[opensuse-factory] openSUSE Tumbleweed – Review of the Week 2016/43
Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

The magic number this week is 6: that’s how many snapshots have been
published since the last weekly review (1020, 1022, 1023, 1024, 1025
and 1026). Some of them were a bit larger than average (1026 – a big
rebuild due to bash 4.4).

Let’s see what else we got in this week’s updates:

  * Kernel 4.8.4 (incl. dirty CoW fix CVE-2016-5195)
  * LightDM 1.20.0
  * KDE Plasma 5.8.2
  * SQLite 3.15.0
  * Bash 4.4 – libreadline had an ABI change, resulting in quite some
rebuilds

Let’s see if Tumbleweed can keep up this pace of snapshots. After all,
there are those things lined up:

  * linux-glibc-devel 4.8: only one more build failure (lirc, patch
available)
  * KDE Frameworks 5.27.0 (1028+)
  * Flatpak (1028+ – New feature will surely need some testing)
  * Samba 4.5.0 – Some attention by the maintainers seems needed
  * ICU 58.1 – Staging issues should be resolved already

With Leap 42.2 nearing RC2, we will probably soon see some larger
changes also in the base systems, as many contributors will be braver
again (systemd anybody?)

Have a great weekend ahead!

Dominique
