got a completely new face which improves the downloading
of the desired openSUSE distribution a lot. It comes with the new look and
feel following of www.opensuse.org
Additionally we got a really easy-to-use software search and installation
interface< there as well:
The search is part of the openSUSE Build Service, which allows features like
limitation of search results to a given base distribution. This does work
also for Fedora, Mandriva, Debian and Ubuntu distributions, beside the
openSUSE and SUSE Linux Enterprise distributions.
The interface provides also a very easy installation featuring the One-Click
Installation YaST module of Benjamin Weber. This means the installation of
any package can be started by a single click. YaST will show which
repositories are used and which packages will be installed; the dependency
solving is also all done automatically by YaST. There is no need to do these
steps manually anymore.
Even complete software stacks are installable via that feature, if the
openSUSE Build Service packager provided a package list in his project.
infrastructure is available under an open source license (the
Build Serivce is under GPL). So feel free to use it also in your company or
university or join the development of it.
We do still have lot's of plans how to extend also software.opensuse.org
to find out more about it and our future plans.
