Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

This week we released only 5 snapshots, but one was hefty in size and we needed the extra time for the mirrors to settle again and get the bandwidth back under control. The large snapshot was due to the change in the default compiler: Tumbleweed has been rebuilt entirely using GCC 13. The released snapshots were numbered 0316, 0317, 0318, 0319, and 0321.

The most relevant changes in these snapshots were:

  • Linux kernel 6.2.6
  • transmission 4.0.2
  • KDE Plasma 5.27.3
  • systemd 253.1
  • GCC 13 is now used as the default compiler

As we needed to slow down check-ins, naturally the staging projects are well filled up now. You can expect these changes to reach you soon:

  • GNOME 44
  • Linux kernel 6.2.8
  • cmake 3.26.0
  • cURL 8.0.1
  • LibreOffice 7.5.2
  • Samba 4.18.0
  • LLVM 16
  • openSSL 3.1.0

One extra reminder for i586 users now: next week marks the end of i586 packages in the regular openSUSE Tumbleweed repositories. Should you still run Tumbleweed on such an old machine, you can keep on doing so using the separate port (repositories at
