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.

Beta 3 Release Updates FireFox, KDE Applications, VirtualBox

October 5th, 2016 by

The openSUSE Leap 42.2 Beta 3 was released today one day ahead of schedule and the last beta for 42.2 brought quite a few new versions for people to test.

VirtualBox was upgraded from version 5.0.24 in Beta 2 to version 5.1.4 and there were an enormous amount of fixes applied to this newer version, which was released in August.

KDE’s Plasma moved from its 5.7.95 beta version in Leap’s Beta 2 to version 5.8.0 in the Beta 3. Plasma 5.8 is new but the purpose of openSUSE Leap is to have well established packages and since Plasma 5.8 is a Long Term Support release, it made sense to have 5.8 in the distribution event though it is very new. Plasma 5.8 will be supported for 18 months, according to KDE’s release team. KDE Applications also have an update in the Beta 3 to version 16.08.1, which unifies the look of KDE and enhance the effects for users.

Firefox 49 was added to the Beta 3. Thunderbird’s has some security and edit fixes with version 45.3.0. Also in the new beta, YaST had storage and ruby updates and there was an installation fix for module crash in the newest yast2-installation 3.1.216 version.
