  • openSUSE Tumbleweed – Review of the Week 2016/30

    Posted on July 29th, 2016 Dominique Leuenberger No comments

    Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

    This week we only delivered you three snapshots, 0724, 0726 and 0728. Build of the last one was a bit too fast and it bypassed 0727 while it was still testing – but in turn it now takes it’s ample time to let itself be distributed to the mirrors.

    The noteworthy things that were delivered this week are:

    • Completion of KDE Applications 16.04.3
    • TeXLive 2016
    • Remmina 1.2
    • sssd 1.14.0 – NOTE: openQA failed some test, see boo#990375
    • openSSH 7.2p2

    This being prepared and hopefully reaching you soon:

    • Kernel 4.7
    • QEMu 2.6 with RBD support
    • LXDM will be removed. Use lightdm instead
    • Plasma 5.7.2

    Have a lot of fun – and enjoy the time

    Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

    Week 29 brought us, as usual, 4 snapshots. Those were 0715, 0716, 0718 and 0720. The most spectacular update was in 0715, but the entire week is noteworthy as Tumbleweed brought you those updates:

    • Plasma 5.7.0
    • KDE Framework 5.24.0
    • KDE Applications 16.04.3
    • Freetype 2.6.5
    • Kernel 4.6.4
    • The Live images again contain an installer option – now based on NET install

    The following this are still brewing in staging areas:

    • TeXLive 2016 – issues are solved, we can expect this in week 30
    • Plasma never sleeps: version 5.7.2 pending

    Seems short, but we can also see quite some resources from developers and testers redirected to openSUSE Leap 42.2 – which is a very welcome addition of course.
