Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

This week, only two snapshots have been published (1004 and 1009); 1008 would have been good too, but it stayed too long in testing and was overtaken by OBS building 1009 a bit faster than openQA could test it. Well, more updates in one snapshot, but nothing lost.

The snapshots contained updates like

  • Linux kernel 4.18.11 & 4.18.12 (two snapshots, two kernels? oh yeah!)
  • Samba 4.9.1
  • Squid 4.3
  • KDE Plasma 5.14.0

And these things are being worked on:

  • GNOME 3.30 (likely to ship next week, but with GDM 3.28.x as we faced issues with autologin with the 3.30 branch)
  • 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
  • go 1.11
  • ncurses 6.1-20180707: breaks Xen (deprecations added, Xen builds with -Werror)
  • LLVM 7
  • Even more recent Linux kernels
  • Mesa 18.2.x (VLC crashes need to be investigated)
  • KDE Applications 18.08.2
