Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

We end the year with a big bang – and one more weekly review. The holiday season struck us: many contributors enjoyed some days away from the computers AND openQA decided also to leave on a short break. For this reason we were not able to pass snapshots on to you, or let’s say, not more than two snapshots 1222 and 1223.

Despite all absences, the snapshots still contain substantial changes, namely:

  • QEmu 2.11.0
  • Qt 5.10
  • Linux kernel 4.14.8
  • JDK 10 is now used to build anything Java related

The staging projects are already filled again and these are the main things being prepared:

  • Linux kernel 4.14.9
  • KDE Frameworks 5.41.0
  • RPM 4.14.0 (only a handful packages still to be fixed)
  • Libreoffice 6.0
  • Poppler 0.62.0
  • ICU 60
  • The YaST Team’s libstorage-ng implementation
  • KDE3 will be removed from Tumbleweed
