Manjaro 0.8.2rc1 (Xfce, Net) online

If all goes as planned, we will release Manjaro 0.8.2 on the 10th of November. To find any regressions in our current testbuild I'm releasing 0.8-r1029 as Manjaro 0.8.2rc1 so we can fix bugs before 0.8.2 will hit our servers.

This release is mainly for developer and testers, not recommend for end-users!

Manjaro 0.8.2pre2 introduced EFI, GUID Partition Table, btrfs and nilfs2 support. Our x86_64 editions have EFI boot support thru gummiboot. With this release we are only shipping our XFCE and Net edition since most of all changes happend there. For all other editions please download our previous testbuild and use pacman to update your systems.

Since we rewrote our CLI installer and many people had issues with it, we are offering now two installers. The stable one is known to work best and with the testing installer you have all new features. We also started to translate both installers to turkish. Thx flies out to our translation team.

Also new in this release is the re-usage of linux34-series as our default kernel. We still ship Kernel 3.6-series optional.

Test those images and report back any bugs or regressions you might find. You can download 0.8.2rc1 from here. Latest Network Edition can be found here. Please check your download with our provided check-sum-files (open them with any editor). It is good to read our installation tutorial.

To get the latest version of our installation framework use:

sudo update-setup
