Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

There seems to be no stopping Tumbleweed. It has again been rolling at full speed, with 7 snapshots (1125…1201) released this week. As usual, some smaller, some larger ones.

Let’s dive right in and see what changes have been delivered:

  • Icewm 3.2.2
  • VLC 3.0.18
  • Ruby 3.1.3: There was an issue that ruby extensions are newly looked for in vendor_ruby/3.1.0/x86_64-linux-gnu, where the ‘-gnu’ part is new. All ruby packages in Tumbleweed have been rebuilt to follow this change
  • SQLite 3.40.0
  • Meson 0.64.1
  • Python setuptools 65.6.3
  • gawk 5.2.1
  • libgcrypt 1.10.1: MD5 is disallowed in FIPS mode now
  • Systemd 252.2
  • LibreOffice 7.4.3RC2
  • Bash 5.2.12
  • KDE Plasma 5.26.4
  • Cryptsetup 2.6.0
  • Linux kernel 6.0.10
  • Tcl/Tk 8.6.13
  • ffmpeg has been switched to use version 5.x by default; ffmpeg-4 is still available and used by some packages

As that list got so long, it’s no surprise that the staging projects do not carry a lot of changes to be tested at the moment – not a lot, but still some, namely:

  • rubygem-rspec 3.12.0: The remaining YaST fixes have been incoming and if nothing new comes up, this should be shipped next week
  • Podman 4.3.1: fails the openQA tests
  • Python pytest 7.2.0
  • Switch to openSSL 3: tracked in Staging:N, main failures are nodejs18, nodejs19, openssh, mariadb

And I’m sure we will see many more changes that developers and packagers are currently preparing, but that has not yet been submitted.
