Mesa, Kernel, GNOME, KDE apps update in Tumbleweed
2. Oct 2016
Another week and another five snapshots for openSUSE’s rolling release Tumbleweed produced updates for openSSL, GNOME 3.22, Mesa and the Linux Kernel.
Dominique Leuenberger, a core member of the openSUSE release team, informed subscribers of the openSUSE Factory Mailing List about some of the packages that were updated during the week and some packages users can expect over the next couple of weeks.
Snapshot 20160928 produced an update for openSSL to 1.0.2j, which patched a high severity Online Certificate Status Protocol vulnerability. The same snapshot also gave users the updated 4.7.5 Linux Kernel.
The previous snapshot 20160927 provided several new YaST updates and some xf86 updates for XServer. GStreamer plugins, Perl and fonts-config were updated in the 20160926 snapshot.
Mozilla Firefox updated to a new major version with version 49.0.1 in the 20160925 snapshot. Amarok, ark, dolphin and konsole also made it into the repositories during this snapshot.
Snapshot 20160924 provided the largest update of the week. Mesa was updated to version 12.0.3 and there were several applications updates for both KDE and GNOME. Ostree was also updated to version 2016.10.
