The GNOME 3.36 Stack is now in our unstable repository, available for brave testers. If you're interested, check out https://dev.getsol.us/T8829
Going live for a day of GNOME 3.36 package pushing to the unstable repo and random stuff while waiting for packages to build! Tune in at https://twitch.tv/joshstrobl
Stream is done and basically all work on GNOME stack is done (excluding some things I need to rebase). Time for pasta salad and some gaming. Will be testing and pushing out stack upgrade on Monday to unstable, so keep an eye out for that and possibly a blog post!
If you missed any of it, I'll hopefully have it up on my LBRY
channel sometime early next week depending on time, will share links out when it's published. Thanks to all that tuned in live and kept me company and from losing my mind.
Just got done with an almost 7 hour Day 2 stream for GNOME 3.36 Stack Upgrade for #Solus. Almost complete with the upgrade, one final day + shorter stream for tomorrow of mostly safety rebuilds.
Planning on testing it during the weekend and releasing the updates on Monday!

PSA: We will be deferring our regular Friday sync to the stable repository to next Friday (Feb 14th) as we perform additional testing against some massive updates, such as to Python 3. Read more at https://discuss.getsol.us/d/3706-feb-7th-sync-deferred-to-next-week-feb-14th and expect a blog post early next week for more details!
Building on this, we are also looking into alternatives to systemd's default DNS server: Google, such as Cloudflare DNS (which is, by default in systemd, the fallback). Should we find a privacy-oriented alternative that can operate on our scale, we'll look into switching over.
Happy to say Solus now has its own vendor pool zones for NTP graciously provided by the NTP Pool Project, allowing us to move away from Google for NTP / time server usage.🎉
Our systemd has been updated, stable repo users can expect the update next Friday🙂 - Joshua
