There’s lots of work still going on behind the scenes – wide-awake folks have noticed that Kernel 4.14.3 has made its way into Cauldron, along with loads of other goodies; the commits mailing list has been very active!
The devteam folks had a huge long meeting during the week to begin nailing down plans and features for Mageia 7; check out the meeting logs. Lots of stuff will continue to be discussed and refined for a while yet, but the process is well begun.
Here’s a selection of the additions and updates to Cauldron during the week:
There are also several perl and php packages – check out the full list. It’s also good to know what the QA team has in the pipeline – check it out on the AppDB. You’ll see updates being tested, updates ready to be pushed, and then there’s the backports.
