https://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-devel/2021-June/077079.htmlHello all,

As I announced back in June[1], the CentOS Hyperscale SIG started
producing an experimental Hyperscale Workstation Spin to showcase the
technologies we're working on to the broader community.

Today, I'm pleased to announce we've refreshed the images we released
at the end of July[2]. Like that release, this one includes both GNOME
and KDE Workstation variants.

The spins are available here:

* GNOME ISO: https://d2r1r30d0ahkv5.cloudfront.net/CS8-HS-GNOME-LIVE-20211001.iso
* KDE ISO: https://d2r1r30d0ahkv5.cloudfront.net/CS8-HS-KDE-LIVE-20211001.iso
* SHA512 checksums:

We also now have the latest version of the spins for download at the
Hyperscale SIG website:

Aside from being a general package content refresh, there is a notable fix:

* PackageKit now is able to resolve CentOS repositories. Since CentOS
repositories use non-standard DNF vars in the repository paths,
PackageKit was not able to resolve them. This bug was reported over a
year ago (and fixed in PackageKit upstream!), but despite having a
patch to fix it, it has not been fixed, so we now ship a patched
PackageKit to resolve the problem. The Red Hat bug describes the issue
and has a fix for it included:

The remaining issues are expected to be the same as the previous release[2].

If you find any other issues, we would definitely love to hear about
them! We have a dedicated issue tracker for Hyperscale spins where we
would appreciate bugs to be reported:

We hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making this!

Thanks and best regards,
Neal (on behalf of the CentOS Hyperscale SIG)
