Update to Kernel 4.14 Among This Week’s Tumbleweed Snapshots

November 23rd, 2017 by

The past week brought new features to openSUSE Tumbleweed with a snapshot that included Linux Kernel 4.14. New features like HDMI Consumer Electronics Control support for Raspberry Pi and the merging of Heterogeneous Memory Management to the mainline this Long-Term Support Kernel are promising.

openSUSE’s rolling distribution produced four openSUSE Tumbleweed snapshots this week and brought many other goodies.

Topping off the latest snapshot, 20171121, was a service release of mono-core 5.4.1. Mono,  which is the open source implementation of Microsoft’s .NET Framework based on the ECMA standards for C# and the Common Language Runtime, provided a handful of bugfixes. Code-cleaning in setup.py was made available with the update to python-ldap 2.5.2. The administration and debugging tool for the XFS file system had an enormous amount of updates with the xfsprogs 4.13.1 version, which has new extent lookup helpers.

The 20171120 snapshot, which provided Linux Kernel 4.14, had updated versions for the IP lookup program GeoIP and the expat library. GeoIP 1.6.11 provided a fix for the use of a NULL pointer when opening a corrupt database with GeoIP_open and expat 2.2.5 provided several fixes including a security fix. Text editor GNU nano introduced the ability to record and replay keystrokes with version 2.9.0 and python-setuptools 36.7.2 fixed duplicate test discovery on Python 3.
