Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

Today, the weekly review reaches you a little bit late: I was out early yesterday to enjoy the weather. Here, the sun is finally coming out for more than just a few minutes. But, back to the important things that are the openSUSE Tumbleweed snapshots. Namely, we have released 6 snapshots (0603, 0604, 0605, 0606, 0609, and 0610) in the last week.

The major changes included:

  • Linux kernel 5.12.9
  • Mesa 21.1.2
  • KDE Plasma 5.22.0
  • libxml 2.9.12
  • Apache 2.4.48
  • PHP 7.4.20
  • Chrony 4.1
  • cURL 7.77.0
  • Mozilla Thunderbird 78.11.0
  • OpenSSH: move of the distro default config to /usr/etc. Admin config is supposed to be in /etc. Make sure to check the .rpmsave files after the update. Best to put config snippets in /etc/ssh/sshd_config.d/*.conf files to inherit distro config changes

The changes planned for the future snapshots include:

  • python3x packages will no longer provide a python symbol. This caused some confusion in the past when people expected ‘python’ to be the legacy python2, but python3x provided it as well.
  • Linux kernel 5.12.10
  • GNOME 40.2
  • systemd 248
  • KDE Gear 21.04.2
  • Cinnamon 5.0
