Post Syndicated from corbet original

OpenSUSE Leap 15.2 is
and ready for a planned release on July 2. Leap is the
version based on SUSE Linux Enterprise, but with many updated packages; see
the 15.2 features
for an overview of what’s coming. “Leap 15.2 is filled with
several containerization technologies like Singularity, which bring
containers and reproducibility to scientific computing and the
high-performance computing (HPC) world. Singularity first appeared in the
Leap distribution in Leap 42.3 and provides functionality to build smallest
minimal containers and runs the containers as single application
environments. Another official package in Leap 15.2 is
libcontainers-common, which allows the configuration of files and manpages
shared by tools that are based on the libraries, such
as Buildah, CRI-O, Podman and Skopeo. Docker containers and tooling make
building and shipping applications easy and fast.
