Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

Due to last weeks openSUSE Conference the review had been skipped last week, so I will try to catch up on this as well. Despite that, I will cover 4 snapshots (0621, 0623, 0625 and 0626).

Snapshot 0621 marked the first release of openSUSE Tumbleweed being built using GCC6. As pre-announced, everything up to ring2 (things on the DVD) had been tested to work. Sadly, There were reports about Thunderbird failing to load its profiles, but creating new ones seemed to be fine (which is what openQA tries to do). A quick-fix was released shortly after to ensure that users are not blocked for too long by this (via the Tumbleweed update channel).

What else did those snapshots bring?

  • Distribution completely built using GCC 6
  • KDE Applications 16.04.2
  • Qt 5.6.1
  • Quite a lot of GCC6 build fixes on top of it

Despite the conference, it seems people found enough time to keep on contributing more and there are things being processed in stagings:

  • TeXLive 2016
  • KDE Framework 5.23.0
  • Mesa 12.0
