Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

For Tumbleweed it has become the norm to deliver snapshots daily – and we are not making any exception to this in week 46. We have again published 7 snapshots (1111…1117), with the latest one just published moments ago. From a staging point of view, it seems like things are being tested much better lately before being submitted: almost everything passes through staging in a day or so (this is not an invitation to change this – more a Thank you to the respective maintainers making things the way they are)

The 7 snapshots brought you these changes:

  • KDE Frameworks 5.100.0
  • LLVM 15.0.4
  • freerdp 2.8.1
  • Bash 5.2.9
  • Linux kernel 6.0.8
  • Shadow 4.13
  • IceWM 3.2.0
  • Mozilla Firefox 107
  • systemd 252.1
  • Python (all versions): Fixes for CVE-2022-45061
  • postgresql10, 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15 – all bump to their latest minor version

As things go so quickly through the staging projects, it’s much harder to predict what we will receive during the next week. The things that are in work for a bit longer and are thus already known are:

  • Pipewire 0.3.60
  • rubygem-rspec 3.12.0: YaST is in the progress of catching up with the needed changes
  • Switch default from ffmpeg4 to ffmpeg5 (opencv3 is the last package missing)
  • Switch to openSSL 3 (Status can be tracked in Staging:N)
