Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

Last week, I was attending the SUSE Labs Conference last week and had to skip writing the weekly review. As many SUSE devs were there too, the expectation was to get fewer changes anyway during week 17. Consequently, I am spanning two weeks again today and will be covering the nine snapshots (0419, 0421, 0423, 0425…0430) released during this period.

The most relevant changes delivered were:

  • Linux kernel 6.8.7 & 6.8.8
  • SETools 4.5.0
  • libxml 2.12.6
  • LLVM 18.1.4
  • Python 3.11.9 & 3.12.3
  • Mesa 24.0.5
  • Mozilla Firefox 125.0.2
  • SQLite 3.45.3

Having some engineers together at the Labs Conference also allowed them to directly exchange ideas and work on some of the things in staging. Simon and I have worked on dbus-broker and made some good progress, but we have not yet reached the end goal. Similarly for other things in the staging areas. The most interesting changes being prepared are:
