dotsgeeko1November brought openSUSE Tumbleweed users an early holiday gift with 24 snapshots of new software and four updated Linux Kernels.

The continuous snapshot streak of Tumbleweed updates ended with snapshot 20161123, which brought Kernel 4.8.10.

More updates were in the 20161123 snapshot such as updates of yast2-storage to version 3.2.1 and Yast2-bootloader to version 3.2.10.

The streak-breaking snapshot, 20161125, brought several goodies like GTK 3.22.4, which saw Wayland patch dropped due to a fix upstream, and an update to KDE’s Plasma 5.8.4, which included several small but important bug fixes.

Oracle’s Virtualbox updated to 5.1.10 in the 20161125 snapshot and provided fixes for various issues to improve the graphical user interface. ImageMagick’s updates to version 6.9.6.5 provided a fix to improve data compression decoding. Web browser Epiphany added the missing F1 keyboard shortcut to open help with an update in Tumbleweed to version 3.22.3.

Updates found in the repositories with the 20161128 snapshot added some upstream patches for Bash and Wine updated winetricks in version 1.9.24.

Snapshot 20161122 updated Mozilla Thunderbird to 45.5 and advanced text editor Vim to 8.0.92.

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. (more…)
