Linux News Today: openSUSE Tumbleweed Users Get the Latest KDE, LibreOffice and Snapper Updates
openSUSE Tumbleweed users are being informed today, January 28, by Mr. Douglas DeMaio of openSUSE Project about the availability of multiple updates for their beloved operating systems.
openSUSE Tumbleweed is the rolling edition of the acclaimed openSUSE Linux operating system, and it would appear that it received a bunch of new updates lately, for various KDE technologies, as well as for some of the most prominent software applications that are preinstalled in the distribution.
It has been a while since we’ve talked about the openSUSE Tumbleweed snapshots, so we would like to first inform you that last week the rolling-release distro received several important updates, such as KDE Frameworks 5.18.0 and KMail 5. The YaST and Perl packages have been updated as well.
What landed this week for Tumbleweed
In this week’s snapshot, the openSUSE Tumbleweed operating system received the latest stable KDE Applications 15.12.1 software suite, which updates the Marble world atlas and virtual globe software to version 15.12.1, but also patches many bugs and updates translations.
The LibreOffice office suite has been updated as well, to version 188.8.131.52, the Perl Image ExifTool package also got an update, to version 10.10, promising to introduce multiple visual equipment enhancements. Other than that, the powerful Snapper utility is now at version 0.2.10, adding optional support for the installation-helper package.
“Perl Image ExifTool’s update to 10.10 provided several visual equipment updates and the notes related to the update provided some criticism of programmers from a camera manufacturer,” said Douglas DeMaio in today’s announcement. “Perl XML XPath updated to 1.24 and Snapper updated to 0.2.10.”
Lastly, openSUSE Tumbleweed’s latest snapshot updates the Perl XML XPath package to version 1.24, the YaST installation and configuration tool to version 3.1.113, the Mesa 3D Graphics Library to version 11.1.1, and the GNOME Bluetooth software to version 3.18.2. Please update your Tumbleweed installation as soon as possible.
