Good news, everybody! iFolder client packages[1] are now available for
openSUSE 11.1 from the openSUSE update repositories. This means you can
install iFolder client on openSUSE 11.1 using YaST or zypper, without any
modifications to your installed system.

Like openSUSE, iFolder is an open source project sponsored by Novell. iFolder
is a simple and secure storage solution that can make syncing and sharing
files easy. You can back up, access, and manage your personal files from
anywhere, at any time. Once you have installed iFolder, you simply save your
files locally and iFolder automatically updates the files on a network server
and delivers them to the other machines you use.

To install iFolder, just fire up YaST's Software Manager and search for
"ifolder3", or open a terminal and type the following:

sudo zypper ref

sudo zypper in ifolder3**

The iFolder server is available in the openSUSE Build Service. Just search for
"ifolder3-server" at[2].

For more information on iFolder, see the iFolder site. Want to run an
iFolder server without having to set up a server from scratch? Stephen Shaw,
Mario Carrión[3], and Andrés G. Aragoneses[4] created[5] a openSUSE-
based server appliance[6] using SUSE Studio. Just download the VMware image
and fire it up in VMware or VirtualBox.

To get involved with iFolder, see the how to contribute[7] doc and join
real-time discussions in the #ifolder channel on Freenode[8].
