[Stable Update] 2017-02-17 – Kernels, Plasma5, KDE Frameworks/Apps, Libreoffice, Mozilla

system_software_updateHi Community,

it took us a little longer to prepare this update-pack for you guys. This was mostly due to the move to Plasma 5.9 series. With it we have now the latest Plasma 5.9.2, KDE Apps 16.12.2 and KDE Frameworks 5.31.0.

We also updated most of our kernels to the latest point releases available, released the latest Mate and Kodi plus updated Haskell and Python packages. Additionally some xfce plugins and thunar got a new release such as flashplugin and php.

Issues which crashed the Xorg-Server should be gone now. On the internet apps section we ship now Firefox 51.0.1, Thunderbird 45.7.0 and NetworkManager 1.6.0. LibreOffice v5.2.5 & v5.3.0 will please our office junkies in their productive work …

A lot of effort went into our manjaro tools. With v0.14 series we introduced new functions and simplified on how our ISO images and packages get generated. All current profiles can be found here.

Also our graphical package managers got updated: octopi v0.8.7 has now a more enhanced options menu. With pamac v4.2.0 we optimized the process engine and removed the AUR-search-button (now integrated in normal search).

As usual you find the latest Upstream updates up till Wed Feb 15 07:38:40 CET 2017. A detailed list can be found here. Enjoy and report back as usual …

Enjoy and report back as usual …

kind regards,

Philip and the Manjaro Development Team
