Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

The last week of the year, and the last day of the year, are coming to an end. Tumbleweed had a small dip, as the last two snapshots that moved to openQA had to be stopped from being published. Nevertheless, we still managed to publish 6 snapshots before heading out to the new-year celebrations (1223…1228).

The snapshots contained those relevant changes:

  • Qemu 6.2.0
  • Boost 1.78.0
  • gimp 2.10.30
  • gpg 2.3.4
  • Pango 1.50.3
  • sssd 2.6.3
  • Default ruby interpreter switched from 2.7 to 3.0

The staging projects are mostly, but not completely, empty. The few ones in use are testing these items:

  • Wayland 1.20 (Seems to cause some bugs, see
  • Linux kernel 5.15.12
  • Ruby 3.1. A direct attempt to switch to Ruby 3.1, and removing Ruby 2.7 and Ruby 3.0 in one go. Most likely it will be phased a little bit (e.g. Vagrant is not Ruby 3.1 compatible yet)
  • zstd 1.5.1: breaks build of zchunk and libzypp
  • Enabling the build of python310-* modules; the move of the default python3 provider to python310 could follow soon after
