    SuSE, and other distributors, commonly preserve the version number of
    software even as they patch the versions they offer to fix
    vulnerabilities. It's a headache because it means you have to look at
    their README files and other documentation to see if they've fixed the
    vulnerabilities you're looking for.

    But apparently, it avoids breaking their package management systems.
