The openSUSE distribution has been updating many of the components in the project's rolling release edition over the past twoweeks. Going through the list of changes to the rolling release edition, called Tumbleweed, we can see the project has updated their copy of the Linux kernel to version 4.7.2, VirtualBox has been bumped to version 5.1.4 and LibreOffice 126.96.36.199 is available in the Tumbleweed repositories. The Plasma desktop has been upgraded to version 5.7.4 and GNOME 3.22 is expect to be made available later this month. The project's compiler and systemd implementation have been updated too. "The GNU Compiler Collection updated to version 6.2.1, systemd added some subpackages and python-setuptools updated from version 23.1.0 to 26.1.1. Python provided the most updates for the snapshot. The snapshot was a complete rebuild of the distro, so there several package updates needed to be install." A list of changes can be found in the project's news announcement.
