October seems to have been a pretty average month with respect to the distribution of updates (some elementary stuff, some ruby, some python, some golang packages), but the total number of updates seems to have been slightly below average.

fedora updates

elementary packages

I’ve pushed an update for the Printers plug for Switchboard which fixes compilation with newer versions of vala. The patch was backported from upstream and will be part of the next release.

package version release changes
switchboard-plug-printers 2.1.6 4.fc32, 4.fc31, 3.fc30 fix an issue with newer vala versions

I also decided to update the Plank dock to the latest release candidate, which should include some fixes for commonly occurring bugs and crashes (for example, dragging icons on the dock).

package version release changes
plank 0.11.89 1.fc32, 1.fc32, 1.fc32, 1.fc32 0.11.4 → 0.11.89

I also released a “final” version of the Pantheon session settings for fedora 31, which only included some minor adjustments.

package version release changes
pantheon-session-settings 31.0 1.fc32, 1.fc31 30.92 → 31.0

ruby packages

I created a new package for the stringex ruby gem, which is needed for running the complete test suite in the package for the kramdown gem.

package version release changes

Some new releases for the rouge gem were published as well, and I’ve pushed fedora updates for these versions to all currently supported fedora releases.

package version release changes
