[Stable Update] 2017-01-30 – Kernels, Steam, Budgie, Deepin, KDE Framework, Virtualbox

system_software_updateHi Community,

it has been a while since we updated our stable branch. This was partly a result of me being on vacation. I had a great time in the States and the Caribbean. This was a little getaway from the Winter here in Germany. Enjoying the sun and having a drink on the beach was a great exchange for instead sitting in the cold on a bench at a hill in the alps with a mulled wine.

With this update we now have the latest Virtualbox v5.1.14, some new kernels, latest Lumina and Budgie desktop updated. Friends of coding may find the latest Ruby now in our repositories. Also included are KDE Frameworks 5.30 packages and the majority of Deepin 15.4rc packages.

Hugo, Frede and Ramon have recently worked on a lot of improvements for our pacman-mirrors package, mainly on the GUI that can be invoked with the -i option. A new –verbose has been added and some old issues finally straightened out.

Teo released Calamares v3.0.1, which includes some needed fixes you can now test with Manjaro 17.0 Beta1.

You also find the latest Upstream updates up till Fri Jan 27 18:42:25 CET 2017. gstreamer v0.10 and some depending packages on the other hand got removed. Please check your systems, as most of these packages got moved to the AUR, as support was put on hold for these applications and libraries.

All changes can be also reviewed here.

Enjoy and report back as usual …

kind regards,

Philip and the Manjaro Development Team
