At CoreOS, running containers securely is a number one priority. We recently landed a number of features that are helping make CoreOS Linux a trusted and even more secure place to run containers. As of the 808.0.0 release, CoreOS Linux is tightly integrated with SELinux to enforce fine-grained permissions for applications. Building on top of these permissions, our container runtime, rkt, has gained support for SVirt in addition to a default SELinux policy.

Today we are releasing the first set of official Kubernetes on CoreOS guides and installation tools. This is in effort to make it even easier to get up and running with Kubernetes while experiencing the benefits of running on CoreOS Linux. The guides are actively maintained by the CoreOS team and are subject to regular Kubernetes conformance testing.

You are now able to use Flocker, an open-source container data volume manager for containerized applications, on CoreOS Linux. This brings the benefits of data management and portability from Flocker together with the lightweight, painless, automatic security updates from running on CoreOS Linux.

Today at the OpenStack Summit in Vancouver, we are pleased to announce that CoreOS Linux – the lightweight operating system that provides stable, reliable updates to all machines connected to the update service – is included in the OpenStack Community App Catalog.

Less than one month ago from today we launched Tectonic. So it was with great excitement that yesterday during Nick Weaver's, director of SDI-X at Intel, keynote at CoreOS Fest, Intel announced that they are going to help Tectonic reach customers as quickly as possible, by enabling the development of easy to order and consume appliances.

Today we are happy to announce CoreOS Linux now supports Amazon Web Services GovCloud (US). AWS GovCloud is an isolated AWS Region for US government agencies and customers to move sensitive workloads into the AWS cloud by addressing their specific regulatory and compliance requirements. With this, automatic updates are now stable and available to all government agencies using the cloud.

Today we are pleased to announce that the first CoreOS image to have an etcd v2.0 release is now available in CoreOS alpha channel. etcd v2.0 marks a milestone in the evolution of etcd and includes many new features and improvements over etcd 0.4 including:

This is a guest post from CoreOS contributor, Geoff Levand, Linux Architect, Huawei America Software Lab. He has started work on an ARM64 port of CoreOS. Here is the current state of the project, followed by how you can help.

The glibc vulnerability, CVE-2015-0235, known as “GHOST”, has been patched on CoreOS. If automatic updates are enabled (default configuration), your server should already be patched.

If automatic updates are disabled, you can force an update by running update_engine_client -check_for_update.
