Manjaro 0.8.7 XFCE Preview

manjaro-0.8.7-xfce

I’m happy to announce a preview build of Manjaro 0.8.7 which we will release in late July. This first build is fully installable and stable. You will find only a minimalistic XFCE 4.10 Desktop on it. One of the biggest changes you might see is the use of Whisker Menu which replaces the standard XFCE menu. We fixed our Manjaro Settings Manager and updated Pamac (graphical package manager). The 32bit build will fit on a 700 MB CD, for the 64bit build you have to use a 800 MB CD.

LiveCD features:

  • Kernel: 3.9.8
  • Xorg: 1.14.2
  • Webbrowser: Midori
  • Email Client: Sylpheed
  • Media Player: Parole (some gst-plugins may still be needed)
  • Manjaro Settings Manager
  • Live-Installer
  • Minimalistic XFCE 4.10 Desktop
  • Latest free and proprietary drivers

We hope you enjoy the latest and greatest iteration of Manjaro Linux so far!

Kind regards

Philip Müller and the Manjaro Developers Team
