openSUSE Project’s Dominique Leuenberger wrote on the openSUSE Tumbleweed’s mailing list a quick review of the major software updates that had landed in the week that had just passed for the rolling release distribution.
The most important part of Mr. Leuenberger’s review was the reveal of some of the major features and core components coming to the openSUSE Tumbleweed rolling OS via the next snapshots. Among these, there will be the recently announced Linux 4.6.1 kernel, QEMU 2.6.0 virtualization software, and the upcoming LibreOffice 5.2.0 office suite, which currently is in Beta stages of development.
In the meantime, the massive GCC 6 migration is still in progress for the openSUSE Tumbleweed operating system, and according to Dominique Leuenberger, it is getting closer to reality.
