Stable Sailing For Tumbleweed Snapshots This Week

May 16th, 2019 by

Developers Can Make Use of GCC 9, QEMU 4, Wireshark 3

This week produced a smooth and rapid release of stable openSUSE Tumbleweed snapshot as the rolling release produced a total of five stable or trending stable snapshots, according to the Tumbleweed snapshot reviewer.

The production of snapshots provided both large and small package updates with GNU Compiler Collection 9, Wireshark 3.0.1, QEMU 4.0, KDE Applications 19.04.1, GNOME 3.32.2 and KDE Plasma 5.15.5 rounding out the largest package updates this week.

The latest Tumbleweed snapshot, 20190514, hailed in twenty recorded bug fixes for KDE Applications 19.04.1, which include improvements to Kontact, Ark, Cantor, Dolphin, Kdenlive, Spectacle and Umbrello. Among the highlighted fixes were a crash in KMail’s text sharing plugin that was fixed and regressions in the video editor Kdenlive were corrected. The Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (alsa) 1.1.9 dropped several patches and fixed a rate plugin for comparisons as well as added support for GCC’s LinkTimeOptimization. The VLC audio visual decoder package dav1d 0.3.1 provided arm optimization for Multiple Sequence Alignment Compressor (MSAC). The package that has the implementation of HTTP/2 and its header compression algorithm HPACK in C, nghttp2, fixed a compilation against modern LibreSSL in the 1.38.0 version update. Tcsh 6.21.00 ported patches and the 4.2.15 version of yast2-storage-ng worked on the partitioner to prevent edition of block devices that are part of a multi-device Btrfs. The snapshot is currently trending at a 96 rating, according to the Tumbleweed snapshot reviewer.
