Linux News Today: openSUSE Tumbleweed Gets KDE Applications 15.12.2, Mesa 11.1.2, Glibc Fix
openSUSE Chairman Richard Brown informs us today about the fact that the new hardware sponsored by SUSE has been all set up, and it is now fully functional for producing more snapshots for the openSUSE Tumbleweed rolling OS.
On this occasion, openSUSE’s Douglas DeMaio has written a continuation of a previous article where he notifies users of the rolling release operating system that there won’t be any new snapshots until more workers for openQA are available, which required new machines.
SUSE’s infrastructure team helped with setting up the new machine for openSUSE’s infrastructure, and everything now works twice as fast than before, so users will get even more snapshots for their openSUSE Tumbleweed operating systems, which will probably be released on a daily basis from now on.
“The new hardware can run more workers and is newer, bigger and faster, which increases the speed of openQA testing. One of two Intel E5-2630 v3 is partially running while the other has yet to be integrated into the openSUSE infrastructure,” says Douglas DeMaio.
The latest snapshots for Tumbleweed bring more goodies
Three new snapshots have been released for openSUSE Tumbleweed since last week’s article, and they have brought in updates for some essential applications and core components. Among the most important ones, we can mention Mesa 3D Graphics Library 11.1.2, KDE Applications to 15.12.2, and python3-setuptools 20.1.1.
Additionally, javapackages-tools 4.6.0, and the latest version of the Wireshark network scanner, GTK2 and GTK3 GUI toolkits, as well as GStreamer multimedia backend have received updates. Also, the recent Glibc DNS vulnerability, which allowed remote attackers to hijack your Linux devices, has now been patched in openSUSE Tumbleweed.
Please update your systems as soon as possible to receive all the goodies mentioned above, and don’t forget to keep your system up to date at all times, as more snapshots will be released for openSUSE Tumbleweed in the coming days and weeks.
