we are pleased to announce the new releases of OBS Light (0.5.3).
This new version allows to work on packages hosted on OpenSUSE OBS.

OBS Light provides a GUI and a command line mode to work on packages hosted on
an OBS or a FakeOBS.
It does offer to the developer the capability to work directly in the chroot,
to re-run each phases of the spec file at will, while creating and committing
OBS compatible patches when required.

OBS Light was originally developed for MeeGo and Tizen but the latest change
allows OpenSUSE users to benefit from the toolset and while we consider the
support of OpenSUSE in Beta stage, we think that it would ease everyday work
and we would love to get non embedded users's feedback.

OBS Light client now also creates repositories where your locally built
packages are published. These local repo can be used to create image
with Mic (which is integrated in the GUI) or to download the custom packages
directly on your target with zypper or yum.
