Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

Another week is over and many people had the pleasure to meet in person at the openSUSE conference ’22 this year. I hear it was a great event, with lots of fun. Exactly, what the openSUSE community stands for. And as usual, the same openSUSE community also works without interruption on the rolling release: openSUSE Tumbleweed. In this week, we have seen daily snapshots (0602…0608).

The main changes included in these snapshots include:

  • Bind 9.18.3
  • Poppler 22.06.0
  • libdrm 2.4.111: libkms has been removed
  • Linux kernel 5.18.1 & 5.18.2
  • Mozilla Firefox 101.0
  • Mesa 22.1.1
  • Wine 7.10

Looking at the current staging projects and the release schedule of some upstream, next week promises to be interesting. We are currently working on:

  • openssl 1.1.1o
  • KDE Plasma 5.25.0
  • KDE Gear 22.04.2
  • Systemd 251.2
  • SELinux 3.4
  • Python 3.10 as the default interpreter: all build fails should be addressed and first, preliminary openQA results looked good. Almost there!
  • krb5 1.20.0: breaks samba
  • Sphinx 5: breaks qemu
