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.

Moreover, the rolling release distribution received the newest Wayland 1.12 display manager, along with the Weston 1.12 compositor, and Mono 4.6 for those who want to run cross-platform applications. WireShark 2.2.1 network protocol analyzer, FreeType 2.7 font engine, and python3-setuptools 28.0.0 extensions to the python-distutils package.

Ofc course, numerous other packages have been updated, so you're urged to install them from the default stable repositories as soon as possible. Some improvements for those who use the VLC Media Player were implemented as well, and it looks like the next snapshots will bring the Linux 4.7.6 kernel. After that, the kernel packages will finally be migrated to the new Linux 4.8 series.

"A subpackage for VLC will give users installing vlc-codecs a prompt to replace the distro-provided libavcodec package, requires the user to accept a vendor change. User can expect two new kernels in the rolling release soon. Kernel 4.7.6 is expected soon and Kernel 4.8 is currently being staged so it looks like Tumbleweed might not be running the 4.7 kernel very long," says Douglas DeMaio in today's announcement .

Again, if you're using openSUSE Tumbleweed, please update it now to receive all the goodies mentioned above. In the meantime, those who are waiting for the rock-solid openSUSE Leap 42.2 release should know that the first Release Candidate (RC) milestone is scheduled to land for testing next week, on October 18, 2016.
