New image: Another flavor of GNU/Linux, OpenSuse 12.1

Özgür Bal City Cloud Leave a Comment

On our App Center we already have several flavors of GNU/Linux, including Debian, Ubuntu, Gentoo, Red Hat, Fedora Core and CentOS.

OpenSuse wasn’t there but still you could install previous versions using the provided ISO files. However, what’s the point of having a really flexible platform if you have to install the operating system yourself, every time you want to create a new server?

That question has been answered, OpenSuse 12.1 is now available on City Cloud.

OpenSuse 12.1 details

This version was released the 16th of November, 2011. Among its numerous improvements and fixes we can highlight the following:

  • GNOME Shell 3.2
  • The latest from KDE, XFCE and LXDE
  • ownCloud
  • A tool for managing btrfs snapshots: Snapper
  • Chromium 17 in the standard repository
  • Overall performance improvements
  • Many bug fixes

For a detailed list of changes and enhancements, you can peruse the official OpenSuse 12.1 portal.
