[opensuse-factory] Tumbleweed – Review of the week 2015/43
Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

Tumbleweed is a bit of a quiet place these days… as you can imagine,
resources are almost completely redirected to openSUSE Leap 42.1 –
that’s contributor and CPU resources. Yet, two snapshots have been
released within the last week.

The few noteworthy updates where:
* Linux Kernel 4.2.3. The merge of the -desktop flavor into the
  -default flavor is now reality. You setup will replace the
  kernel-desktop package(s) with kernel-default. One side effect is
  that ALL kernel-desktop versions are removed, not only the latest
  version. You can avoid this with a zypper lock
  (zypper al kernel-desktop)

Problems I heard of in the past weeks, which might impact you too:
* Libreoffice 5.0 crashes on saving files: LO5 has a new GTK3
  integration module, which is, sadly, not up to the standards yet.
  But it was realized too late. The next LO5 package will have the GTK3
  variant split in a separate package, so that the devs can work with
  it and debug it. Until then, if you suffer from LO5 crashes, the
  easiest way is to delete the file
  (you could also uninstall libreoffice-gnome, but then LO will look
  really bad)

What is brewing in the Staging Areas:
* KDE Applications 15.08.2 will be in Snapshot 20151022+
* KDE Frameworks 5.15.0
* Plasma 5.4.2
* GCC 5.2 will come your way
* GNOME 3.18.1

But of course, openSUSE Leap 42.1 will remain the main focus point in
the next few days; after all, we want to make this a great release.

Have a great weekend and a lot of fun.
