OpenSUSE Rolls Out Tumbleweed Snapshots

Written by Michael Larabel in SUSE on 27 November 2017 at 11:57 AM EST. 11 Comments
For those that may enjoy the rolling-release nature of openSUSE Tumbleweed but want to be a bit more conservative with the updates, Tumbleweed now supports the concept of snapshots.

Via the tumbleweed CLI utility, interested users can now bind their system(s) to a given snapshot if not wanting to be continually riding the very latest Tumbleweed packaging changes on a daily basis.

Those interested in learning more about the openSUSE Tumbleweed Snapshots support can find the announcement by Jimmy Berry on opensuse-factory.
