Open Build Service (OBS) 2.4 has been released. "With OBS 2.4 it is now possible to build packages in the PKGBUILD format used for instance by the popular Arch Linux distribution. This is the third package format, after RPM and DEB, supported by the OBS which makes it feasible to build and ship software for all the major Linux distributions that use a binary package format. Another popular demand for build servers these days is the support for signing individual files (bootloader, driver etc.) inside packages with a cryptographic key to support standards like UEFI secure boot. In version 2.4 the OBS sign daemon has been extend to handle this security feature. And with the rise of App-Stores as means to distribute software to end users this OBS release brings support for the cross-distribution application metadata standard AppStream."
