At the start of the year SUSE's YaST team announced D-Installer as their new web-based distribution installer. Now as we approach the end of the year, D-Installer is ready for more widespread user testing and they are looking for help from the community in testing. Additionally, they are looking for help coming up with a new name for the "D-Installer".

SUSE/openSUSE developers have been making great strides on this new installer. D-Installer is web-based and leverages the excellent YaST. There has been experimental builds of D-Installer going back to March while now it's in a more comfortable state for carrying out Tumbleweed, Leap, and Leap Micro installs.

SUSE's D-Installer

OpenSUSE today issued a call for testing to try out the D-Installer installer images being produced. Currently it's being worked on for openSUSE Factory while it will also come to their next-generation Adaptable Linux Platform (ALP) in due course.

In addition to the help in testing the actual installer, the developers are also soliciting ideas for a new name to replace the "D-Installer" branding.
