Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

Another week has passed. There have been a few technical issues around the publishing of our snapshots. Two were flagged for release, but actually never made it to the mirrors. Turned out, kiwi renamed some of the live-images from *-i686-* to *-ix86-*. But nothing else knew about it. As we even have links on the web pointing to those image names, we opted to revert to the original name. So, due to this, we only release 3 snapshots (0604, 0609, and 0610; 0609 contained the changes of 0605 and 0607 – the ones that got not synced out).

The changes in these snapshots were:

  • GNOME 3.36.3 (sadly, upstream did not release a gnome-desktop update; this package would be responsible for the version number shown in the control center)
  • Mozilla Firefox 77.0.1
  • Libvirt 6.4.0
  • Transmission 3.00
  • KDE Plasma 5.19.0

Thins being worked on include:

  • KDE Applications 20.04.2
  • SQLite 3.32.2
  • Linux kernel 5.7.1
  • Mesa 20.1.0
  • RPM change: %{_libexecdir} is being changed to /usr/libexec. This exposes quite a lot of packages that abuse %{_libexecdir} and fail to build
  • openSSL 3.0
