This week, I mostly pushed only small bug-fix releases to fedora and my COPR repositories – among them, an updated “vocal” podcast player, the latest version of Syncthing, and a bug-fix release of Jekyll.

fedora updates

elementary packages

The latest release of the “vocal” podcast player brings some bug fixes and stability improvements, and it’s already available on fedora.

package version releases changes
vocal 2.3.0 1.fc30, 1.fc29, 1.fc28, 1.fc27 2.2.0 → 2.3.0

A new release of the elementary LightDM greeter was tagged this week, bringing updated translations and some build system fixes. I’ve also pushed my downstream changes (to not rely on ubuntu’s patches on top of gnome-settings-daemon) to the upstream project, where the desired behavior can now be toggled at build time.

package version releases changes
elementary-greeter 3.3.1 1.fc30, 1.fc29 3.3.0 → 3.3.1

I was also finally able to push one of the final puzzle pieces for a complete gsignond stack to fedora - the plugin for gsignond. Now, only the Mail plugin is missing, and I’m working on getting that submitted next week.

package version releases changes
gsignond-plugin-lastfm 0 0.1.20180507.git0a7a5f8.fc30 Initial packaging

ruby packages

I updated the Jekyll ruby gem to the latest bug-fix release that was released by upstream this week. Development of the 3.x series is quieting down, since the primary effort is directed towards reaching version 4.0.0.

package version releases changes
rubygem-jekyll 3.8.5 1.fc30, 1.fc29, 1.fc28 3.8.4 → 3.8.5

golang packages

The latest version of Syncthing, which was released this week, is also already available on fedora. This will probably be the last update of Syncthing for fedora 27, since that release will reach EOL soon.

package version releases changes
syncthing 0.14.52 1.fc30, 1.fc29, 1.fc28, 1.fc27 0.14.51 → 0.14.52

COPR updates

I also pushed the updated elementary Greeter to the elementary-staging COPR repository for fedora 27 and 28, to make the improved package availabe for interested users.

package version release changes
elementary-greeter 3.3.1 1.fc28, 1.fc27 3.3.0 → 3.3.1
