Weekly roundup 2017 – Week 48

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.

    Today Firefox was updated to 52.5.2, when you noticed 57. I would like to understand using an 8 months ago or more, when many things changed, whith the new releases!

      Hi Newton – the v57 Firefox update was in Cauldron, which is our development version – this will end up being Mageia 7 in the future, but it’s now still very much in flux.

    I saw Firefox 57 in Cauldron and wondered what was going on. Does it mean a move to non ESR versions of Firefox is being considered?
