We are happy to announce the Beta 1 of the openSUSE Build Service Version 1.5 release !
The major features of this release are: =======================================
* Product Building Support: This is biggest part and allows us to create all products, including openSUSE 11.1 and later SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 products with the openSUSE Build Service. It allows also easy Addon Product creation or customized live medias. Documentation for this is currently written and will be available later. Files which are used to describe and build products can be found already in the "_product" packages in the openSUSE:Factory and openSUSE:11.1 projects.
This functionality is intended to be used for re-spin your own builds of openSUSE !
* First Official Cross Architecture Build Support: This is currently in experimental state. The support for this was provided by 5e Datasoft and is also used for productive development by them.
* A larger number of smaller features and bug fixes, including but not limited to: - Download permission handling - Automatic download of binary packages - scheduler speed up implementations - build reason logging
Download Resources: ===================
Packages can get found as usually in the Build Service of opensuse.org itself:
