There are two possibilities:

1) A YOU patch
2) A YaST Install & Remove-compatible supplementary update

Method (2) is how we've been kept up-to-date with the latest KDE

I think there's ample precedent to feel confident that SuSE / Novell
will provide a convenient means to go from the pre-release to the final
form of version 2.0 without involving yourself in
acquisition of an independently created set of packages and manual
installation of those packages.
