Back to publishing weekly reports about the latest updates landing in the openSUSE Tumbleweed operating system, Dominique Leuenberger is reporting on the contents of the newest snapshots.
No less than seven snapshots have been released to the OpenSuSE Tumbleweed repositories during this week, which means it’s at its highest capacity, bringing users some of the recent software updates and technologies. First off, users can now update to the latest KDE Plasma 5.11.2 desktop environment and KDE Frameworks 5.39.0 stack.
openSUSE Tumbleweed is now powered by the Linux 4.13.10 kernel and Mesa 17.2.3 graphics stack, and it also looks like latest SQLite 3.21.0 database engine and Mono 5.4.0 open-source .NET Framework implementation arrived as well, along with Ethtool 4.13, Postfix 3.2.4, Apparmor 2.11.1, SuSEfirewall2 3.6.369, libXfont 1.5.3, libxslt 1.1.30, Glib2 2.54.2, glib-networking 2.54.1, and appstream-glib 0.7.3.
“Snapshot 1101 was unfortunately released with corrupted/no AppStream metadata (again) which resulted in https://software.opensuse.org/search being broken,” said Dominique Leuenberger. “The next snapshot 1102 (currently in openQA) fixes this again – and we are looking into ways to detect this potential failure before publishing a new snapshot.”
