Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

Week 7 of the year – 7 days have passed since the last review, BUT we only released 6 snapshots since then. The reason is only timing though: the 7th snapshot is still in QA and, looking at the current results, is likely to be published later today. So no need to be worried. This review will cover snapshots 0210…0215.

The most exciting changes delivered during this week were:

  • Mesa 22.3.5
  • PostgreSQL 15.2
  • XFCE 4.18.2
  • Node.JS 19.6.0
  • KDE Frameworks 5.103.0
  • KDE P,lasma 5.27.0
  • NetworkManager 1.42.0
  • gnome-shell & mutter 43.3
  • Rust 1.67.1

Most of the stagings we currently have are longer-living and seem to take some more effort. Everybody is invited to help push them forward. The most relevant changes that are currently staged include:

  • openSSL 3.0.8 in Staging:A (regression detected)
  • Binutils 2.40 in Staging:B – causes a few builds to fail
  • Switch to Ruby 3.2 in Staging:H – YaST as the main consumer is almost ready. Almost!
  • Python 3.11 module enablement in Staging:M – Builds look good so far, 1 build cycle introduced
  • Gcc 13 as distro compiler in Staging:Gcc7
  • In Staging:L we just collect random things breaking other stuff, like e.g:
    • gpg2 2.4.0 – breaks gpgme:qt
    • Podman 4.4.1: fails the openQA tests
  • Samba 4.17.5
  • cURL 7.88.0
