system_software_updateHi community,

only few hours left of the year 2016! During the past few days, most of us spend X-Mas with their families and friends. However some of us still found some time, to add some more packages to our repositories and new features to our tools.

The whole development team wishes you all the best for 2017 and the coming years. Let us finish 2016 with a bang, as the best comes always last.

So what changed and got added?

  • Bernhard pushed out some more Cinnamon packages
  • I had the pleasure to update Budgie and some of our kernels
  • David is working on our new theme Breath (aka Maia2)
  • Hugo joined our team and designs our new welcome screen, which is now translatable
  • We added Plasma 5.8.5, KDE apps 16.12 and KDE Framework 5.29
  • Almost all Kodi addons got updated
  • LibreOffice is now at 5.2.4
  • Wine got updated to 2.0rc3
  • Virtualbox got updated to 5.1.12
  • Additonally we updated some kernels, haskell and some python packages

kind regards,
Philip Müller and the Manjaro Development Team
