openSUSE Tumbleweed, the rolling-release version of the popular German Linux distribution, is keeping up well with all of the innovations in the free software ecosystem.

Douglas DeMaio shared an update on the openSUSE News page about the latest improvements landing in Tumbleweed. With the newest packages, openSUSE Tumbleweed is now on the stable Linux 3.19 kernel that was released just under one month ago. There's also Mozilla Firefox 36 and many other new package versions.

Right now openSUSE developers are working on landing an update to systemd, which will bump it to systemd 219. On the compiler-front, GCC 5 is still a few snapshots away from landing in openSUSE Tumbleweed.
