Hello everyone,

The new Apertis 18.03 stable release is now available.

You can find the full release notes at:


Some highlights from this release:

* Build infrastructure

This release has focused on completing the migration to the new debos
building pipeline which was started during the 17.12 release cycle and
is now complete. The new pipeline is meant to be faster and more
flexible, and also allow developers to easily build custom images on
their machines.

A design document has been added to cover the high-level concept and
infrastructure setup required for debos based image building.

Please see the release notes for the details on the new Git repositories
for the infrastructure-related files.

* API deprecations

We have continued to mark obsolete or problematic APIs with the ABI
break tag as a way to clear technical debt in future.

* LAVAv2 migration

We have dropped support for LAVAv1 jobs, having completed the transition
started during the preparation of 17.12 release.

been poured in this release:
