   provides the  following changes:

   743589 Corrected behaviour of script slms-purge

   * The script slms purge --node nocontact with --date
   should delete nodes which doesn't contact SLMS after but
   instead it remove all nodes which is registered before . It
   can cause severe data lose for customers, as already
   working appliance stop working as unregistered.

   * Add support for appliances based on SUSE Linux
   Enterprise 11-SP2.

   749598 Appliances fails to register after update

   * Missing reference to a rexml/document library in the
   the external part of rails app controller caused a server
   error during register process of customers' appliances.

   749717 Changed owvership of overlay files archives

   * Fixed problem with permissions in
   slms/webapp/lib/overlay_files_pack.rb where the new
   directory created via extract of tar archive from SUSE
   Studio kept the original permissions which was unacceptable
   in case the expected owner was root.

   750487 Appliance version removal not successful

   * Adapted and later from Studio and SLMS removed
   appliance could not be removed completely from SLMS after
   it has been downgraded to a previous version, which blocked
   any updates of an adapted appliance to a new version with a
   lower number. This patch includes removal of all records
   from db and file system from any release and update
   packages and patches when a appliance version is being

   750670 Added UI elements to customer modification

   * Adds options for removing testing customers
   completely and for switching the status of the customer
   between 'active' and 'inactive'. These options were missing
   in the recent releases.

   752093 Errors in web server SSL configuration

   * New update package modified apache1 configuration
   files by removing customers' own certificates and put the
   default SLMS certificate in place. Resolved by splitting
   Apache configuration and including new configuration file

   759720 Removal of rejected patches

   * Fix removal of patches rejected in the "Testing
   Update Repository".
