At their Collaboration Summit, The Linux Foundation has announced that the openSUSE Build Service is being added to the Linux Developer Network (LDN).

This coincides with the openSUSE project developers release of version 1.6 of the Build Service, also announced at the summit. New features in the release include support for the ARM platform, primarily used for embedded devices. The release also includes support for live CDs, building openSUSE appliances, installable USB images and the ability to create virtual machines for Xen and VMware.

The openSUSE Build Service is the same service that the openSUSE developers use to create the openSUSE 11.1 release. Not limited just to openSUSE, the Build Service makes it possible to create packages for a variety of major distributions, including CentOS, Debian, Fedora, Mandriva, Suse Linux Enterprise, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Ubuntu. The Build Service will compliment the popular AppChecker application, used to verify the portability of Linux applications.
