Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

It seems unbelievable, but we did it again: a week with a new snapshot every single day. This review will cover the 7 snapshots {1117..1123}. Unfortunately, That’s the end of the streak, as we had to cancel 1124 already due to sddm doing something strange with the login screen. But we’re confident that the currently building snapshot will be fine again and will reach you tomorrow.

What did the 7 snapshots bring to the openSUSE Tumbleweed userbase:

  • Mesa 13.0.1 – minor update from 13.0.0
  • Mozilla Firefox 50.0
  • KDE Frameworks 5.28.0
  • 3 Kernel updates (4.8.8, 4.8.9 and 4.8.10)
  • cmake 3.7.0
  • systemd package closing the gap to SLE, preparing for more intrusive updates

And there are some things piling up to be delivered to you:

  • X.Org 1.19.0 – some driver updates are ready, some still need adjustments
  • sddm 0.14.0 – second attempt

That’s just the noteworthy things that are already in the queue to Tumbleweed; but I’m sure the various developer teams are preparing many more things in their dev spaces.
