Plasma 5.10.3, Ceph, Git and LibreOffice are among the top package to arrive in openSUSE Tumbleweed this week.

A total of six openSUSE Tumbleweed snapshots arrived in the repositories this week and one of the snapshots includes a new beta version of AqBanking for banking.

AqBanking, which is the successor of OpenHBCI2, is a free library for online-banking and abides by the open German Online Banking Standard. The 20170629 snapshot updated Aqbanking to the 5.7.6 Beta version, which fixes an unclean Transport Layer Security connection shutdown by HBCI servers.

The most recent snapshot, 20170703, had two packages. It updated the Linux Kernel to 4.11.8, which fixed ldisc crash on reopened tty. Kernel 4.11.7 was updated earlier in the week in snapshot 20170628 and had multiple insertions and deletions. Snapshot 20170703 also delivered nano 2.8.5 and now avoids some flickering when resizing the screen while in the file browser.

Snapshot 20170702 brought much of the Plasma 5.10.3 packages that include feature refinements and new modules to complete the desktop experience; the release also Introduced KDE_NO_GLOBAL_MENU env variable to disable global menu, which allows the run of specific Qt applications with global menu disabled in case of issues. Besides the KDE packages, yast2 3.2.40 added support for the new Expert Partitioner and yast2-apparmor 3.2.1 fixed the name of apparmor systemd service.

The 20170701 snapshot had just three packaged changed. GraphicsMagick had a patch for CVE-2017-8350, efibootmgr forcefully enabled Position Independent Executables and mailman had a fix.

Snapshot 20170630 had a few point releases with Mozilla Thunderbird 52.2.1 getting a fix for Problems with Gmail. NetworkManager-applet updated from version 1.4.6 to 1.8.2 and enhances secure the connections that use TLS, TTLS and PEAP authentications. Git 2.13.2 made the “run-command” API implementation more robust and poppler 0.56.0 fix crashes on multiple broken files. Ceph version 12.1.0 also became available in the snapshot.

Besides the new beta version of Aqbanking in snapshot 20170629, xdg-desktop-portal 0.8 and xdg-desktop-portal-gtk 0.7 provided the most package changes in the snapshot.

Beginning the week, snapshot 20170628 brought a major version of the GNU Debugger gdb 8.0 and tons of weblate translations for the desktop-translations package. GNOME’s personal information management application, evolution 3.24.3, now allows the selection of the same source and destination calendar in Copy To Calendar. Gstreamer 1.12.1 fixed various crashes and regression issues and LibreOffice provided some translation updates and theme changes.
