Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

During this week, we have only released 3 snapshots (1019, 1021, and 1022). a bunch of snapshots has been tested and discarded due to some bugs we, and surely either you, did not want to see on your machines. But as usual; lesser snapshots do not mean less change, as things just cumulate until we feel confident to send a snapshot out again.

The three snapshot contained, amidst others, these changes:

  • Mesa 20.2.1
  • openSSL 1.1.1h
  • Mozilla Thunderbird 78.3.3
  • Linux kernel 5.8.15, incl. backported fix for bleeding tooth
  • Ruby 2.7.2
  • KDE Plasma 5.20.1

This leaves the staging projects left with these planned changes:

  • jsoncpp 1.9.4: libyui fixes are ready
  • nasm 2.15.5: Addresses the breakage seen last week with nasm 2.15.4
  • Mozilla Firefox 82.0
  • Cups 2.3.3
  • GStreamer 1.18.0
  • Ruby 2.6 will be removed from Tumbleweed (ruby2.6-rubygem-* is already gone, now the interpreter will disappear too)
  • PostgreSQL 13
  • Linux kernel 5.9.1
  • GNOME 3.38.1: mozjs78 is now available in Tumbleweed
  • openssl 3.0 (long-term; no progress in the last few weeks)
  • RPM 4.16: steady progress made with package fixes.
