What do you mean?
* every 8 months a new release?
* every month a snapshot

I meant 8 months a new release, i know that suse is not a rolling
distribution. Is this kind of cycle mandatory to be up to date for the
potentials users/customers ?

We found it convenient to have a real fixed cycle.

Fedora/Ubuntu have 6 months and considered too short while 12 months too long.

You need to update the distribution regularly for new hardware support.

Is a long term version in the oven ?

That was proposed as part of one strategy proposal. There was some people
that wanted to start a long term version but that was only in the planning
phase. There were enough interest to have it but not enough interest to do
it.
