SUSE News: New Release, More

  • Tumbleweed gets new Wayland, FreeType, Digikam

    A couple of snapshots have been released since the last Tumbleweed update, but in those two snapshots were an enormous amount of package updates.

    Snapshot 20161003 was the first snapshot to arrive in Tumbleweed during the month of October and it brought two new major version packages.

    Digikam 5.2.0 was updated in the repository and the release introduces a new red eyes tool that automates the red-eyes effect reduction process, which was from a new algorithm written by a Google Summer of Code 2016 student named Omar Amin. Python3-setuptools to 28.0.0 was the other package that received a major version upgrade.

  • OpenSUSE Tumbleweed Lands Wayland 1.12, Qt 5.7

    There are a number of exciting package updates for the openSUSE Tumbleweed rolling-release Linux distribution.

    The recently-released Wayland 1.12 has landed in openSUSE Tumbleweed, but as far as I know the GNOME or KDE editions of Tumbleweed are yet to use Wayland by default.

  • openSUSE Tumbleweed Receives Wayland 1.12, LibreOffice 5.2.2, and digiKam 5.2

    Today, October 13, 2016, openSUSE Project's Douglas DeMaio announced the latest software packages that landed in the openSUSE Tumbleweed rolling release operating system.

    It appears that only a couple of snapshots have been released for openSUSE Tumbleweed during the past week, but they brought a large amount of updated packages, among which we can mention the LibreOffice 5.2.2 office suite, Qt 5.7 GUI toolkit, LightDM 1.19.5 login manager, as well as digiKam 5.2.0 image editor and organizer.

  • YaST Team: Improving low-vision accessibility of the installer

    In our latest report, we promised you would not have to wait another three weeks to hear (or read) from us. And here we are again, but not with any of the anticipated topics (build time reduction and Euruko 2016), but with a call for help in a topic that could really make a difference for (open)SUSE.

    Nowadays, YaST team is trying to fix a long-standing issue in the installer: low-vision accessibility. In the past, a user could get a high-contrast mode just pressing shift+F4 during installation. Unfortunately, that feature does not work anymore and, to be honest, changing to a high-contrast palette is not enough. Other adjustments, like setting better font sizes, should be taken into account.

    Another option is to use the textmode installation and set some obscure variable (Y2NCURSES_COLOR_THEME) to get the high-contrast mode. But it sounds like the opposite to user friendly.

SUSE

Leap 42.2 Beta2 is looking pretty good, except for the problems with Plasma 5 and the nouveau driver. That’s really an upstream issue (a “kde.org” issue). I hope that is fixed in time for the final release. Otherwise, I may have to give up on KDE for that box.

  • GNOME 3.22 Now Available On OpenSUSE Tumbleweed
  • GNOME 3.22 Streamlines Into Tumbleweed

    Less than 48 hours from when GNOME’s release team unveiled version 3.22 (Karlsruhe), openSUSE Tumbleweed users are getting the full upstream experience of the latest GNOME.

    Snapshot 20160921 made 3.22 available to user, but there were plenty of other snapshots during the week that brought new packages to Tumbleweed users.

    Dominique Leuenberger, a member of the openSUSE release team, wrote that there were five snapshots this week in an email to developers on the openSUSE Factory Mailing List.

    The Linux Kernel updated to 4.7.4 and VirtualBox updated a version in the 20160920 snapshot. Snapshot 20160914 updated KDE Frameworks to 5.26.0 and KDE Applications 16.08.1.

Filed under
SUSE

Today, September 22, 2016, the openSUSE Project proudly announced the release and immediate availability for download of the second Beta development milestone towards the openSUSE Leap 42.2 operating system.

openSUSE Leap 42.2 Beta 2 comes with several interesting improvements and up-to-date software components, including the KDE Applications 16.08.0, KDE Frameworks 5.26.0, GStreamer 1.8.3, GTK+ 2.24.31, GTK+ 3.20.9, json-glib 1.2.2, Wireshark 2.2.0, and Xen 4.7.0_12.

Other than that, the openSUSE KDE team did a fantastic job of integrating the recently announced Beta release of the KDE Plasma 5.8 LTS desktop environment into openSUSE Leap 42.2 Beta 2 so you can get an early taste and see if there are any show stoppers that need to be addressed before the final version lands in mid-November.

Linux 4.9-rc8

So if anybody has been following the git tree, it should come as no surprise that I ended up doing an rc8 after all: things haven't been bad, but it also hasn't been the complete quiet that would have made me go "no point in doing another week". Extra kudos to Arnd, who actually root-caused the incredibly annoying "modversions do not work with new versions of binutils", bisecting it to a particular change to symbol handling in binutils, and then adding a small one-liner patch to the kernel to work around the issue. We already had other workarounds in place, but it's always good to know exactly what in the tool chain changed to cause things like this.
