This Week in Solus – Install #19

Welcome to the 19th installation of This Week in Solus.


Alongside our crunch and focus for 1.1, we’ve also been continuing our campaign of bug crushing. We’ve crushed 22 bugs over the last week, ranging from long sitting bugs that have been resolved since the Budgie rewrite to recent ones that are related to inclusion of git-based patches for new software in the repo.


Bug Smash

Here is a highlight of bugs we’ve smashed. Naturally some have been resolved by actively pushing changes while others are simply outdated, such as pre-“Budgie rewrite” bugs.

Package Updates

This time, I’m giving you both highlights and the fire hose of updates (not including rebuilds). Why? Well I guess I’m just in that kind of mood today.
