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).
The optimized builds can be downloaded from the core appliance page, directly via the TurnKey channel in ProxmoxVE (OpenVZ), deployed in the Amazon EC2 cloud via the TurnKey Hub, or via one of the official TurnKey partners (soon).
Build specific release notes
- See the announcement.
- Deployment: The TurnKey Hub has been updated to support Core 12.0 deployment and management (Launch new server -> 12.0). Once the full library has been updated to TKL 12.0 it will become the default, and the current release will be moved to Legacy.
VM optimized (VMDK, OVF)
- Open-VM-Tools: Previous VM optimized builds included the proprietry VMWare-Tools, but since VMWare have released a large portion of the code under the GPL, we've moved to open-vm-tools.
- Swap warning: VMware products might display a warning that no swap space was detected. This is a false positive, as swap is configured in LVM.
- Ramdisk required: TurnKey 12.0 requires the initrd to be registered for successful boot (exemplary import and registration code).
- Naming convention: We've updating the naming convention for openvz builds to support vanilla OpenVZ out of the box, and eliminate duplication for the Turnkey PVE channel. Thanks Jeremy!
- Removed NTP daemon: The NTP daemon has been removed as the clock is managed by the host. Thanks Martin!
- No more upstart hacks: Removed Ubuntu upstart hacks as they are not relevant in Debian.
- Xen optimized kernel: Moved to the Xen optimized kernel provided by Debian (linux-image-xen-686).
As always, we need your help in testing the builds. If you come across any issues or have ideas how they can be improved, please post a comment.
