With the release of openSUSE 11.2 Milestone 8, we have new images
ready for you to test based on this latest release.
M8 is last milestone before RCs(Release Candidates) start. Some of the
highlights of new kiwi-ltsp images are:
* The image uses new clicfs in place of squashfs+aufs that were used on 11.1.
* Firefox, IceWM, xterm and now ekiga available as ltsp-localapps out of the box
* Graphical boot loader, thanks to Alkisg for tip :)
* CONFIGURE_X no longer required
To try this new image on currently running server:
mv /srv/kiwi-ltsp /srv/kiwi-ltsp-backup
mv /srv/tftpboot/boot /srv/tftpboot/boot.backup
mv /srv/tftpboot/KIWI/lts.conf /srv/tftpboot/lts.conf.backup

Boot up the thin clients.
Another major announcement is the new home for kiwi-ltsp, we have now
moved to launchpad as novell forge is shutting down.
To get the code from launchpad:
bzr branch lp:kiwi-ltsp
I am yet to figure out if launchpad does mailing lists to migrate both
the lists we have on Novell forge.
All the bugs and feature requests now goes on launchpad :).
Looking forward to your testings and bug/feature requests.
