TurnKey Version 14.1 Based Off Debian Linux 8.4 “Jessie” Now Available

The TurnKey programme offers users a range of Debian based package server software appliances that can be integrated and deployed into some of the best free and open-source software available on the Linux platform.

The project was launched in 2008 and the developers said they were inspired to provide free alternatives to proprietary virtual appliance vendors. Only started out with just four supported appliances, the project has grown exponentially over time and now supports over one hundred.


The developers behind the project have announced the availability of TurnKey Linux 14.1 and first point released will come in both ISO images and virtual machines.

“About seven months after the release of v14.0, we are proud to announce the updated v14.1 release. Once again this release has been a community affair! We’ve had lots of great contributions from many motivated and helpful people. Most of the usual suspects get a mention.” said Jeremy Davis.

The new release will strengthen TurnKeys reach in the Linux community as it is expected to improve access to the many appliances that offers ready-to-use solutions free for everyone.

Some of the most notable names that TurnKey can be integrated to are :WordPress, Joomla, phpBB, Apache Tomcat, Moodle, Drupal, Django, Bugzilla, TWiki, Trac, Mantis, MediaWiki, Rails, MoinMoin, Openbravo, PostgreSQL, MySQL, MovableType, LAMP, Vtiger, Zimra, Magento, ProjectPier, Torrent Server, StatusNet, and File Server.

The new upgraded will also be the maiden introduction of the TurnKey MediaServer which was designed and developed from scratch by the TurnKey developers and it will also feature the updated version of the open-source Webmin web-based system configuration tool for Unix-like systems
