Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

This week, we released 6 snapshots. One snapshot hit reached the (negative) record of most failed tests in one run. The issue was simply that YaST was unable to start, which for rather obvious reasons impacts almost all tests. This could swiftly be corrected and the following snapshot already worked again. The 6 published snapshots were 0512, 0513, 0515, 0516, 0517, and 0518.

The main changes included in those snapshots are:

  • KDE Gear 22.04.1
  • KDE Frameworks 5.94.0
  • GStreamer 1.20.2
  • Linux kernel 5.17.7
  • PostgreSQL 14.3
  • bind 9.18.2
  • NetworkManager 1.38.0: NOTE: Users upgrading with –no-recommends or recommends disabled in the zypp config, might lose wifi connection. Install NetworkManager-wifi (that specific split is under review in Bugzilla)

The main changes being worked on in Stagings are currently:

  • Setting build flags to FORTIFY_SOURCE=3 (starting from snapshot 0519). No full rebuild will be done for this, the packages will get that feature on their next natural rebuild
  • Perl 5.34.1
  • Linux kernel 5.17.9
  • Mozilla Firefox 101
  • Mesa 22.1.0
  • Python 3.10 as the default interpreter
