TumbleweedDuring the past week, Tumbleweed had three snapshots and two packages updated to major versions.

Perl’s update to version 5.22 in the 20150828 snapshot was perhaps the biggest news for TW this week, which was evident in the tread that followed the snapshot release.

The libinput library that handles input devices in Wayland compositors and generic X.Org input drivers upgraded to its first major version in the 20150828 snapshot, which moved from version 0.21 to 1.0. Python-cryptography was another version that updated to version 1.0, which was previously 0.9.3.

In the 20150829 snapshot, LibreOffice updated to version and worth mentioning is ExifTool, which is for reading, writing, and manipulating image, audio, and video metadata, updated to version 10.

In the latest snapshot 20150831, the application security tool AppArmor updated to version 20150828.

Users anticipating the release of Plasma 5.4 will have to wait a little longer; KDE’s newest version is in openSUSE Factory and progress is being made, but there are some tweaks that need to be made before it is released in a TW snapshot.

The 5.4 version is also expected to be released in openSUSE Leap, which will have its Milestone 2 release tomorrow.
