In the event you haven't been following the development tracker over the last few days, there's been a massive upgrade to Python 3 (bringing it up to 3.7.6 from the 3.6 series), thanks to the hard work of @joebonrichie which has spanned over several days. This upgrade touches hundreds of packages and similar to other deferring we've done to previous stack upgrades (such as to GNOME), I'm going to be deferring sync to the stable repository this week until next Friday (Feb. 14th).
This will give us time to:
- Perform further testing of the Python 3 stack and fix stragglers.
- Perform additional testing on our new kernel (5.5.1, which we'll bring up to 5.5.2) and ensure that the NVIDIA 340 GLX Driver (which is no longer supported by NVIDIA) is properly deprecated and we give users which may have custom xorg configs additional heads up. We also have validation to perform on VirtualBox (per a patch from @kyrios).
- Perform upgrades to additional stacks, namely to ALSA and our toolchain (glibc, LLVM, etc.).
- Put out a blog post / roundup with all this information, aiming for early next week.
As always we strive for a smooth upgrade process for you, as well as providing you a curated rolling release experience that balances getting you the newest goodies and system stability, so thank you in advance for your understanding!
