Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

Summer holiday is here (at least in the northern hemisphere) – and we can see a slightly reduced beat for new snapshots. I can ‘only’ report 3 instead of the usual 4 releases for this week (0701, 0703 and 0705), but the changes were still rather substantial. The slowness seems to be less an issue of package submissions as compared to OBS having trouble getting the stagings completely built. There seem to be a couple PowerPC workers missing.

Nevertheless, the three snapshots brought us:

  • Mesa 12.0
  • GIT 2.9.0
  • LibreOffice 5.2-rc1
  • PulseAudio 9.0
  • KDE Framework 5.23.0

And as usual, a rolling distribution would not be rolling if there would not be anything in the pipeline:

  • Plasma 5.7.0
  • Kernel 4.6.3
  • Freetype 2.8.4 – with a new subpixel hinting mode
