Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

Tumbleweed is rolling – just the way we like it. Last week we published 7 snapshots (0629, 0630, 0701, 0702, 0703, 0704 and 0706). I was not performing any check-ins on 0705, as we were busy rebuilding the inner rings for some test setup issues; nothing that impacts your machines, but one of the tests couldn’t cope with our latest, yet long awaited libzypp config

But first, let’s see what the last 6 snapshots brought us before we look into the future:

  • NetworkManager-applet 1.8.2 (to go with the recent update of NetworkManager)
  • KDE Plasma 5.10.3
  • Linux Kernel 4.11.8
  • Cups 2.2.3
  • KDE Frameworks 5.35.0

The future is bright – the future is green: the upcoming Tumbleweed snapshots will bring you:

  • libzypp: change the default setting of ‘dupAllowVendorChange’ to false for Tumbleweed installations. Often discussed, often asked for – finally delivered (currently in staging)
  • Linux Kernel 4.12
  • Qt 5.9.1
