Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

Another week has passed with again four snapshots published. This pace seems to be holding pretty solid and I think it’s not the worst speed there is. During this week, we have released the snapshots 1011, 1012, 1014 and 1016. As usual, some were smaller, some were bigger.

The changes include:

  • GStreamer 1.16.1
  • Linux kernel 5.3.5
  • KDE Plasma 5.17.0
  • KDE Frameworks 5.63.0
  • KDE Applications 19.08.2
  • LLVM 9.0 (added to the repo, but not yet the default llvm version in use)

The staging areas (and the next snapshot in production) already contain some updates again. Those include:

  • GNOME 3.34.1 (finally!)
  • Kubernetes 1.16
  • Mesa 19.2
  • openssl 1.1.1d: breaks nodejs8, nodejs10 and python3
  • More work to support /usr/etc
  • LLVM 9.0 as the default when using llvm

Besides all this, I’d like to bring yout attention to a change done to the setup of the openSUSE:Factory/snapshot build target. You can read all the needed information in the post published on the Factory mailing list at
