To conclude the year 2017, I’ve submitted several updates last week, including four updates to elementary packages - a new snapshot build with bug fixes for their CMake extensions, a new snapshot build of gala to add support for area selection screenshots, updated wallpapers, and a big update for vocal, including several fixes for crashes and better looks on HiDPI screens. The syncthing package was updated to the latest upstream version, and two golang packages (kcp-go added support for a blacklist) were updated to their latest releases or newer snapshots.

I have also started to rebase the RPM .spec files used for building packages for the elementary-nightly COPR repository to the .spec files from the official fedora packages. Additionally, two packages were renamed in this repository.

fedora updates

I’ve submitted the following packages to the fedora repositories:

COPR updates

It looks like fedora and RHEL 7 have diverged far enough that I can’t provide builds of syncthing for EPEL 7 anymore, since the build fails and I can’t seem to figure out why. So, syncthing-v0.14.41 will be the last package for EPEL 7 in the syncthing COPR repository - for now.

As mentioned above, I have started to incorporate the official .spec files for elementary packages into the .spec files used for the nightly builds in the elementary-nightly COPR repository. All packages between appcenter and pantheon-files are done, the rest will follow next week.

Additionally, the pantheon-calculator package was renamed to elementary-calculator, and pantheon-files was renamed to elementary-files, as is in line with upstream’s decision to phase out the Pantheon name for their applications.
