GNOME 3.22 Streamlines Into Tumbleweed

September 23rd, 2016 by


Less than 48 hours from when GNOME’s release team unveiled version 3.22 (Karlsruhe), openSUSE Tumbleweed users are getting the full upstream experience of the latest GNOME.

Snapshot 20160921 made 3.22 available to user, but there were plenty of other snapshots during the week that brought new packages to Tumbleweed users.

Dominique Leuenberger, a member of the openSUSE release team, wrote that there were five snapshots this week in an email to developers on the openSUSE Factory Mailing List.

The Linux Kernel updated to 4.7.4 and VirtualBox updated a version in the 20160920 snapshot. Snapshot 20160914 updated KDE Frameworks to 5.26.0 and KDE Applications 16.08.1.

Even though Tumbleweed is built on GNU Composite Compiler 6.2.1, for user relying on GCC 5, snapshot 20160917 provided an update to GCC 5.4.1 and there was a major version update for Vim, which is the first major update for the project in a decade and updated from version 7.4.2045 to version 8.0.3.

    Played the video and …

    Is it actually pronounced “Ga Nome” ???

    In Canadian English, the G in Gnome is silent, but I wonder if there is a deliberate attempt by the ga-nome community to distinguish it by pronouncing it incorrectly?

      I don’t know about proper English pronounciation, but I think it is better so, because in most other languages, the G is pronounced…

      I speak French and German, and I’m sure most of my friends wouldn’t understand what “nome” is :)

  2. nice but no wifi….

  4. It’d be nice to see it hit Leap 42.2 too but I don’t see any indication that it will, unfortunately. Am I wrong?
