Release of Oz 0.2.0

I'm pleased to announce release 0.2.0 of Oz. Oz is a program for doing automated installation of guest operating systems with limited input from the user.

There are quite a bit of bugfixes, features, and updates to Oz between 0.1.0 and 0.2.0. Some of them are:

  • The ability to upload individual files into a guest

  • The ability to specify extra repositories to install packages on the guest from

  • Updated documentation

  • More control over Oz's caching behavior. You can now specify whether you want Oz to cache the original ISO, the modified ISO, the resulting JEOS image, or any combination of the above

  • Support for installing Ubuntu 10.04 and 10.10 guests

  • Support for installing CentOS 3, 4, and 5 guests

  • Support for OpenSUSE 11.0

  • Faster ISO extraction/generation

  • A user-configurable timeout for installation
