Another busy week, another late report 🙉️ But this time, there really are some updates for everybody. Both Jekyll and Syncthing got updates to the latest versions, there’s updates for random python, ruby, and golang packages, and some minor bug-fix updates for elementary packages. In addition to that, we’ve worked to get some more Java packages maintained by the Stewardship SIG updated, as well.
The jekyll project published probably one of the last stable releases – before jekyll 4 will succeed these older versions – to address minor bugs and to fix a small security issue.
|rubygem-jekyll||3.8.6||1.fc31, 1.fc30, 1.fc29||3.8.5 → 3.8.6|
Accompanying the jekyll update is a minor update for the rouge syntax highlighting library, which again adds support for some new languages, and fixes minor issues.
|rubygem-rouge||3.6.0||1.fc31, 1.fc30, 1.fc29||3.5.1 → 3.6.0|
The latest version of the pyrsistent python package contains a small number of fixes for unexpected behavior in edge cases and makes the build system more robust – updated packages are on their way to rawhide and fedora 30.
|python-pyrsistent||0.15.3||1.fc31, 1.fc30||0.15.2 → 0.15.3|
A new stable release of Syncthing was published last week, and I’ve updated the fedora packages accordingly. There’s some changes in the default behavior, fixes for some bugs, some new features (including support for QUIC transport). This release also includes support for automatic crash reporting, which can be configured via the web interface.
|syncthing||1.2.0||1.fc31, 1.fc30, 1.fc29||1.1.4 → 1.2.0|
I also updated the
github.com/syncthing/notify golang package to an up-to-date
snapshot of the git master branch, which brings two fixes for minor issues to
the fedora package.
|golang-github-syncthing-notify||0||0.9.20190710git69c7a95.fc31, 0.8.20190710git69c7a95.fc30, 0.6.20190710git69c7a95.fc29||116c45b → 69c7a95|
The latest version of the Session indicator for Wingpanel brings some fixes for minor bugs, including a workaround for unstyled Shutdown dialog window in the greeter.
|wingpanel-indicator-session||2.2.4||1.fc31, 1.fc30, 1.fc29||2.2.3 → 2.2.4|
After almost a year without any activity, a new release of the
watchdog for Pantheon was published. It contains fixes for changed session
termination behavior and will no longer try to restart session components while
the user is logging out.
|cerbere||2.5.0||1.fc31, 1.fc30, 1.fc29||0.2.4 → 2.5.0|
I’ve also been busy working on getting more of the packages that are maintained
by the Stewardship SIG up to date again. To start things off, I pushed changes
xbean to fix build issues in rawhide.
|jline1||1.0||19.fc31||fix FTBFS issue on rawhide|
|xbean||4.9||3.fc31||fix FTBFS issue on 32bit arches|
Additionally, I un-retired the
apache-mime4j package, which is still needed
for some parts of the PKI stack.
Finally, after getting positive reviews for my Pull Requests, I merged version updates for another five packages into rawhide.
|apache-commons-daemon||1.2.0||1.fc31||1.0.15 → 1.2.0|
|plexus-utils||3.2.0||1.fc31||3.1.0 → 3.2.0|
|apiguardian||1.1.0||1.fc31||1.0.0 → 1.1.0|
|maven-source-plugin||3.1.0||1.fc31||3.0.1 → 3.1.0|
|jaxen||1.2.0||1.fc31||1.1.6 → 1.2.0|
There’s still a lot of work ahead, because even with the updates pushed in the past few weeks, about 50% of the packages that are maintained by the Stewardship SIG are still out of date.
It’s also difficult to keep on top of things lately, because the release monitoring service used for automatically tracking new upstream releases for fedora has been broken for some weeks. For now, I’m using libraries.io for getting notified of new releases.
