Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

This week we ‘only’ delivered 5 snapshots. But at least it was big ones, so that makes up for it. The review covers the snapshots {0211..0215}.

What did you receive

  • apparmor 2.11.0
  • KDE Plasma 5.9.1
  • KDE Applications 16.12.2
  • Linux Kernel 4.9.9
  • grep 2.28, with performance improvements
  • PackageKit-Qt: no more support for Qt4

In the staging ares, some work has been happening, but the usual suspects are still awaiting some love:

  • rpm 4.13.0 – the easy ones seem fixed; some obscure errors are left; mainly rpmlint seems to have trouble now
  • KDE Plasma 5.9.2
  • Mesa 17.0.0 (jumping up from 13.0)
  • Linux Kernel 4.9.10
  • glibc 2.25: still some failures left to tackle
  • util-linux will no longer pull in insserv for you. If your package makes use of it, you are now responsible for it
  • Libreoffice 5.3 – still fails the test suite on ppc64le
  • Python 3.6 – almost ready. The final piece is apparmor, where a fix is in the works / almost ready

As many will have noticed, the legal-auto bot is currently ‘much more reluctant’ to accept submissions. This is due to a total rewrite/restructuring of the legal process. See Stephan Kulow’s mail for more information.
