openSUSE 15.4 (Leap) Alpha

The openSUSE team has announced the availability of a new development snapshot for openSUSE Leap. The new snapshot is labeled openSUSE 15.4 Alpha.

The fourth minor release of Leap 15 has entered its alpha development stage. During the Alpha phase, regular Alpha images will be built on a rolling basis until mid-February, when the point release is scheduled to transition to a Beta build phase. The beta submission deadline is February 16, according to the roadmap. The Beta phase has a similar model until the General Availability of the release. The rolling builds stop after the Beta phase is complete, and Leap transitions into a maintenance and security update phase upon becoming publicly available." Additional information can be found in the project’s release announcement.
