[opensuse-factory] openSUSE Tumbleweed – Review of the Week 2016/49
Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

I’m sure nobody doubted it, but Tumbleweed is back on the roll! And in
fact, we did the impossible and released 8 snapshots in a week. This
review will cover {1201..1208}.

Interesting updates delivered this week:

  * Linux Kernel 4.8.12
  * Kernel Firmware 20161130
  * Mesa 13.0.2
  * More drivers updated for X.org 1.19.0
  * Emacs 25.1 – now with webkit support
  * Preparations for systemd 232 and GTK 4; no impact (yet)

That already gave some hints on what is coming your way and what is
currently being worked on:

  * X.org 1.19.0 – Apparently there are some issues with switching
between Text and GUI mode
  * Systemd 232 – Staging just started. Let’s be surprised
  * GTK 4.0 (3.89.0) is in the pipeline. It is parallel-installable to
GTK2 and GTK3
  * krb5 1.15 – supporting AES-SHA2
  * Linux Kernel 4.8.13 (or newer)
  * KDE Applications 16.12.0 (currently 16.11.90 in Staging to iron out
issues)

Have a fun weekend ahead - and if you have time, help looking into the
issues in the various Stagings (nothing scary at the moment)

Cheers,
Dominique
