OpenSUSE 42.3 was released on Wednesday

I’m a couple of days late to the party.  I had intended to post on Wednesday, but our refrigerator broke so I had more urgent concerns.

The release itself went quite smoothly.  I have not tried to install with the final installer.  But I have installed some of the pre-release versions.  And those went very well.  Most people seem to be installing without problems.

Leap 42.3 is only a relatively small change from 42.2.  It is still at Plasma 5 version 5.8.7.  As I recall, 42.2 was released as Plasma 5.8.2 or 5.8.3, and later updates brought it to 5.8.7.
