Manjaro 0.8.8rc1 online now!

manjaro-xfce-0.8.8I’m happy to announce our first public release candidate of Manjaro 0.8.8 featuring Pamac 0.9 (XFCE), Octopi 0.3 (Openbox) and Thus, our new graphical simplified installer. This release is based on our stable branch, so everybody can test this release.

It took us a little longer to get it done. Thus is beta software now and should be stable enough for working test installations. Pamac got bugfixed and Octopi only misses some translations to be called final 0.3.

With help of our 58 pages Beginners Guide it is easy for you get started and to be guided thru the installation process. One document you should read first!

Other features are:

  • Linux 3.10.17 LTS
  • XFCE 4.10 (with backported 4.11 applications)
  • Openbox 3.5.2
  • Thus 0.8
  • Pamac 0.9 (XFCE)
  • Octopi 0.3 (Openbox)
  • Latest drivers (Catalyst 13.4, Nvidia 325.15)
  • LibreOffice 4.1.2 (XFCE only)
  • UpdatePack 1-7 included

Use these install medias with care – we might have still missed something … Give us some feedback and translate our tools for the upcoming final release.

kind regards
