[opensuse-factory] Tumbleweed - Review of the week 2020/10
Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

Tumbleweed – full steam ahead! There have been 6 snapshots in the last
week, some with quite some changes. The snapshots were 0227, 0228,
0229, 0301, 0303 and 0304.

The changes include:

* Zypper 1.14.34: beware! This version no longer supports abbreviated
command line parameters (e.g zypper install --no-r is no longer
accepted, you need to spell --no-recommends out)
* GCC 10 is available and provides base libraries to the system
* KDE Plasma 5.18.2
* Linux kernel 5.5.6
* Many changes in various YaST modules
* gimp 2.10.18

The future will bring those changes, sooner or later:

* Python 3.8: The latest fixes should be there. IF nothing new shows
up, this will ship next week
* binutils 2.34
* Qt 5.15.0 (currently betas being tested)
* Ruby 2.7 – possibly paired with the removal of Ruby 2.6
* GCC 10 as the default compiler
* Removal of Python 2
* GNU Make 4.3
* RPM: change of database format to ndb

Cheers,
Dominique
