Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

Back on a weekly cadence for the reviews. So this time I again only review a single week, in which Tumbleweed has seen 4 snapshots being published (0926, 0927, 0930 and 1002).

The snapshots contained these updates (and more, as usual):

  • filesystem: Add /usr/libexec and /usr/local/libexec
  • glibc 2.30
  • Linux kernel 5.3.1
  • strace 5.3

There are more things being staged. Some of the more interesting areas of work:

  • libeconf integration into openSUSE: move default config files from /etc to /usr/etc
  • systemd 243
  • Linux kernel 5.3.2 and beyond
  • poppler 0.81.0
  • GStreamer 1.16.1
  • KDE Plasma 5.17.0: current alphas are staged and being tested
  • util-linux to enable libeconf integration
  • openssl 1.1.1d: breaks nodejs8, nodejs10 and python3
