Out of beta, security updates, better Amazon EC2 support

Dear user,

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.

For an invitation to the TurnKey Hub beta register here.
