Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

This week (the last weekend) has been a bit of a challenge for many of our users, due to an ill-prepared sudo config change. It was attempted to closer align how sudo works on other distros (using user’s password instead of root’s) but the configuration was far from complete and made nobody able to sudo anymore (su still worked, luckily). A heartfelt apology if you were hit by that. The change was reverted on Monday (through the update channel) to get you back to the usual config asap. But of course, the week was not defined by that one incident. Tumbleweed has been rolling on steadily with daily snapshots (1104…1110).

The main changes delivered during this week were:

  • KDE Gear 22.08.3
  • Qt 5.15.7 (broke Deepin/qt5platform-plugins, I submitted a fix for that to the devel project)
  • Libvirt 8.9.0
  • SQLite 3.93.4
  • cmake 3.24.2
  • PostgreSQL 15.0 (final release, out of RC)
  • Mozilla Firefox 106.0.5
  • Linux kernel 6.0.7
  • GNU Make 4.4
  • git 2.38.1
  • gnome-shell & mutter 43.1
  • Mesa 22.2.3
  • KDE Plasma 5.26.3
  • gnutls 3.7.8
  • systemd 251.8

Quite the list that accumulated there over just one week. And of course, these are just the major changes.OBS reports for the last week: During this period 902 commits were added to packages in this project. Out of those commits, 714 were version updates

The staging projects are currently testing these updates:

  • icu 72.1 (nodejs fixes were submitted, needs retesting)
  • icewm 3.2.0
  • Linux kernel 6.0.8
  • Python (all versions): Fixes for CVE-2022-45061
  • postgresql10, 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15 – all bump to their latest minor version
  • rubygem-rspec 3.12.0: YaST is in the progress of catching up with the needed changes
  • FFmpeg-5 as default (ffmpeg-4 will stay around, and spec files can pin to it)
