Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

Two seems to become the new magic number of Tumbleweed snapshots we release per week. This week, this was snapshots 1018 and 1022. But some users at least were excited about the changes in those snapshots, which included:

  • GNOME 3.30.1 (our first push of the GNOME 3.30 stack). A massive performance regression had been reported by multiple users and improved packages have been published in the openSUSE Tumbleweed update channel (as a quick-measure to get things going). Future snapshots will contain the fixes directly of course
  • KDE Plasma 5.14.1
  • KDE Frameworks 5.51.0
  • KDE Applications 18.08.2
  • Linux kernel 4.18.14 & 4.18.15

At least the two major desktops users both got quite some updates this time.

As in the last weeks, some stagings are long-lasting and seem not to come to a solution – and your help can make the difference in moving them forward. The construction sites are around:

  • 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
  • LLVM7 / Mesa 18.2.x (VLC crashes need to be investigated, Staging:K)
  • KDE Plasma 5.14.2
  • RPM
  • Linux kernel 4.19.x
  • Meson 0.48.x
  • Systemd v239
