Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

During week 2018/40, some infrastructure issues (unavailability of hit us again – which meant we were not able to get representative tests for new snapshots out for two days. This, in turn, resulted in ‘only’ 3 snapshots being released this week: 0928, 1001 and fresh off the press: 1002.

The most relevant changes in those snapshots were:

  • Linux kernel 4.18.9
  • KDE Frameworks 5.50.0
  • iptables1.8.0
  • Qt 5.11.2
  • Mozilla Firefox 62.0.2
  • GStreamer 1.14.3
  • Java 11.0.0 – final release

The things in staging are largely unchanged since my last review – and can benefit from extra eyes and hands looking after them:

  • glibc 2.28, Python 3.7, openssl 1.1.1: the three all interdepend on each other and cause a bunch of new failures – See Staging:C
  • GNOME 3.30 – changes in GDM require adjustments in openQAs test handling (gdm now shuts down after login)
  • ncurses 6.1-20180707: breaks Xen (deprecations added, Xen builds with -Werror)
  • KDE Plasma 5.14.0 (currently, the beta 5.13.90 is being staged for integration testing. WE will only ship once 5.14.0 is released)
  • Linux kernel 4.18.11 and beyond
  • GO 1.11 (currently, cri-o fails the test suite in this setup)
