Weekly Status Report: 2020-02-09

Hello all!

This week was spent ensuring that Adélie Linux 1.0 RC1 is the most stable, secure, and solid release yet.

abuild

The work to ensure abuild works properly with the dash shell has concluded! This means that the abuild package no longer requires Bash.

Additionally, the work to make automatic ‘dev’ and ‘symbols’ metapackages has been pushed to our abuild.git repository.

These two items comprise the update to Adélie abuild 3.4.1.

Horizon

An issue with configuring network interfaces automatically via DHCP has been fixed.

Manual network interface configuration is now supported. Code for handling IPv4 subnet prefixes was contributed by Kiyoshi Aman (aerdan@).

Image Creation

The adelie-build-txz script was overhauled with the same improvements that the adelie-build-cd script received last week.

Packages

A. Wilcox (awilfox@) fixed an issue that caused Krita to fail to start properly on some computers. They removed all remaining bash-specific shell constructs from package recipes. They also updated digiKam to its latest version, and updated KDE Applications to 19.12.2 and KDE Frameworks to 5.67.0.

Max Rees (sroracle@) updated LibreOffice to its latest stable version.
