Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

We’re back on a weekly report – after all, there were some snapshots now. But first, at this place, a big THANK YOU to SUSE for the new openQA worker machine. It’s a pleasure to watch it run through a full openQA run of a snapshot in just about three hours.

Since last time, we released snapshots 0218, 0222, 0223 and 0224. And you can already see, we seem to be back on a much better release drum beat.

What interesting updates did those snapshots bring:

  • KDE Applications 15.12.2
  • KDE Framework 5.19.0
  • Linux kernel 4.4.1

Thins currently brewing in the staging areas:

  • Linux kernel 4.4.2
  • KDE ‘discover’ – The KDE Software Center (based on appdata)
  • openLDAP2 with password policy check

And also for this week, I have (unfortunately) a note-worthy bug to mention:

  • While updating your system, the package ‘xdm’ causes a session loss, causing your update call to halt mid-way (boo#968405).
