  • Akanda Delivers OpenStack Liberty-Based Platform Update

    It was all the way back in 2010, when we at OStatic first did a short post on an emerging open source cloud computing platform called OpenStack. "The open platform will go head-to-head with cloud platforms from VMware and Microsoft, and will likely compete with other open source cloud platfroms such as Eucalyptus Systems'," we noted at the time.

    Fast-forward to today, and the 12th release of OpenStack, dubbed Liberty, is out. Lots of vendors are announcing upgrades to their OpenStack distributions based on Liberty, and the latest is Akanda, the major contributor and supporter of the recently launched OpenStack Project Astara, which announced Astara's Liberty release at OpenStack Summit Tokyo.

Tumbleweed Updates From openSUSE People

  • Tools Strace, BusyBox Update in Tumbleweed - openSUSE News

    openSUSE Tumbleweed had a variety of package updates in smaller snapshots throughout this week. A few things being prepared for Tumbleweed is that the Linux Kernel 5.16.1 was scheduled for check in and pre-integration tests for GNU Compiler Collection 12 have been started; the rolling release anticipates a merge of GCC 12 in mid-Spring. The latest Tumbleweed snapshot, 20220117, updated Italian translations for libstorage-ng 4.4.75 and added python-rpm-macros for building the package. Haskell support was dropped in the thrift 0.15.0 package, which is a scalable cross-language service framework for Remote Procedure Call and Inter-Process Communication. No changelogs were provided for the plugins package written in Rust called gstreamer-plugins-rs. The remaining packages in the snapshot were all Python Package Index updates. Among the key PyPI packages to point out is the major version update of python-unicodedata2 14.0.0, which dropped support for End of Life Python 2.7 and 3.5 and added support for Python 3.9, 3.10 and PyPy3. A Tumbleweed arm 20220118 snapshot was release updating the same package listed above.

  • openSUSE Tumbleweed – Review of the week 2022/03

    Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers, 7 days have passed since my last review – and as many snapshots have been released since then too. And this even includes my error of one day performing the check-in ‘slightly too late’ (i.e. past midnight). That’s the reason that 0119 did not exist. The check-in was too late and it was already January 20th by then. The snapshots released were numbered 0113, 0114, 0115, 0116, 0117, 0118, and 0120.
