Weekly roundup 2017 – week 20


We have just had a new build of the Live ISOs, while the Classical ISO build is underway to fix a glib bug that was causing LibreOffice to use 100% CPU, so getting that fixed was very good. The ISOs are looking very good now.

Updates wise, there has been good activity in Cauldron, here is a selection of what has been updated since last week:

  • lyx 2.2.3
  • libreoffice
  • postgresql9.4 9.4.12
  • postgresql9.6 9.6.3
  • ffmpeg 3.3.1

There were also updates to Mate, with some of its packages being upgraded to 1.18.2 and the nodejs, jboss and maven stacks saw upgrades too, there are so many packages in these stacks that listing them all didn’t make much sense.

Mageia 5

There has been a number of updates released for Mageia 5 this week, you can see the full list of recent updates here, here is a list of new updates this week:

  • mhonarc 2.6.19 – CVE fix
  • radicale 1.1.1 – CVE fix
  • asterisk 11.23.1 – bugfix


A quick note from the Council meeting this week, we were discussing the upcoming RMLL event and what we wanted to bring to it and the stock levels of the goodies that we do have. We decided that we would need to reorder lots of items, as the pens and wood USB sticks seemed to go down well, they and any other ideas put forward will be available at events. We wanted to try and use as sustainable products as possible, so, with that in mind, if anyone has any designs, ideas or suppliers, let the atelier mailing list know and we’ll see what we can do.

A short roundup this week, due to lots of time being put into getting the RC released, we will try and get you a bigger one for next week.

      They should be available on most mirrors by now, if you don’t get a working mirror on the download page for Mageia 6 linked in the blog, check for one here: mirrors.mageia.org if not, then on torrent for sure.
