The time for the release announcement of Leap 15.1 is approaching. I was
asked to provide some list of highlights related to YaST. Some obvious
things that come to mind are:
- The sidebar with the steps of the installation process is back.
- New icons everywhere.
- Better HiDPI (4k Display) Support
- Choosing the network backend during installation with one click.
- Just click "next" to install (open)SUSE in a Raspberry Pi.
- Configuration of SSH keys during installation (password-less systems)
- Better default partitioning proposal in several scenarios (like small
disks, systems with several disks and more).
- Better management of services.
- New UI to manage Firewalld, including AutoYaST support.
- Better support for Salt formulas in yast2-configuration-management.
- Better management of SSH keys per user.
- The Partitioner can now directly format full disks, create software MD
RAIDs on top of full disks, create partitions within a software-defined
MD RAID and many others combinations. Including AutoYaST support for all
- Preliminary support for bcache in the Partitioner.
I plan to expand those bullet points to be something bigger than a
sentence (in the cases in which that makes sense), but first a wondered
whether I was overlooking something interesting for the majority of
final Leap 15.1 users.
