1. YaST Workshop 2008
---------------------
...is taking place in Nuremberg, June 30 to July 4. This time we are not going to see any boring presentations [1] followed by another boring discussion [1], we re going to *have fun* working on projects we always wanted to work on [2]. Current projects are available at YaST Research [3] page but the list is not closed as everyone can add their own project.

2. YaST Style Guide
-------------------
Again it's right time to mention our future YaST Style Guide [4]. It's not yet finished but the final 'File->Save' is near. See also bug 398478 [5].

3. Work Recently Done
---------------------
There were several YaST-SVN commits here and there fixing some minor issues or adding or polishing functionality.

4. YaST Documentation
---------------------
Finally the YaST Documentation for openSUSE 11.0 [6] has been uploaded at Forge as usually [7].

5. AppArmor
-----------
Several YaST/AppArmor-utils bugs have been fixed. Special thanks to jreidinger who took this challenge as an opportunity to learn more about YaST itself and created his first patches to YaST.

6. New Package Bindings & Some Changed
--------------------------------------
New Package bindings functions have been added: Pkg::GetArchitecture(), Pkg::SetArchitecture(), and Pkg::SystemArchitecture().
Pkg::SourceFinishAll() now works differently [8].

7. SuSEFirewall Services
------------------------
Internal definitions of firewall services have been dropped from YaST [9] and replaced with "Service Definitions Added via Packages" [10].

8. Blogs
--------
Some of us are still blogless. At least, someone has time to read others' blogs [1]. Martin Vidner was blogging about Jiri Suchomel's idea [11] of linking some "real code" from our documentation. Michal Zugec was blogging about IPv6 in YaST [12] and Running YaST (python) in debugger [13].
