Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

This week, Tumbleweed made the impossible possible: we have published 8 daily snapshots in just 7 days. Of course, the timing was a bit on our side: the snapshot that started building yesterday went so quickly through build and QA that it already managed to be published. In any case, the daily streak continued all along (now at 22 – a new all-time record).

The snapshots were numbered 0818 through 0825 and contained these changes:

  • debuginfod: The package now recommends debuginfod-profile, which contains the configuration and URL to the server. Your gdb experience should be much smoother. If bandwidth is an issue when debugging, you can uninstall/block debuginfod-profile.
  • timezone 2022c: We’re coming close to the dates where countries switch summer to winter time, and as usual, some countries change their rules
  • KDE Gear 22.08.0
  • Linux kernel 5.19.2
  • Systemd 251.4
  • Xen 4.16.2
  • Mesa 22.1.5 & 22.1.7
  • Boost 1.80

In stagings, we are busy preparing these updates and changes:

  • Meson 0.63.1 (0826+)
  • Shadow 4.12.3 (0826+)
  • Mozilla Firefox 104.0 & Thunderbird 102.2
  • Glibc 2.36: all build issues have been resolved. Final spring towards openQA results
  • fmt 9.0: Breaks ceph and zxing-cpp
  • Make: Add support for job server using named pipes. A few packages have been observed not to be parallel build compatible with this
