Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

As announced on various channels, OBS services have been moved to a new location on new hardware. So the last check-in we could do was on Wednesday, building, and QA done before the move yesterday and then publishing it. As we managed to get the timing pretty right (which was more based on luck than anything else; timings for build and QA are only very rough estimates) we managed to publish 6 snapshots since the last review. At the moment, we do not yet have a new snapshot building, as the service migration seems to have left a few services in limbo – e.g. openQA is, up to the moment of this writing, not able to sync snapshots from OBS. So we rather slow down than risk sending out untested stuff.

The six snapshots (0817, 0818, 0819, 0821, 0822, and 0823) delivered during the last week brought you these changes:

  • Mozilla Firefox 116.0.3
  • OpenVPN 2.6.6
  • Shadow 4.14.0
  • KDE Frameworks 5.109.0
  • Linux kernel 6.4.11
  • LibreOffice
  • GnuTLS 3.8.1
  • gpgme 1.22.0
  • PHP 8.2.9

As we are not building a new snapshot at the moment, the staging projects are getting filled up. We surely hope to be able to clean that up soon. The queue currently contains:

  • KDE Gear 23.08.0
  • Systemd 254.1: We are waiting for 254.2 due to identified performance regressions
  • Keylime 7.5.0
  • glibc fix for malloc: Enable merging of remainders in memalign, remove bin scanning from memalign
  • libproxy 0.5.3 (changing from 0.4.18): This is the rewrite maintained by Volkswagen Group
  • FMT 10: breaks mariadb boo#1213219 and ceph boo#1213217; help welcome
  • libxml2 2.11.x
  • doxygen 1.9.7 – breaks wxPython build
