SUSE

In late April, SUSE Project Manager Andreas Jaeger announced on the openSUSE list that "Beginning with the next alpha release of openSUSE 10.3, alpha 4, ZENworks will be gone. Instead, openSUSE "will use the native tools only -- Zypper, openSUSE-updater, and YaST."

Now, Bruce Lowry, Novell Inc.'s director of PR, explains in his blog what this means for Novell's enterprise SUSE Linux operating systems.

Lowry opened by writing that, "openSUSE will now be focusing on native software management using YaST and 'zypp,' the package-management library. As a result, openSUSE 10.3 will not include the ZENworks Management Daemon."

Starting with openSUSE 10.1, the openSUSE group, with Novell's support, changed the default package management software from SUSE 9 and 10's YOU (YaST Online Update) to zypp.
