Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

This week, we had to hold back two snapshots again after a long time. 0120 and 0121 were tested but considered too risky to send out (issues with transactional-updates and microos-tools detected). So, instead, you only got five snapshots this week (0119, 0122, 0123, 0124, and 0125).

The main changes delivered during this week were:

  • Linux kernel 6.1.7 & 6.1.8
  • GCC 13.0.1
  • Mozilla Firefox 109.0
  • IceWM 3.3.0 & 3.3.1
  • LLVM 15.0.7
  • LibreOffice
  • libxmlb: the first lib in the repo with hwcaps enabled subpackage: libxmlb2-x86-64-v3, Nothing triggers auto-installation of those packages yet. That is a feature to be worked out yet.
  • GNOME now identifies as 43.1 in its control center
  • Dracut 059
  • Libvirt 9.0.0
  • Wine 8.0 final release

The following week is difficult to predict. As you might have heard, Hackweek is going on. Some resources thus deviate and there might be fewer submissions – or more if things go nicely and new stuff appears sooner. In any case, the Staging projects currently hold these items:

  • KDE Plasma 5.27 beta (5.26.90)
  • GStreamer 1.22.0
  • Staging:H still tests ruby 3.2 as the new default (some yast modules failing to build)
  • Staging:L holds some packages breaking others stuff taking more time, like boost, gpg2, and ant
  • Staging:Gcc7 tests the impact of using GCC 13 as the default compiler
