages get automagically rebuilt, openqa drops in and tests, new image gets released. Completely different from how Gentoo and Arch do it, but I love the openqa step in the whole cycle.

    I've found that "current" is the regular TW release,
    And "snapshot" is an intermediate release, sometimes daily.

    Awhile back,
    There was something I was looking for that I understood was built a day after a TW release that I really wanted, and found it in the snapshot.
