Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,
Unfortunately, we had to dedicate a lot of OBS resources to openSUSE Leap 42.1, which has been moved from openSUSE:42 (which was always just a project codename) to openSUSE:Leap:42.1 (which now represents the distribution name and version). For this reason, we were very cautious with checkin in new packages and fixes to Tumbleweed. If we'd not have done that, there would not have been any Leap progress (which is, as opposed to Tumbleweed, on a time limit to get its releases out).
Nevertheless, we did produce two snapshots (three, if we take into account that 0903 was released on Saturday, so after my last review mail) this week (so not all was pending.. it was just slower).
Noteworthy changes this week: ============================= * NetworkManager update to 1.0.6 (incl. most VPN config modules) * KDE Framework 5.13.0 * KDE Plasma 5.4.0 (this was mentioned last week as checked in, not published) * Some more Perl 5.22 related fixes in multiple packages * doxygen 1.8.10 (basic XML syntax highlighting)
What's being forged in the various staging projects: ==================================================== * systemd: a fix in plymouth helped with some progress, but the disk encyrption dialog is still faulty (it's in text mode instead of graphical) * libQt 5.5: no change; we are still waiting for the respective fix in libyui-qt to get this in * KDE Applications 15.08.0 * NCurses 6.0: all build failures of packages in the rings have since been fixed (latest submission this morning). Let's e surprised by the staging progress and the openQA run. * Kernel 4.2: did not make it in yet; the current submission has errors and kernel-vanilla would fail to build. The warning of last week with regards to the nVidia driver seems can be lifted (if I understand the changelog right). A patch was added to Make flush_workqueue() available again to non GPL modules. * GNOME 3.18: it's not yet released, but the GNOME Team submitted 3.17.91 into the staging area in order to identify fallouts early (some have already been addressed) and to adjust openQA as needed. You should be able to expect GNOME 3.18.0 as part of Tumbleweed as quickly as possible, once it's being released upstream (Release date is Sep 23 2015).
With all this, I wish you a happy and fun weekend ahead, Dominique
