Tumbleweed Snapshots Update Fonts, Perl, Python Packages

April 27th, 2017 by

openSUSE Tumbleweed snapshots this week gave many newer versions of Perl and Python packages, but several other packages were updated in the repositories including some open fonts.

Google and Adobe fonts were updated in snapshots 20170424 and 20170420 with google-croscore-fonts and adobe-sourcehansans-fonts being added to the repositories respectively.

Besides the google-croscore-fonts in snapshots 20170424, users can get a fix for the CD/DVD burning software Brasero, which provided a patch for Grub2 that fixes builds with the GNU Composite Compilers, and kdebase4-workspace offers a diff to fix an error reported by GCC7, which should be helpful as Tumbleweed works closer to adapt the newest GCC. The snapshot also delivered a patch for VirtualBox that will provide an eventual Application Programming Interface change for the release of Leap 42.3. (more…)

Kernels Becoming Tumbleweed Norm, Grub 2 Gets Release Candidate

February 16th, 2017 by

Two Linux Kernels per week in openSUSE Tumbleweed is becoming the norm as the rolling release is providing daily snapshots of new software that are closely aligned with upstream development.

Kernel 4.9.8 and 4.9.9 were released in the 20170208 and 20170212 snapshots respectively and the later brought a fix for a Btrfs system call.

Beside the 4.9.8 Kernel in the first week’s snapshot, 20170208, Mesa users will be happy to see version 13.0.4 had a specfile fix for build configuration for ARM, Power PC and s390 architectures. Gimp 2.8.20 made the color selection of the paint tool more robust and updated translations for a number of European languages. Several other packages were updated in the repositories from this snapshot and python3-kiwi 9.0.2 and vim 8.0.311 provided the most fixes.

Snapshot 20170209 brought the first major release of libosinfo (Operating System information database) in Tumbleweed with version 1.0.0, which focuses on metadata about operating systems and provides a single place to manage it in a virtualized environment.  F Virtual Window Manager (FVWM) 2.6.7 added a handful of new features and removed several other features like  GTK 1.x support.

Plasma 5.9.1 came in the 20170211 snapshot and AppArmor 2.11.0 update provided multiple improvements and fixes, one of which fixed an issue that Kernel 4.8 and above affected Apparmor policy enforcement. Libssh hackers made use of their time at FOSDEM and squashed bugs, which came in the libssh 0.7.4. (more…)
