[![system_software_update][1]][1]Hi community,

with this we updated most of our **Kernels**, **[Mesa][2]**, **[Firefox][3]**, **GCC**. We also worked on our **Adapta theme**, downgraded the Intel microcode as needed puls reworked our **Firmwares** a little in regard of **iwlwifi**.

As usual we have some **Haskell** and **Python** rebuilds/updates. Bernhard and I worked on the **Real-Time Kernels** and updated them both to v4.14 series. We use now meta-pkgs to define them for you. Some work went into our **Steam-Client** and we managed to get more **extra-modules** compiled for our **v4.15** kernel series.

It seems that our french community had some issues changing wallpapers within our XFCE edition. This is now addressed and fixed with our [**v17.1.3** ISOs][4] by default. For installed systems we recommend to use '/usr/share/backgrounds/xfce' as default folder. The new package will automatically create the needed symlinks for wallpapers added to '/usr/share/backgrounds' from now on.

Our effort and all the needed information about the new security risk can be found [here][5].

Remember,** we only continue with our 64bit architecture from now on**. Please adopt to [another distribution][6], if needed on 32bit supported systems, as you may not get any updates on that architecture from us.

Please report back and give us feedback for given changes made to our repositories.

kind regards
