Taking the risk of sounding like a broken record, I’m going to claim that this was another pretty average week. There’s some build fixes for fedora rawhide, some updated ruby, python, and elementary packages - both for official fedora packages, and for packages that I maintain in my COPR repositories.

fedora updates

python packages

After the test suite for the magic-wormhole-mailbox-server python package started to fail in the CI builds, I added the newly missing python3-mock package to the build dependencies to fix the builds again.

package version release changes
python-magic-wormhole-mailbox-server 0.3.1 3.fc31 add BR on python3-mock to fix test suite

ruby packages

Another stable release of the liquid ruby gem was released last week, and an updated package is on its way to the stable fedora repositories.

package version release changes
rubygem-liquid 4.0.3 1.fc31, 1.fc30, 1.fc29, 1.fc28 4.0.2 → 4.0.3

I also updated the SEO plugin for jekyll, the jekyll-seo-tag ruby package, to the latest version, which was released last week. It should fix issues around twitter not handling post metadata correctly.

package version release changes
rubygem-jekyll-seo-tag 2.6.0 1.fc31, 1.fc30, 1.fc29, 1.fc28 2.5.0 → 2.6.0

elementary packages

I bumped the gala package in fedora to a newer snapshot again - it contains a fix for a visual issue in the application overview.

package version release changes
gala 0.3.1 0.23.20190307.git2c610b3.fc31, 0.23.20190307.git2c610b3.fc30, 0.22.20190307.git2c610b3.fc29 395670e → 2c610b3

Since all the necessary dependencies are available on fedora 30 and later, I turned on the Last.FM plugin in elementary’s Music application. I’ve also split off the two plugins that require additional libraries (the iPod and Last.FM plugins) into separate, optional sub-packages that can be installed when needed.

package version release changes
elementary-music 5.0.3 2.fc31, 2.fc30 enable Last.FM plugin

I also updated the Code package in fedora to the latest bug-fix release, which was tagged last week.

package version release changes
elementary-code 3.1.1 1.fc31, 1.fc30, 1.fc29 3.1.0 → 3.1.1

COPR updates

appcenter packages

Both the aesop PDF reader and the quilter Markdown editor had new releases published last week. Both bring updated translations, and - in the case of quilter - an additional bug-fix for an issue that happened when files were added to the sidebar.

package version release changes
aesop 1.1.0 1 1.0.8 → 1.1.0
quilter 1.7.6 1 1.7.5 → 1.7.6

elementary staging packages

I also updated both the Security & Privacy and User Accounts plugs for switchboard, the elementary Settings application. Both contain updated translations and minor improvements.

Additionally, the User Accounts plug can now also correctly identify the currently logged in user on fedora. Some other remaining issues still prevent it from being submitted to fedora proper, though.

package version release changes
switchboard-plug-security-privacy 2.2.1 1 2.2.0 → 2.2.1
switchboard-plug-useraccounts 2.2.1 1 2.2.0 → 2.2.1
