[suse-security] Discontinued SUSE Linux Distributions
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Wed Jun 16 20:00:00 MEST 2004
Dear suse-security-announce subscribers and SUSE LINUX users,
having provided security-relevant fixes for version 8.0 of our home user
product, SUSE Linux, for two years, we would like to inform you that SUSE
Linux 8.0 will be discontinued for all architectures. Vulnerabilities
found after June 30th 2004 will not be fixed any more for SUSE Linux
By consequence, the SUSE Linux 8.0 distribution directories on our ftp
server ftp.suse.com will be moved to the /pub/suse/discontinued/ directory
tree structure to free space after the recent availability of the new SUSE
LINUX 9.1 ftp version; the 8.0 directories in the update trees will follow
later in July/August 2004, as soon as all updates have been published.
The discontinuation of SUSE Linux 8.0 enables us to focus on the SUSE
LINUX distributions of a newer release date to ensure that our customers
can continuously take advantage of the quality that they are used to with
SUSE LINUX products.
This announcement holds true for SuSE Linux 8.0 only. As usual, SUSE
will continue to provide update packages for the following home users
SuSE Linux 8.1
SuSE Linux 8.2
SUSE LINUX 9.0
SUSE LINUX 9.1
for a two-year period after the release of the respective distribution.
Please note that the maintenance cycles of SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server
products and products based on the SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server operating
system are not affected by this announcement. To learn more about SUSE
LINUX business products, please visit
If you have any questions regarding this announcement, please do
not hesitate to contact SUSE security at <security@xxxxxxx>.
