Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

It’s the week before openSUSE Conference, when all through the world, contributors get ready to travel. People might be busy with their final preparations to meet at the conference next week, and prepare their slides for the talks, but nothing can stop them from keeping Tumbleweed rolling. This week, we have received 5 snapshots (0613, 0614, 0617, 0618, and 0619)

The most relevant updates included were:

  • libxml 2.12.8
  • Ruby 3.3.3
  • VLC 3.0.21, see
  • Mesa 24.0.9, 24.1.0 & 24.1.1: Mesa 24 brought some graphical glitches on AMD/.ATI graphic cards, which we could not catch in openQA. A (mostly) fixed version was published in the update channel to shorten the time)
  • Mozilla Firefox 127.0
  • KDE Gear 24.05.1
  • Linux kernel 6.9.4 & 6.9.5

Staging projects are currently testing the integration of these changes:

  • KDE Plasma 6.1
  • NodeJS 22.3.0
  • Perl 5.40.0
  • transactional-update: enable soft reboot; see
  • Pytest 8.2
  • dbus-broker: some networking issue after upgrades left to work out
  • GCC 14: phase 2: use gcc14 as the default compiler – lots of help needed:

With all this, I am looking forward to seeing many of you at the openSUSE conference in Nuremberg next week!
