Tumbleweed Gets Kernel 4.10.1, Mesa 17, Python 3.6

March 2nd, 2017 by

The joy and experimentation of Hack Week didn’t keep openSUSE Tumbleweed from continuing to roll.

Since the last news article on Tumbleweed two weeks ago, there have been eight snapshots featuring new software packages.

The most recent snapshot to land in the repositories was snapshot 20170228, which provided less than a handful of packages.

Snapshots 20170227 delivered the latest stable Linux Kernel 4.10.1. GStreamer 1.10.4 provided various fixes for crashes, assertions, deadlocks and memory leaks in the snapshot, and python-setuptools 34.2.0 had a lengthy list of changes, which also dropped support for python 2.6 and 3.2.

In snapshots 20170226,  Speex, a patent-free audio compression format that aims to lower the barrier of entry for voice applications by providing a free alternative to expensive proprietary speech codecs, officially released its 1.2 version in Tumbleweed. Flatpak 0.8.3 version included backports of the updated OpenGL support from master and in combination with the work in the runtime allows Flatpak to work out of the box with out-of-tree OpenGL drivers, including the nvidia driver.

Ceph, Git, YaST, kernel update in Tumbleweed

August 24th, 2016 by

openSUSE Tumbleweed had another abundant week of snapshots.

Four Tumbleweed snapshots were released since the last article and the snapshot of the week, 20160816, brought users a new version of gtk3 (3.20.8). Updated in the repositories for this snapshot was an updated version of yast2-auth-client (3.3.10). Cairo graphics fixed several bugs and Apache2 removed the omc xml config because the change log states it is “useless nowdays.”

Snapshot 20160817 has several updates for the scalable storage platform ceph, which added an ability to reduce the constraints on resources required to build ceph and ceph-test packages. Git updated to version 2.9.3 and glib2 had several subpackages updated as did gnome-desktop. This snapshot caused quite a bit of chatter on the openSUSE Factory mailing list and serves as a reminder for people using openSUSE Tumbleweed to subscribed to the mailing list so they are aware of the updates.
