Linux News Today: TurnKey Linux 14.1 Rebased on Debian 8.4, Now Offers over 100 Appliances
TurnKey announced the general availability of TurnKey Linux 14.1, the first point release of the Debian-based virtual appliance library distributed as ISO images or virtual machines.
TurnKey Linux 14.1 has been in development for the past half-year, during which the ever-growing team of developers behind the TurnKey project implemented many improvements, fixed a lot of bugs reported by the community, and upgraded most of the appliances on the latest Debian release.
“About seven months after the release of v14.0 we are proud to announce the updated v14.1 release,” said Jeremy Davis in the announcement. “Once again this release has been a community affair! We’ve had lots of great contributions from many motivated and helpful people. Most of the usual suspects get a mention.”
Over 100 TurnKey appliances are now available
Based on the Debian GNU/Linux 8.4 “Jessie” operating system, the TurnKey Linux 14.1 release gives users instant and free access to a huge library of over 100 appliances that integrates some of the best open-source software, thus offering ready-to-use solutions to the community.
Among the most popular virtual appliances, we can mention for WordPress, Joomla, phpBB, Apache Tomcat, Moodle, Drupal, Django, Bugzilla, TWiki, Trac, Mantis, MediaWiki, Rails, MoinMoin, Openbravo, PostgreSQL, MySQL, MovableType, LAMP, Vtiger, Zimra, Magento, ProjectPier, Torrent Server, StatusNet, and File Server.
As part of the launch of Turnkey Linux 14.1, the team was also proud to announce a brand-new appliance called TurnKey MediaServer, which has been designed from the ground up to offer users a simple network-attached media storage solution for bringing their home videos, photos, and music together.
TurnKey Linux 14.1 also comes with an updated version of the open-source and widely used Webmin web-based system configuration tool for Unix-like systems. You can access the entire TurnKey Linux appliance database at https://www.turnkeylinux.org/all and choose the ones you need for your project(s).
