On top of that, Leap 15 introduces a system role selection with classic \u201cserver\u201d or \u201ctransactional server\u201d role with transactional updates and a read-only root file system. This brings in all the benefits of atomic updates to the full scope of deployments, from the Internet of Things (IoT) and embedded devices to classical server and desktop roles. Apart from that, Leap 15 has been continually optimized for cloud usage scenarios as virtualization guest and at the same time offers a great variety of desktops, including KDE and GNOME and features the return of Live images for simple test-driving.\n\n==== New Look, closely aligned with SLE ====\nWith a brand new look developed by the community, openSUSE Leap 15 brings plenty of community packages built on top of a core from [https://www.suse.com/products/server/ SUSE Linux Enterprise] (SLE) 15 sources, with the two major releases being built in parallel from the beginning for the first time. Leap 15 shares a common core with SLE 15, which is due for release in the coming months. The first release of Leap was version 42.1, and it was based on the first Service Pack (SP1) of SLE 12. Three years later SUSE\u2019s enterprise version and openSUSE\u2019s community version are now aligned at 15 with a fresh rebase.\n\n\u201cHaving a community distribution that shares a common DNA with enterprise is the smart way to interact with the open-source ecosystem,\u201d said Kai Dupke, long-time openSUSE user and senior product manager for SUSE Linux Enterprise 15. \u201cLeap provides great flexibility and freedom of choice for developers and users.\u201d\n\n==== Migration to Enterprise made easy ====\nConsequently, for the first time, SUSE will support migration from openSUSE Leap server installations to SUSE Linux Enterprise, which makes it easy for system integrators to develop on Leap code and later move to an enterprise version for SLAs, certification, mass deployment, or extended Long Term Support.\n\n\u201cUpgrading to a commercial product can be complex for developers wanting to migrate a solution from a community Linux distribution to an enterprise distribution\u201d, Dupke explains. \u201cWith Leap 15  SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15, that journey is made easy. We know that the community is where the innovations happen, and Leap community developers now can easily broaden that scope into enterprise Linux, if needed. Leap 15 is offering the quickest and most flexible transition to enterprise service, support and maintenance.\u201d\n\n==== OBS, OpenQA: Better Tested, More Secure and More Open than Others ====\nUsing the [https://build.opensuse.org/ Open Build Service] and [https://openqa.opensuse.org/ openQA], openSUSE Leap has become the best and most tested Linux distribution, and it is built differently than any other distribution, using a much more secure development model than competitors.\n\nThe community distribution with its enterprise base system is developed in cooperation with SUSE developers using open source and openSUSE tools like the [https://build.opensuse.org/ Open Build Service] and [http://open.qa/ openQA], which have run [https://www.suse.com/c/celebrate-openqa-one-million-reasons-believe-testing/ more than a million test runs].\n\nThe vibrant developer community, the availability of the open-source tools and the distribution alignment between Leap and SLE make it easy for developers to contribute to Leap and further drive technological innovations and open-source solutions.\n\n==== All Standard and Some New Services for Networks ====\nFor all existing Leap users seamless updates to Leap 15 are available. Any migration is recommended to take place within the next six months. Like prior versions, System Administrators and small businesses can use Leap for hosting web and mail servers or for network management with DHCP, DNS, NTP, Samba, NFS, LDAP, and hundreds of other services.\n\nFile sharing and cloud services include software such as [https://nextcloud.com/ NextCloud] and even the groupware application suite [https://kopano.com/ Kopano] (formerly known as Zarafa) is part of the official Leap 15 repositories.\n\n==== New Installer and Partitioner, Moving to Firewalld ====\nLeap 15 further improves one of openSUSE\u2019s most powerful tools YaST. For example, the partitioner\u2019s Libstorage-ng subsystem has been reworked, making it more powerful and reliable and taking ease-of-use to a new level. The same applies for the move from SuSEfirewall2 to the widely used firewall management tool Firewalld which provides better integration with dynamic network setups.\n\nAdministrators in need of mass deployments e.g. in cloud solutions will find helpful improvements in AutoYaST. Its profiles contain installation and configuration data to simplify unattended installations. The new AutoYaST version benefits from cleaned-up profiles, extended documentation and now supports the new partitioning features of libstorage-ng.