Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

This week we ‘only’ managed to get out 5 snapshots. Over the weekend, we had a dracut submission in the mix that happened to break in a few scenarios, resulting in an incomplete initrd. Of course, we caught this in openQA and did not release those snapshots. In the end, we release snapshots 0428, 0501, 0502, 0503, and 0504.

the snapshots contained these major changes:

  • Poppler 22.04.0
  • cURL 7.83.0
  • elfutils 0.187
  • GNOME 42.1 (mutter and gnome-shell still pending)
  • pipewire 0.3.51
  • llvm 14.0.3

A little bit of movement in the staging areas, and an ‘old friend’ is back on the list. The current topics being worked on are:

  • Mozilla Firefox 100
  • Meson 0.62
  • gpg 2.3.6
  • Linux kernel 5.17.5
  • GCC 12.1 as the default compiler
  • some fdupes changes: aid with reproducible builds (order dups by name)
  • Python 3.10 as default interpreter (Staging:A for the curious ones)
