Six Tumbleweed snapshots follow Leap milestone release

July 30th, 2015 by

LibreOffice 5.0 is expected soon in openSUSE Tumbleweed.

openSUSE’s rolling release Tumbleweed posted six snapshot updates this past week following the release of Leap’s first milestone.

The only day a snapshot was not posted was on Sunday, so quite a few updates made it onto users’ computers this past week.

Tumbleweed followed the release of the Leap milestone by updating the Linux Kernel to 4.1.3, which is the latest stable version. Oracle’s VirtualBox was updated to 5.0.0 from 4.3.28.

There was an update to the YaST spec for the 20150727 snapshot. GNOME had some minor updates that fixed a crash when reading invalid backlight values. KDE had some minor updates as well and some Plasma 5 addons.

AppArmor updated to 2.10 and received several development updates. The cache time stamp issue was fixed and several memory leak/crashes bugs were fixed for libapparmor.

There was a fix for systemd on Xen and python-sip updated.

LibreOffice 5.0 is approaching soon, according to its roadmap and should make it into Tumbleweed soon, while perl and xfce still need to be fixed before being released in a Tumbleweed snapshot.

Both comments and pings are currently closed.

    What about VirtualBox 5.0?

    • D

      With KVM, why do you need Virtualbox anymore?

      KVM is easy to setup, handles almost all OS’ gracefully and has a smaller footprint without the need for kludgy tools.

    A lot of thanks to all of the development team of openSUSE for the great job being done. Another great thank for the maintainer of the package WICKED and the developer of this highly useful piece of software. WICKED can now handle both wired and wireless network interfaces. Until today I relied on Network Manager for wireless connection before finally making an attempt with Wicked. And it works.Hurraaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

    openSUSE Linux is simply unbreakable. Have a lot fun GUYS.

    Thank you very much.

    What about a fix for broken FileZilla, please?

    • Roman

      The fix for FileZilla is coming in the next snapshot:

        If your using FTP for PC Networking configure your FTP Server in Yast and use FileZilla as the client it runs like a Swiss watch and a dream without one issue at all.

    Why is an text about the timeline of Tumbleweed and Leap decorated with a graphical display of the LibreOffice timeline at such a prominent place? Just because of the last sentence? Or did you want to show the assumed timelines of Leap and/or Tumbleweed?

    @Huw I’ll ask about the FileZilla and see what the status is.

    More info about VirtualBox 5.0 can be found at https://www.oracle.com/corporate/pressrelease/oracle-vm-virtualbox-5-070915.html.

    Thank you for the complement @Eliasse and thank you for using openSUSE.

    As for the LibreOffice image, you answered it with your last question @Werner.