\n\n==== Images, Deployment and Hardware with Linode and Tuxedo ====\nToday\u2019s public release of Leap 15 aren\u2019t only released as DVD and Network ISO: Linode and hardware vendor TUXEDO Computers have cloud images through of Leap ready, too. While the brand new TUXEDO InfinityBook Pro 13 is immediately available with Leap 15 preinstalled and ready-to-run, Linode has Leap available for all infrastructure needs. And there are more cloud images and hardware providers that will provide Leap 15 in the coming weeks, pre-installed or deployable.\n\n==== Atomic Updates by Kubic: Additional building blocks for professionals ====\nThis release has a system role selection that offers a classic server role and a Transactional Server role. Contributed by openSUSE\u2019s container platform project [[Kubic]], this role uses transactional updates and a Read-Only Root Filesystem to provide Leap with all the benefits of atomic updates in a multitude of use cases, including container hosts, Internet of Things (IoT), and classic server functions with potential future applications also involving desktops.\n\n==== Built to Scale ====\nopenSUSE Leap is also excellently suited and prepared for usage as a Virtual Machine (VM) or container guest, allowing professional users to efficiently run network services no matter whether it\u2019s a single server or a data center.\n[[File:Built-to-scale.png|thumb]]\n\n==== Any Desktop and Live Images available ====\nUsers of openSUSE Leap can choose their favorite desktop environment, configuration and setup. The [[GNOME]] version in Leap is the same as the version used in SLE 15, now using [https://wayland.freedesktop.org/ Wayland] by default. [https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Builder GNOME Builder] is available for Leap for the first time, allowing easy development for [https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects GNOME Projects]. [[KDE]] and the latest Plasma 5.12 Long-Term-Support version are also available for SLE 15 through [https://packagehub.suse.com/ PackageHub], including all its community supported tools and applications. Leap offers the return of [https://download.opensuse.org/distribution/leap/15.0/live/ Live Images] for those mentioned above.\n\n==== Health and Science ====\nThe Leap distribution supports the health, science, research and developer communities with packages like [http://health.gnu.org/ GNU Health], which can help facilitate running the operations of a hospital and collecting vital patient data, and [https://www.qgis.org/ QGIS], which allows researchers to create, edit, visualize, analyze and publish geospatial information.\n\n==== Platforms ====\nLeap works with X86_64 and deployment scenarios can be run for physical, virtual, host and guest, and cloud. Ports to other architectures like [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ARM_architecture ARM64] and [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_Architecture POWER] are in the works by the community.\n\nMaintenance and security updates for the Leap 15 series are expected to last for at least three years,. Users should update to the newest Leap 15 Service Packs (SP) within six months of each SP release to receive prudent updates. Service Pack updates are expected annually."

Having in mind how stable, efficient and reliable Leap has become, with this release, we managed to keep the level of quality to the point that our private and Small Business users can, actually more than ever, profit from the enterprise background of an openSUSE Linux Distribution. Let's continue to have a lot of fun!\"\n\nLeap releases are scalable and both the desktop and server are equally important for professional\u2019s workloads, which is reflected in the installation menu as well as the amount of packages Leap offers and hardware it supports. Leap is well suited and prepared for usage as a Virtual Machine (VM) or container guest, allowing professional users to efficiently run network services no matter whether it\u2019s a single server or a data center.\n\nProfessional users, system administrators and developers can have confidence in the reliability of the Leap distribution based on its development process to deliver a modern, secure, maintained and highly tested distribution using the open-source build system unique to both SUSE and openSUSE, which is the Open Build Service, along with the automated testing of openQA.\n\n====  What\u2019s New  ====\n\nAn entirely new graphics stack update is available for this stable community- and enterprise-based open-source GNU/Linux distribution. Graphics hardware supported by the 4.19 Linux Kernel were backported for the release of Leap 15.1, which uses the 4.12 Linux Kernel and supports additional graphics drivers for Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) and improved support for AMD Vega chipset.\n\nGPU virtualization has become quite popular among vendors like AMD, Intel and Nvidia and Leap 15.1 helps to delivers these implementation and support solutions for virtualized and cloud environments.  \n\nLeap 15.1 will now use Network Manager by default for both laptops and desktops - previously only laptops defaulted to Network Manager. Server installations will continue to default to Wicked, the openSUSE advanced network configuration system. The release adds a few popular WiFi drivers for more modern wireless chipsets. A change that applies to both Wicked and Network Manager is that /etc/resolv.conf, yp.conf and some other files are a link to a file in /run and are managed by netconfig. \n\nThe management of system services in YaST has been revamped to take advantage of many of the features offered by systemd in that area. \n\n==== Improved Setup and Configuration ====\n\nSome of the improvements to YaST have made for better management of services. Firewalld can be managed in text mode. There is a new User Interface to manage Firewalld, including AutoYaST support/advancements. System administrators will have better control with Salt formulas in the yast2-configuration-management module, and management of SSH keys per user will make sysadmins tasks much more pleasant.\n\nYaST comes with an improved Partitioner, that now can automatically format full disks without partition tables, create software MD RAIDs on top of full disks, create partitions within a software-defined MD RAID and many other combinations. AutoYaST also supports all these combinations. The work the YaST team has put into the setup and configuration tool has a better default partitioning proposal in several scenarios like those with small disks or systems with several disks making solutions easier for Linux professionals. Leap 15.1 brings new YaST icons developed by the community.\n\nThe YaST team worked hard on improving the 4k display (HiDPI) experience. HiDPI displays are now  autodetected and the UI is auto-scaled giving the installer a beautifully crisp interface.\n\n==== Security and Maintenance  ====\nMaintenance updates from both Leap 15 and updates from SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 are inherited into Leap 15.1 and are part of the release. The security team issues fast updates for Leap 15.1. With maintenance updates, about 10 to 20 percent are contributed from the community. \n\nThere is a YaST testing option for users to test maintenance updates before being released. The testing repository allows users to test the updates seven days before being pushed to the maintenance update repository. \n\nMinor versions of the Leap 15 series have about an 18-month life cycle of maintenance and security as minor releases come roughly once a year. Users of openSUSE Leap, 15.0, which was released on May 25, 2018, should upgrade to Leap 15.1 within the next 6 months. The 15 series of Leap is expected to achieve an estimated 36 months of maintenance and security updates. \n\n==== Images, Deployment and Hardware with Linode, Slimbooks and Tuxedo ====\n\nLeap 15.1 continues to add more hardware providers as Slimbook and TUXEDO Computers will both offer the option of purchasing hardware with Leap 15.1 preinstalled. Linode cloud images of Leap are available today and ready for all infrastructure needs. \n\nTUXEDO Computers devices were an important part of the openSUSE reference tests of Leap 15.1.\n\n\"We share the fundamental belief that the user should have the best user experience we can offer,\" said Herbert Feiler, CEO of TUXEDO Computers. \"openSUSE Leap 15.1 is the consistent continuation and further development of stable Linux for end users. Therefore we of course continue to offer openSUSE pre-installed on all TUXEDO notebooks and PCs,\" adds Feiler.\n\nCloud hosting services will offer images of Leap 15.1 in the coming weeks like Amazon Web Services, Azure and OpenStack. Leap 15 is continually optimized for cloud usage scenarios as a host and virtualization guest.\n\n==== Desktop Environment ====\n\nLeap offers a great variety of Linux desktops, including traditional KDE, GNOME as well as efficient Xfce. Users can select their preferred desktop environment, configuration and workflow. GNOME 3.26 and the Long-Term-Support version of KDE Plasma 5.12 are in both Leap 15.0 and Leap 15.1. SLE 15 enterprise users can also get the KDE version and other community tools and packages available through [https://packagehub.suse.com/ PackageHub]. Live images of KDE and GNOME are available for simple test-driving through the live tab under the Leap distribution on software.opensuse.org; a Rescue Live image is also available on the [https://download.opensuse.org/distribution/leap/15.1/live/ Live Images] page for those mentioned above.\n\n==== Containers  ====\nLeap 15.1 is filled with several containerization technologies like Singularity, which bring containers and reproducibility to scientific computing and the high-performance computing (HPC) world. Singularity first appeared in the Leap distribution in Leap 42.3 and provides functionality to build smallest minimal containers and runs the containers as single application environments. This is also the first Leap release containing the Podman container runtime and Buildah build tool; the used by default in openSUSE Kubic. Collectively they provide a more lightweight and resilient alternative to the alternative Docker container runtime, while also adding a number of unique features.