OpenSUSE Developers Tackle Redesigning YaST
Written by Michael Larabel in SUSE on 10 February 2016 at 07:05 AM EST. 7 Comments
For users of the rolling-release openSUSE Tumbleweed distribution, there has been a major rework of YaST taking place.

YaST for the uninitiated is openSUSE/SUSE's installation and configuration tool. The YaST setup tool offered a heck of a lot of options before while now it's getting even better thanks to a recent development sprint.

YaST developers have been redesigning the user creation dialog, some crash fixes, storage-related enhancements, and many other improvements.

OpenSUSE users wishing to learn more about this YaST redesign with the initial fruits of that work now being available via Tumbleweed, visit and this openSUSE Lizards blog post.
