Wed Mar 7 04:14:38 MST 2018

Here it comes! Release Candidate 1 of SUSE Linux Enterprise 15:
  SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES),
  SUSE Linux Enterprise Just Enough Operating System(JeOS),
  SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED),
  SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability (SLE-HA),
  and SUSE Linux Enterprise Workstation Extension (SLE-WE)


== Important Notice
=Packages DVD
When using Packages DVD to install SLE modules, please make sure to also add the 
Product repository you are installing (SLES / SLED / HA / ...) from Packages DVD.
Not doing so might result in missing system roles during installation.

=Notable changes
- Migration from SLE 12 to SLE 15:
Here are the supported Migration scenarios from SLE 12 to SLE 15. 
  - Offline migration:
    By using SLE-15-Installer and SLE-15-Packages isos manually. Boot on the 
    SLE-15-Installer, then select and follow the "Upgrade" wizard. Make sure you add the 
    SLE-15-Packages DVD as the source for the SLE 15 
  - Online migration:
    By using a SLE 15 Beta Registration Code[2] on a SLE 12 instance and booting
    on the SLE-15-Installer. Then select and follow the "Upgrade" wizard. Make
    sure your network setting is done so the SLE-15-Installer will be able to
    contact our SCC or your SMT/SUSE Manager as source for the SLE 15 Modules. 
- SLES 15 JeOS images are now available for download and testing!
- The Desktop Productivity Module has been replaced by the SLE Workstation 
Extension. This will only be an issue if you do an upgrade from a former Beta 
installation (which is an unsupported scenario[3]).
- The HA Module and HA Product have been combined to one HA Product which will 
be available for the various products where it's eligible. Reason for the
changes with those two modules is that we want to simplify the universe.
- yast2-ca-management is no longer provided (FATE#319119).
- OpenSSL 1.0 is no longer installed by default, all packages have been migrated
to OpenSSL 1.1. OpenSSL 1.0 will be available in Legacy module in the next
