IMG_0321Tumbleweed had four snapshots since our last weekly review, upgraded to a newer Kernel and has the latest LibreOffice 5, while Leap’s roadmap was published and version 42 is a trending topic on the Factory mailing list.

Tumbleweed – TW

Tumbleweed 20150807 snapshot last Friday gave many users an update they had been anticipating for a while; LibreOffice 5!

The updated version gives users improved user interface and design. LibreOffice 5 has a new AutoCorrect extension to simplify Emoji and other Unicode character input using de facto standard Emoji shortcodes, and other keywords surrounded by colons. It is now possible to crop an image with the mouse. Crop image, Format ▸ Image ▸ Crop menu entry and Graphic toolbar.

LensFun updated to 0.3.1 and improved performance when used with 32-bit float image buffers and introduced automated testing. It has new interchangeable lenses for Canon Fujifilm, Nikon, Olympus Panasonic, Samsung and Sony models.

In the 20150810 snapshot, the Linux Kernel was updated to 4.1.4, which is trailing the newest 4.1.5 stable kernel, but expect the newest stable kernel soon.
