Release Engineering Testbuild Results

This is an overview showing a test results matrix of release engineering produced ISOs. Various options and configurations are shown with last success and last failure results, if known. To help improve ISO quality, you are encouraged to give feedback if you have tested and used any ISOs. Both successful and failed results are encouraged and welcome.

For a overview of which ISOs tested best, have a look at the overview.

For more information, see the documentation on the wiki.

All ISOs referenced on this page are available from https://releng.archlinux.org/isos/.
