Difference between OpenSUSE stable kernels

I’m wondering what the stable kernel is for opensuse 11.4 kde because I ran an update and I’m at 2.6.37~ and I remember Ubuntu is at ; is the kernel considered unstable is that why opensuse is not using it yet?

I just started using opensuse KDE and I haven’t used other distros/linux so thats why I’m asking.

In 11.4 it is currently

And it will not change from 2.6.37 in the 11.4 release. You can use a newer kernel, from a repo that supplies it, but I don’t advise it.
Ubuntu’s latest release is newer than openSUSE and our release cycle here is longer, hence the difference.
In most cases it’s not really that important.
