Log

Core Update 142

  • some bugs introduced in C141 fixed
  • suricata 5.0.2 caused noticeable performance improvements
  • positive testing feedback
  • possible kernel memory leak needs further investigation

Core Update 143 (planning)

  • Michael contributes glibc
  • Tons of patches on the mailing list
  • Peter takes care of OpenSSH 8.2
  • Probably won't be a small Core Update
  • Trade-off: Smaller releases vs. release more often
  • Merge window closes as soon as the update before is released
  • Nightly builds push experimental branches automagically

Infrastructure breakdown at 2020-03-01

  • Root cause is unclear at the moment
  • Heavy load in Hanover after 2020-02-29 23:59:59 CET
  • fork() was not possible anymore, kernel space operational
  • Assumption: leap second and/or February 29th?

ARM64 builder upgrade

Development team changes

  • Unhelpful feedback from the community (logs missing, etc.)
  • Two new members with C (libloc?) and Python (webapp) skills
