Weekly roundup 2017 – Week 50

2 weeks left until 2018… but who’s counting?

Some important news

In case you haven’t seen this announcement elsewhere – Tier 1 mirror distrib-ccoffee.ipsl.jussieu.fr is down, due to hardware breakage, and will be available again next week at the earliest. To avoid long breakages for our end-users, we request that mirrors that have been mirroring from distrib-coffee switch to another Tier 1.

Currently that is:
rsync://mageia.c3sl.ufpr.br/mageia/ located in Curitiba (Brasil)
rsync://mirrors.kernel.org/mirrors/mageia/ located in USA and Europe
rsync://ftp.acc.umu.se/mirror/mageia/ located in Umea (Sweden)
rsync://mirror.math.princeton.edu/pub/mageia/ located in Princeton (USA)
rsync://distro.ibiblio.org/mageia/ located in Durham (USA)

Also, if you have selected distrib-coffee as the mirror for your updates, you’ll need to move to another for the duration. A good place to check mirror status is https://mirrors.mageia.org/status, and if you’re not sure how to configure the mirror you use, check this wiki page https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Software_management#Choosing_a_specific_media_source.

Security updates:

openssl Mga5, Mga6
rsync Mga5, Mga6
lynx Mga5, Mga6
evince Mga5, Mga6
deluge Mga5

As always, check https://advisories.mageia.org/ for CVEs and package details.

Cauldron updates have been roaring through as usual! Too many to list here, but check out http://pkgsubmit.mageia.org/ for what’s been happening in the last 48 hours.

Onward and upward!
