Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

During this week we have released ‘only’ three Snapshot (0919, 0922 and 0923). But some of you might have noticed that we are finally sending the ‘build fail notification mails’ again, helping you be more laid back, not having to look at your packages all the time, as the bot does that for you. Unfortunately, due to some OBS issue, this feature was broken for a little while.

The 3 snapshots we published contained these updates for you:

  • KDE Frameworks 5.74.0
  • Mesa 20.1.8
  • firewalld 0.9.0
  • Linux kernel 5.8.10
  • Perl 5.30.3

Not as much change as in previous weeks and the list of staged changes is thus largely unchanged. Currently there are:

  • GNOME 3.36.6
  • openssl 1.1.1h
  • openssh packaging layout change: ‘openssh’ will be a meta package, pulling in openssh-server and openssh-clients. This will allow for fainer grained installation/removal of the server part where needed
  • KDE Plasma 5.20 (currently beta being tested)
  • glibc 2.32
  • binutils 2.35
  • gettext 0.21
  • bison 3.7.1
  • SELinux 3.1
  • openssl 3.0
