GNOME, Notmuch update in Tumbleweed

December 15th, 2016 by

To state that not much has been happening in openSUSE Tumbleweed is an understatement as there were seven snapshot this week.

Life, however, is full of surprises and irony and this article just might end with a little.

The beginning of the week started with snapshot 20161208 that had a change that affects Python users. The update of python3-setuptools to version 30.2.0 dropped support for Python 3.2, which was released in February of 2011. The snapshot also provided an update to Kernel firmware 20161130 with patches affecting Intel Bluetooth.

The next snapshot, 20161209, updated most gstreamer packages to version 1.10.2, which brought Open Graphics Library related bugfixes and a security-relevant bugfix in the vmnc decoder. The text shaping package HarfBuzz updated to 1.3.4 and fixed vertical glyph origin in hb-ot-font and Vala’s update to 0.34.4 had some small bugfixes.

NetworkManager-openconnect 1.2.4 updated translations and fixed support for IPv6-only VPNs and updates to yast2-installation 3.2.11 and yast2-network 3.2.16 had crash fixes.

The updates to gstreamer continued in snapshot 20161210 with gstreamer-editing-services, gstreamer-rtsp-server and gstreamer-validate moving to version 1.10.2, which fixed mostly minor bugs. The snapshot also updated the Linux Kernel to 4.8.13. Python-packaging updated to version 16.8, which provided a fix for rendering and Wine updated to the 2.0 Release Candidate 1 that enhances Shader Model 5 operations.

Git, Kernels, LightDM, More update in Tumbleweed

December 8th, 2016 by

Many packages made it into openSUSE Tumbleweed snapshots this week and two minor kernel versions were just a couple of the several updates that landed in the repositories.

Eight snapshots this week brought both minor and major releases.

Topping the list of updates for snapshot 20161129 was the update to Light Display Manager 1.21.1, which added an Application Programming Interface (API) version to the greeter-daemon protocol for future enhancements.  Other updates in the snapshot include openVPN, which added a recommended utility for network and traffic protocols, and subpackages for systemd relevant for 32-bit users. Desktop manager xfdesktop updated to version 4.12.3 and introduced rotating wallpaper images if the images contain rotation information.

The programming language vala, which aims to bring modern programming language features to GNOME developers without imposing any additional runtime requirements, updated in the 20161129 and 20161201 snapshots.

Snapshot 20161201 brought the first kernel update of the week with version 4.8.11 and the kernel firmware was updated to 20161121. Tumbleweed user will be happy to see the amount of hplip subpackages added in this snapshot, which brings added support for several hp printers. Several K series subpackages from KDE received updates in the 20161201 snapshot.

The most interesting snapshot of the week probably arrived with snapshot 20161202.  In the snapshot, several Mesa 13.0.2 subpackages were updated that provided graphical fixes for enhancing Wayland, Vulkan and X11.
