IBM is pleased to announce that Patch Management for SUSE is releasing 
support for Btrfs snapshot rollbacks and several enhancements for package 
installation and custom repository management.

SLE Btrfs Snapshot Management
You can manage Btrfs filesystem snapshots by using the rollback feature of 
the SLE Btrfs Snapshot Management dashboard. This feature allows you to 
restore to a previous system state at which a snapshot was taken.

Enhanced package installation task
You can use the Install packages by using zypper task (ID #19) to install 
software that is in your custom repositories. Custom repositories can give 
you the flexibility to control what you can deploy on the endpoints in 
your environment. 

The Install packages by using zypper task is enhanced to allow you to 
update all the packages on the endpoint and to install packages by using 
additional zypper flags or based on the CVE number.

Enhanced SLE Custom Repository Management dashboard
The repository registration feature in the SLE Custom Repository 
Management dashboard now allows you to enable autorefresh and URI checks.

Actions to Take:
Gathering of the site will automatically show the updates made. 

Published Site Version:
Patching Support Site, version 374

For more information about the new features, see the Patch Management for 
SUSE User's Guide.
