Currently writing up a new Roundup on the goal of improving community engagement, reducing barriers to entry, and more in #Solus. Anything regarding the subject you'd like our thoughts on?

Just pushed out updates to eopkg and our developer tools, solbuild and ypkg. If you're a developer / packager, I suggest you take a look at our updated documentation on migrating to GetSolus, as we've updated our solbuild images and a reinit of the images with the new solbuild is needed.

https://getsol.us/articles/packaging/moving-to-getsolus/en/#solbuild-images

eopkg has seen a behavior change to add-repo, which will no longer give up when you try to add a repo with the same URI (but potentially different name), but rather just dynamically remove the repo with the URI already set, and re-add it with the name you specified, so basically a rename.

solbuild 1.4.3 is now tagged. This features /proc mounting for new eopkg mechanisms, cleans up some unnecessary error handling, uses a native Go HTTP downloader, implements a new --image / -i flag for clearing out images via solbuild delete-cache, and changes our images URI to getsolus.

Peter has done a load of improvements to ypkg. ypkg v28 introduces improvements around AVX and is preparation for AVX2, full Clang builds (i.e. using LDD, llvm-ar, libc++) and fixes for combinations of linkers with LTO+PGO builds.

This more-or-less "ends" our developer tooling migration and we'll be moving on to the next phase of our migration, which is ISOs. Branding packages are being updated, solus-artwork will be updated as well. There's some work I need to do on shifting over some of the geolocation functionality in the installer (for determining your country / region, providing it and the keyboard layout options) to GetSolus but that'll be fairly trivial. After that it's just a matter of cooking the ISOs, testing them, then releasing them!

Update regarding likely last phase of migration, which is new ISO. We're currently tweaking our solbuild images (used by the builder and packagers) and getting them updated to resolve likely the last developer-oriented tooling update. The goal is to focus on one item or phase, get everything resolved for that phase, then move onto the next. Once this is complete, we'll be updating branding packages and cooking new 3.9999 ISOs. Really looking forward to getting those out to everyone! - Joshua
