Linux News Today: openSUSE Tumbleweed Receives Wireshark 2.0, Leap 42.1 Updates Machinery
Just a few moments ago, November 27, the openSUSE Project, through Douglas DeMaio, announced the latest updates to the openSUSE Tumbleweed and openSUSE Leap 42.1 GNU/Linux operating systems.
During the week that just passed, the openSUSE developers managed to release a single snapshot (version 20151123) for the rolling-release edition of the operating system, Tumbleweed, which updated the terminal font to Adobe Code Pro. Additionally, it introduced the Roboto font as the default one.
“Tumbleweed had one snapshot so far this week that brought more appeal to users of openSUSE,” said Douglas DeMaio. “The fonts are not only available in Tumbleweed; users of Leap can update the fonts as an option. The reason for the change was to provide a more appealing, complete font.”
The recently released Wireshark 2.0 open-source network analyzer software has been added in openSUSE Tumbleweed, along with the libpoppler57, libqpdf17, and bundle-lang-common-ca packages. Moreover, the openSUSE developers managed to release some fixes for the GStreamer 1.6 multimedia backend and Boost 1.59 library, which will arrive soon into a new Tumbleweed snapshot.
