Highlights

The State of the Archive

  • After no small amount of effort, the perl 5.26 and gcc-7 transitions migrated to artful on the 10th, unblocking many of the packages that had been stuck in -proposed.
  • As GCC 7 is now the default compiler in artful, the build failures reported at https://qa.ubuntuwire.org/ftbfs/rebuilds/test-rebuild-20170706-gcc7-artful.html now apply to 17.10. Please help us resolve these failing packages for the release.
  • Next in line we have the Qt 5.9 transition. Look for more news about this next week!
