This past week’s openSUSE Tumbleweed snapshots have produced several fixes and improvements, including some for KDE users and those using AMD hardware.

Mesa 17.1.4 was among the most interesting packages in snapshot  20170710.

The update to Mesa brought an AMD drivers fix for the proper generation of Surrogate ID (SID) Tables and an RadeonSI improvements related to the Polaris 12 chip. Grep’s update to 3.1 makes it search for plain-text data sets faster. The snapshot also prepared for the 4.12 Linux Kernel with an update to linux-glibc-devel 4.12; Linux Kernel is expected to land in Tumbleweed before the end of the week. A fix for a “stupid” crash, according to the change log, with verbose mode and tone generation came with the update of mpg123 1.25.1 and the Newt library for color text mode and widget based user interfaces received improved handling of long strings.

Snapshot 20170709 brought very small changes to Wine and AqBanking. Wine 2.12 had performance improvements with async I/O and started MSI user interface support with the update to the newest version.
