Tumbleweed updates bash, KDE, new Kernel coming soon

July 20th, 2016 by

There is a lot of excitement around the latest openSUSE Tumbleweed snapshots because of new KDE features and the newest stable Linux Kernel, which is expected in the next snapshot.

Snapshot 20160715 brought all those KDE updates Tumbleweed users were looking forward to like Framework 5.24.0, Plasma 5.7.0 and Applications 16.04.3. Breeze icons have a new feature and there is now jump list actions for tasks within an application available with KRunner thanks to the new Plasma. There is plenty of other new features with Plasma 5.7, so check out the video to see what is new.

Another snapshot expected today will likely update the kernel to 4.6.4.

The 20160716 snapshot brought updates in the repositories for bash, glibc and GNU Compiler Collection 6, which fixes compile-time issues in the C++ front end.

There was also updates to autoyast2 and python-requests in the 20160716 snapshot and three libraries were also updated.

    Will the patterns be updated, so that if you choose a Server pattern the Yast installer appropriatly sizes the /svr partition?

    Run into this problem in a previos release (13.2?) when running the box as an owncloud server.
