Announcing Tumbleweed Snapshots

Post Syndicated from corbet original

The newly announced openSUSE “Tumbleweed snapshots” feature is an attempt to make
rolling distributions a little easier for those who don’t want to stay on
the leading edge all the time. In essence, it keeps a snapshot of the
state of the distribution at regular intervals and enables users to install
applications from their particular snapshot. That allows the installation
of new applications without the need to drag in everything else that may
have changed since the system as a whole was updated.
Tumbleweed Snapshots
provides the best of both worlds, the latest packages when you want them and the
one package you need in the middle of working on a project.
