  • From: Adrian Schröter <adrian@xxxxxxx>

  • Message-id: <201004211611.46721.adrian@xxxxxxx>

The Build Service Team is proud to release the version 1.7.3 of OBS.

It is recommended to update to this version for everybody who is running
an own OBS instance.

Instances which re-use resources from instance are
*required* to update to support the new required "rpm-md-legacy" repository
mode. Publishing repositories for older distributions will fail otherwise.

Download Resources

You can as usual get the OBS Appliance here:

Packages in openSUSE:Tools project:

And sources in 1.7 branch:

Thanks a lot to all who have provided code and feedback.

Release Notes

Updaters from 1.7 release can just update the packages and restart
all services.

Updaters from earlier releases require manual steps afterwards,
please check the README.UPDATERS file for details.
