Current Roundup and News – Week 35

Neoclust wrote this blog post last Sunday, but we (Atelier Team) needed three days to enhance it a little and publish it, sorry about that to Neoclust and all our readers. If you want to join Atelier Team to help publish our blog posts faster and more often, you’re very welcome!

It is time to start having good habits again and tell what we do in Mageia.

It has been a busy week, as usual! Hundreds of packages were pushed to Cauldron (499 Source RPMs, so even many more packages). Security and bugfix updates for Mageia 8 landed on our mirrors, too.

Security updates in Mageia 8:

  • webkit2
  • ytnef
  • thunderbird
  • mariadb
  • postgresql11, postgresql13
  • clamav
  • net-snmp
  • python-ldap
  • firefox
  • and a lot more

Bugfix updates in Mageia 8:

  • apache
  • boinc-client
  • kernel
  • libreoffice
  • dkms-bbswitch
  • and a lot more

Summary of updates in Mageia 8

Since mageia 8 got out, we released 757 security packages and 323 bugfix packages.

Mageia 9 is boiling

Actually (as you may have understood when you read about the hundreds of packages that are made for Cauldron) a big work is done to update packages in the upcoming mageia 9.

Three highlights: We updated Gnome to its version 42, plasma to version 5.25.4. The kernel has been updated to the latest stable release: 5.19.6.

    And, of course, newer kernel-5.19.7-1.mga9 landed in cauldron since Neoclust wrote this blog post, but before we published it.

    And we also have backports in Mageia 8 – like kernel 5.19.7 very soon (QA tested it just now) 🙂
