    applications that do not have ordering requirements, with automated, rolling 
    updates of stateful applications, and with new support for smart rollback of
    Kubernetes DeamonSets.
  - Extend Kubernetes to meet your needs with your own custom interfaces, or with
    third party APIs, using Kubernetes v1.7 API aggregation capabilities.

    setup now integrated with SUSE CaaS Platform
- Leverage new hardware with an updated version of SUSE MicroOS
  - SUSE MicroOS has been rebased on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP3, the latest 
    version of SUSE Linux Enterprise server, and is supported on the same, expanded set
    of hardware platforms.
  - Take advantage of more hardware platforms, including the new Intel Xeon® Processor 
    Scalable family as well as AMD EPYC™ and Ryzen™ processors.
- And more features and technical details will be revealed during the Beta phase!

Things to consider for this Beta?

Your DHCP server should provide resolveable hostnames. If this is not the case like with libvirt/KVM, you should consider providing one yourself by appending this kernel parameter "hostname=HOSTNAME" during installation.

However, the kubeconfig file downloaded from the Dashboard could contain an incorrect "server" hostname that should be replaced with the IP address of your Master. For more information read: https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Linuxrc#Network_Configuration

- Autoyast/VMX-Images

If you install via autoyast or one of the provided VMX beta images (KVM,Xen,VMware,...) please set a password or SSH key via cloud-init to be able to login.
