[Shenzhen, China, March 27, 2020] The openEuler community has released its first Long-Term Support (LTS) edition, the openEuler 20.03 LTS, at the Huawei Developer Conference 2020 (Cloud). At the same time, Huawei has joined with four leading OS vendors, Kylinsoft, iSoft, Uniontech, and the Institute of Software Chinese Academy of Sciences (ISCAS), to announce commercial editions powered by openEuler. The announcement marks a new milestone for the commercial readiness of openEuler-based operating systems. openEuler, the open source, free Linux distribution platform that offers an open community for developers worldwide is now set to take the multi-core heterogeneous computing industry to the next level.
openEuler Boosts Innovation in Multi-Core Heterogeneous Computing
Huawei, as the founder and driving force of openEuler, is committed to investing in open source communities. As an open community, openEuler is a shared stronghold being built cooperatively by a growing number of global developers.
The openEuler community is quickly taking shape with its secretariat, technical committee, and security committee already in operation. To date, community participants have applied for and established more than 30 project teams.
openEuler LTS Signals Mass Commercial Readiness of Open Source OS
Current plans call for the openEuler community to release an LTS edition every two years and an innovative edition every six months to provide Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) management capability. openEuler is committed to an Upstream First policy to push all capabilities to the upstream open source community as quickly as possible.
Based on Huawei's technical expertise and product know-how, the openEuler 20.03 LTS edition has already demonstrated industry-leading stability and security. Building on full-stack software, it will fully unlock the power of diversified computing platforms, including:
Four OS Vendors Release Commercial Editions, Enrich Computing Ecosystem
Leading vendors including Kylinsoft, iSoft, Uniontech, and ISCAS actively supporting the openEuler community, have taken the lead to release commercial editions.
openEuler to Support OS Vendors both on Technology and Service Fronts
The openEuler community is committed to training, improving developers’ capabilities, and providing certification of OS vendors and developers to enhance skills and services. The openEuler technical summit is planned for April to expand and deepen the community’s technical communications. Planning for openEuler 20.09 is also well underway.
openEuler is not only an open source and free Linux distribution platform, but also an innovation platform. It encourages everyone to propose new ideas, practices and solutions, together driving a growing and prosperous application ecosystem.
