Last week TurnKey Linux came out of beta in its last release based on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. Though Canonical will continue supporting Ubuntu 8.04 for another 3 years, all future releases of the virtual appliance library will be based on the upcoming Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid) Long Term Support version.
The current out-of-beta release features:
- Bugfixes for all outstanding issues
- Pre-installation of security updates
- Improved Amazon EC2 support: simplified free subscription, support for all regions, EBS auto-mounting, and automatic EC2 instance setup
- Support for TurnKey Hub: a simplified cloud deployment service soon to launch in private beta.
