TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

TurnKey 13.0 release candidate 3 - a community effort!

Before getting to the release, let's recap on how we got here:

In June the TurnKey 12.1 64-bit maintenance release was announced, built with the (soon to be released) TKLDev build appliance.

TurnKey 12.1 is out and it's the first 64-bit maintenance release to be built with tkldev - TurnKey's shiny new open appliance build system in a box.

With 64-bit support out the door, we've also pushed out a round of updates to the Hub so that users can finally deploy TurnKey on all instance sizes.

Drumroll please... I'm thrilled to make not one, but two announcements!

Announcing TurnKey Linux 12.0: 100+ ready-to-use solutions

 

Ladies and gentlemen, the 12.0 release is finally out after nearly 6 months of development and just in time to celebrate TurnKey's 4th anniversary. I'm proud to announce we've more than doubled the size of the TurnKey Linux library, from 45 appliances to over 100!

TurnKey Core 12.0 RC optimized builds

Last month we announced the release candidate for TurnKey Core 12.0 - the common base for all appliances, based on the rock solid Debian Squeeze (6.0.4).

I'm pleased to announce a spanking brand new release candidate for TurnKey Core 12.0 - the common base for all appliances, based on the rock solid Debian Squeeze (6.0.4). The rumors were true! Hurrah! Hurrah!

This is an RC release, so take it for a spin and let us know what you think. If you come across any issues, please report them. If you have ideas on how to make it better, let us know!

Announcing TurnKey Xen optimized builds

Announcing TurnKey OpenStack optimized builds

As we mentioned before, making TurnKey easy to deploy on as many public and private clouds is an important goal for us. Unfortunately there are too many players in the cloud software space for us to support every single one. It's much easier to put effort into making TurnKey work well with the winning horses.

Announcing TurnKey OpenVZ optimized builds (+ Proxmox VE channel)

OpenVZ and Proxmox VE has been a recurring topic of discussion on the forums, for which we have Jeremy to blame thank. He's done tons of research, testing, preaching, and then some.

What I love about Open Source is that if you have an itch, and the drive to scratch it yourself, you can.

TurnKey 11.3 maintenance release - next stop Ubuntu 12.04!

Ho ho ho, happy holidays everyone! I know most of you are already shifting into holiday mode, so I'll keep it short and sweet.

We've just pushed out TurnKey 11.3 - the final maintenance release based on Ubuntu 10.04. The next release will be based on Ubuntu 12.04. We're already shifting into high gear for that. There will be surprises. Hopefully good ones!
