I’m happy to announce that in April we switched the status of SUSE Package Hub from “beta” to “fully released” on SUSE Customer Center (SCC).

SUSE Package Hub allows SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 customers to deploy additional open source packages at no cost and with a minimum of effort. All customers with eligible products can now access packages from SUSE Package Hub like any other module or extension for SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 products.

SUSE Package Hub is available for the following products (including service packs):

  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 12
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Application 12
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for Raspberry Pi

SUSE Package Hub contains a growing list of over 800 open source packages.

SUSE Package Hub is approved by SUSE. This means that SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 remains supported when using packages from SUSE Package Hub. The packages themselves are not officially supported by SUSE.
