[Stable Update] 2017-09-16 – Kernels, Mesa, VirtualBox, Pamac, KDE, GCC, Removal of OpenRC

system_software_updateHi community,

with just over one week we have a new update for you. We updated Mesa to v17.2 series, which includes new drivers and other goodies, updated some of our kernels, added latest KDE Frameworks v5.38 plus having GCC v7.2 as our latest compiler. If you have difficulties to update, please install additional multilib packages of gcc first, so a full upgrade is possible.

Additionally we have the latest VirtualBox and Bluez packages plus Python and CertBot renewed. KDE locales got prepared to support Plasma v5.11 series. Last but not least we fixed some BTRFS and LOCALES issues we had within Calamares, when installed for example with German locales.

Guillaume released Pamac v6.0. It now supports appstream. With this update, however, we also removed the support of OpenRC and decided to ditch linux312 and linux48 series. Please move to another kernel series, if you still use those. No extramodule updates will be provided for these series.

Please report back and give us feedback for given changes made to our repositories.

kind regards

Philip Müller
Manjaro Project Lead
