SUSE Gallery launch

We're proud to announce that SUSE Gallery is now available to all Studio users! That's right, it's finally out of beta and you no longer need to opt-in to access it.

SUSE Gallery now has its own domain at susegallery.com. This will be the destination site for users who want to find an existing appliance that they can download and use immediately. It is tightly integrated with SUSE Studio, so you can still easily customize the appliances if you want to do so.

Both SUSE Studio and Gallery share the same login, so you only need to sign in once to access both sites. Once you're signed in, you can easily switch between both sites via the "Gallery" and "Studio" links in the user navigation bar at the top of the page.

For details on how you can share your appliance with SUSE Gallery, please refer to our previous blog post. You can skip the section on "Enabling SUSE Gallery" since that is not longer required. We hope you enjoying using SUSE Gallery as much as we do!

Plans for openSUSE 11.3 support

openSUSE 11.3 will be released tomorrow, and some of you have already asked when you will be able to build openSUSE 11.3 based appliances in SUSE Studio. In SUSE Studio we try to always support the latest version of openSUSE, so right now we are working on the adaptations needed to support 11.3 builds. It won't be ready at release day, but we hope to be able to add it within the next two or three weeks.

You might already know the feature to upgrade an appliance from an older openSUSE version to the latest one from older openSUSE appliances. We will also add this for the transition from version 11.2 to 11.3, so don't worry about going with openSUSE 11.2 as a base system for now. You will be able to upgrade your appliance to openSUSE 11.3 with a simple click of your mouse later.

Have a lot of fun with openSUSE 11.3 for now. We'll let you know as soon as it will be available in SUSE Studio as well.
