Weekly roundup 2017 – week 25 & 26


The ISO testing for the final release is coming along well, the majority of the remaining blocking bugs were closed recently, the last remaining big issue was with LibreOffice only installing properly in English, however, that has been fixed and new images are being tested now.

Update wise, nearly everything has been focused on getting the repository into a state where the packages can be maintained easily over the course of the release, fixing CVE issues and updates to final versions of packages that were in pre-release previously. Some notable ones are:

  • kernel 4.9.35
  • mesa 17.1.4
  • thunderbird 52.2.1
  • tomcat 8.0.44
  • exiv2 0.26 – this led a good number of packages being rebuilt

Mageia 5

As it’s been two weeks since the last roundup, there has been lots of updates, you can see the full list here, some of the major ones are listed below:

  • libtiff 4.0.8 – multiple CVE fixes
  • kernel 4.4.74 – multiple CVE fixes
  • thunderbird 52.2.0 – multiple CVE fixes
  • firefox 52.2.0 – multiple CVE fixes
  • glibc – 2.20-25 – CVE fixes

    Only during this kind of events for now but I’ve been told of ways to allow shipping without the trouble of managing a shop, so I’ll investigate. No promise though!
