I recently did my April install of Tumbleweed. And it’s an interesting system. I also updated an existing Tumbleweed to the new level (20150330).
Of particular interest this month:
- there’s a newer version of NetworkManager;
- Gnome 3.16 is out and has some support for Wayland;
- “top” output format is changed.
I’ll start with Wayland, since that is the biggest change. If you have been living in a cave, and have not heard of Wayland, it has a web page HERE.
Briefly, Wayland is a proposed provider of graphic services as a possible replacement for X-windows. There are arguments around as to whether X needs a replacement. I am taking a wait and see attitude before I make up my mind on that.
