Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,
Dominique has been enjoying a vacation these last two weeks and left Tumbleweed in my hands. Thanks to all who’ve helped out as I got to grips with holding the reins solo for the first time.
These two weeks also saw the long Easter weekend. That said, we still managed to release 5 snapshots (0325, 0329, 0330, 0401 and 0406) during this fortnight, with 0408 currently in testing and an 0409 likely to be checked in tonight.
The changes delivered these weeks included:
* SELinux 3.2 (now also used by default in MicroOS) * transactional-update 3.3.4 * A large amount of YaST updates * Mozilla Firefox 87.0 * git 2.31.1 * kernel 5.11.11 * Mesa 20.3.5 with a large number of fixes * MicroOS GNOME Desktop reaching [BETA] quality
The future, near or far, will bring those updates:
* systemd v246.13 with cgroupsv2 enabled by default (Currently being tested in 0408) * libvirt 7.2.0 (Currently being tested in 0408) * GNOME 40 (Currently being needled, hopefully will be included in 0409) * KDE Plasma 5.21.4 * LibreOffice 188.8.131.52 * nodejs 15.14.0 * gstreamer 1.18.4 * Further MicroOS GNOME Desktop improvements * Python 3.9 modules: besides python36-FOO and python38-FOO, we are testing to also shop python39-FOO modules; we already have the interpreter after all. Python 3.8 will remain the default for now. * UsrMerge is progressing well, thanks to Ludwig for his continued work here * GCC 10.3.0 * GCC 11 as the default compiler
Have a lot of fun!
