  • Snapcraft 1.0 Ubuntu Snappy Creator Tool Officially Released, Here's What's New

    Canonical's Snappy team had the great pleasure of announcing the release and immediate availability for download of the Snapcraft 1.0 Snappy creator tool for Ubuntu Linux.

    Snapcraft 1.0 is the product of many months of hard work, during which the software has had six development builds, bringing as many new features as possible and fixing bugs reported by users during the entire development cycle (see the what's new section below for details).

  • Snapper: SUSE's Ultimate Btrfs Snapshot Manager

    Snapper, the excellent Btrfs management tool, is yet another of SUSE Linux's best-kept secrets.

    I call SUSE the secret Linux, because it's the most advanced Linux distribution, but hardly anyone seems to know about it. SUSE has officially supported Btrfs, the next-generation Linux filesystem, since SLES 11 SP2, and supplies the excellent Snapper tool to manage Btrfs. Grab yourself a free openSUSE download, or a free 60-day SUSE Enterprise Linux evaluation and follow along as we learn how to create and manage snapshots with Snapper.
