There are two kinds of application on the image: supported and unsupported.
Only the supported items are explicitly listed here.
Supported application software is software that we have intentionally installed, tested, and will do
our best to fix any problems with. It may well have local documentation. Unsupported application software has not been tested and, although it ought to work, is more likely to have problems or need to be configured. However, please report any problems and we will try to fix them.
Some of the software that exists in multiple versions can be easily
accessed by using the modules
List of supported SuSE applications
These are part of SuSE, but have been tested and possibly specially
configured for the local environment. They ought to work, and problems
with them will get a high priority for fixing.

List of third-party supported applications
These are not part of SuSE and are installed on the NFS server, which should normally
be found mounted under /usr/local/shared on the workstations. The SuSE image uses an automounter, so you may have to ls that directory to make the filesystem appear. The following list is under construction. Items on this list have been tested and problems with them will get a high priority for fixing. Click the links for details of each package.
Applications you find on your workstation that are not mentioned here may not have been tested locally. If they are part
of SuSE they ought to work, but there's a higher chance of problems. They
may get a lower priority for fixing.
