Adrian Schröter

The Open Build Service(OBS) version 2.3.0 brings new features esp.
in the Maintenance and Release Management area and is the latest
stable maintained version. It is recommended to update to this
version to get improved security protections. It is also the first
version which comes with official support offerings from our partner
B1-Systems backed by SUSE.

OBS 2.3 brings the functionality to maintain a released software
product in an efficient and transparent way. This includes

 * Update coordination: One or more maintenance groups can decide if
   and when to start or release an update. This includes also the
   tracking of new, running and processed updates
 * QA and Review integration: The current state of an update is
   always visible and trackable. Review processes can be integrated
 * Release Management: Isolated build and tested updates can be
   released or revoked via OBS mechanism
 * Multiple code stream support: An issue can be handled for multiple
   code stream
 * Documentation support: The documentation of an update for the
   end-user is integrated

This functionality is already used for doing the maintenance updates
for the openSUSE distributions<. The features can be used all
together or in parts for own products.

In addition OBS 2.3 provides
 * A greatly improved web interface, including user management, syntax
   highlighted source editor and improved source diff review views
 * Improved Cross Build Support via Qemu
 * Functionality to hide entire projects
 * Issue tracking support, tracking documented fixes in external
   bugzilla, fate and CVE instances in packages.

It is recommended to read the Release Notes before updating an instance.
OBS packages can be found in the openSUSE Tools project or as an appliance
which can be used on hardware or in VM.
