Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

This week was not a record when it comes to the number of snapshots, but there was a steady flow. There were just a couple days where none of the staging projects was in a state to be merged into Tumbleweed – which in turn means we also did not produce a new snapshot to throw at openQA daily. So, with this in mind, the three snapshots (0831, 0903 and 0905)  released during this week is actually a good number. One snapshot (0904) was discarded.

Changes that are in the delivered snapshots:

  • dbus 1.12.10
  • ucode-intel 20180807a
  • hexchat2.14.2
  • PHP 7.2.9
  • Virtualbox 5.2.18

There are still a good number of interesting changes upcoming:

  • glibc 2.28; the split of libxcrypt causes some build failures
  • OpenSSL 1.1.1
  • Boost 1.68
  • python 3.7
  • ncurses 6.1-20180707: breaks Xen (deprecations added, Xen builds with -Werror)
  • Usage of the new System Role selection instead of the legacy ‘desktop selection’
