Tumbleweed Delivers Incredible Snapshot Streak, Newest Kernel

November 23rd, 2016 by

News of Linux releases are getting most of the headlines during November while snapshots of openSUSE Tumbleweed have subtly been flying under the radar.

Other than Nov. 3 and Nov. 6, openSUSE Tumbleweed had updated software snapshots released every day this month.

The last update on news.opensuse.org included snapshot 20161108 and the 13 snapshots that have followed that have included hundreds of new packages.

The streak will continue past the most recent snapshot that is list 20161121. Snapshot  20161121 updated the Linux kernel to version 4.8.9. The snapshot also includes an update in the repositories for CMake 3.7.0, which adds several new modules and commands.

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.

New Leap Beta Adds Plasma 5.8 Beta

September 22nd, 2016 by

iconThe release of openSUSE Leap 42.2 Beta 2 today added several new minor versions including KDE’s first Long Term Support version for Plasma.

The highly anticipated release of Plasma 5.8 LTS will be the default desktop for openSUSE Leap 42.2 and its beta (5.7.95), which was just released last week, is in openSUSE’s newest beta release.

“The quality of the distribution at this point looks quite good,” said Ludwig Nussel, Leap’s release manager. “Since Plasma 5.8 is still a beta version, it deserves more attention and thorough testing. We can help upstream to release a good 5.8.0 and get a decent quality default desktop in return.”

KDE and openSUSE slightly adjusted release schedules to be able to include Plasma 5.8 in the release of openSUSE Leap 42.2 because Plasma 5.8 is an LTS and complement one another as well as appeal to conservative adapters. (more…)
