Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

Another week, in which openQA did block some of the snapshots – and some issues it was unfortunately not able to see. Anyway, during the week 2019/47 we have released three snapshot into the wild (1116, 1118 and 1119), containing those changes:

  • Mesa 19.2.4: fixes critical rendering issues from earlier Mesa 19.2.3. As this rendering issue did not happen on all graphics adapters, openQA had no chance of spotting it
  • Linux kernel 5.3.11
  • KDE Plasma 5.17.3
  • Subversion 1.13.0
  • binutils 2.33.1

The things being worked on include:

  • openssl 1.1.1d: will be part of snapshot 1121 and later)
  • rpm 4.15.0: the new python dependency generator is nasty, as it adds much more dependencies that were the before (probably a good thing), exposing new build cycles
  • Python 3.8
  • Rust 1.39.0: break Firefox and Thunderbird so far
  • Perl 5.30.1
  • libxml 2.9.10: breaks perl-XML-LibXSLT (on i586 only, invalid free() )
