we are pleased to announce the new releases of OBS Light (0.5.3) and
Fake OBS (0.6.0).
This new version allows to branch any packages delivered via a Fake OBS
images directly in OBS Light client without passing via an OBS server in
the middle.

OBS Light client now also creates repositories where your locally built
packages are published. These local repo can be used to create image
with Mic (which is integrated in the GUI) or to download the custom
packages direclty on your target with zypper.