\n\n====  Gamers and Designers ====\n\nWeb designers and digital marketers can make use of the newer graphics stack with the minor version update of the Mesa 3d Graphic Library and use open source tools like the 3D Creation Software Blender to create intriguing and captivating animations.\n\nGamers, music lovers and podcaster can enjoy the enhancements of the High Definition HD-audio, backported USB-audio drivers and software updates that were made for MultiMedia Card (MMC) and embedded MMC (eMMC). \n\n==== Migration to Enterprise made easy ====\nopenSUSE Leap 15.1 brings plenty of community packages built on top of a core sources of SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLE) 15 SP1. The shared common core and alignment with SLE makes migrations to SUSE\u2019s enterprise product easy for professional who want to extend the life cycle of their maintenance and security past the lifecycle of Leap. Migrating from the community version of Leap to SUSE Linux Enterprise is an available option for those who desire to migrate. The migration from openSUSE Leap server installations to SUSE Linux Enterprise is easy for system integrators developing on Leap code who may decide to move to an enterprise version for SLAs, certification, mass deployment, or extended Long Term Support. The instructions on how to do this using the SUSEConnect package and SUSE documentation can be found [https://www.suse.com/documentation/sles-15/book_sle_upgrade/data/sec_upgrade-online_opensuse_to_sle.html here].\n\n==== All Standard and Some Existing Services for Networks ====\nLike prior versions, System Administrators and small businesses can use Leap for hosting web and mail servers or for network management with DHCP, DNS, NTP, Samba, NFS, LDAP, and hundreds of other services.\n\nFile sharing and cloud services include software such as [https://nextcloud.com/ NextCloud] and even the groupware application suite [https://kopano.com/ Kopano] (formerly known as Zarafa) is part of the official Leap 15.1 repositories.\n\nLeap 15.1 also introduces automatically configured SSH for both it\u2019s \u201cServer\u201d and \u201cTransactional Server\u201d system roles by default, helping make things a little easier to work on your server immediately after installation.\n\n==== Health and Science ====\nThe Leap distribution supports the health, science, research and developer communities. GNU Health, the award-winning health- and hospital management system, comes in version 3.4.x, which introduces the Federation Server, gnuhealth-thalamus. There is an added setup-script for GNU Health called openSUSE-gnuhealth-setup to ease the setup of a new system for less experienced users.\nSolve linear and nonlinear problems numerically and perform other numerical experiments using a language that is mostly compatible with MATLAB through GNU Octave or use the Free and Open Source Geographic Information System [https://www.qgis.org/ QGIS] to create, edit, visualize, analyze and publish geospatial information. \nLeap has plenty more packages like the Computer Algebra System (CAS) for problems in field theory called Cadabra, the interactive physical simulator Step, and the periodic table package Kalzium.\n\n==== Platforms ====\nLeap works with X86_64 and deployment scenarios can be run for physical, virtual, host and guest, and cloud. Ports to other architectures like [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ARM_architecture ARM64] and [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_Architecture POWER] are in the works by the community.\n\nThe installation of openSUSE for the Raspberry Pi for ARM64 has been simplified to one image and is customizable. openSUSE Leap 15.1 is the first multi-purpose operating systems to support a full standard Linux experience in Raspberry Pi. There is no need for a custom specific ISO or precooked image to install on the Raspberry PI. The standard unmodified openSUSE image can be installed just like on any other computer. The installer detects and proposes the set of default configurations. Raspberry Pi needs a very specific partition containing the system firmware. This is important for the installer to detect the specific partition, preserve it and mount it in /boot/vc to allow the operating system to perform updates of the firmware.\n\n\n==== Download Leap 15.1 ====\nTo download the ISO image, visit https://software.opensuse.org/distributions/leap\n\n==== Questions ====\nIf you have a question about the release or think you may have found a bug, ask on one of the following :\n* https://t.me/openSUSE_group \n* https://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-support/\n* https://discordapp.com/invite/openSUSE\n\n==== Get involved ====\nIf you would like to help the openSUSE Project, take a look at the list of ways\nyou can participate at:\nhttps://rootco.de/2016-04-03-opensuse-and-you/\n\nThe openSUSE Project is a worldwide community that promotes the use of Linux everywhere.
