BoxGrinder 0.10.2 Released

The bug-fix release BoxGrinder Build 0.10.2 is available. It contains a couple of important fixes which have been breaking people's S3 AMI appliances on Amazon EC2. You can refer to our previous blog post about it, but put tersely, you should be able to successfully run appliances on any EC2 instance size without issue now!

We've managed to sneak in an extra feature however...

Fedora 17 support

Huzzah, Fedora 17 support is here and working well. You can build an appliance in the usual manner, simply write your appliance definition specifying fedora 17 as your OS name and version:

name: my-super-cool-fedora-17-appliance
  name: fedora
  version: 17

If you have any issues with the new OS, please open a ticket in our bug-tracker.
