[Stable Update] 2017-10-26 – Gnome, KDE, Deepin, LibreOffice, Firefox, Wine, Virtualbox

system_software_updateHi community,

this is one of our bigger update-sets we released to our stable branch yet. Most of our desktop environments got updated. On our graphical package management we have now two versions of Pamac to offer: the store version and a classic one.

Firefox got updated to v56 series which gives users a better experience with features like Firefox Screenshots, Send Tabs, and more control over the browser with an improved (and searchable) preferences section. Usual upstream updates got added as well, which also includes the latest LibreOffice. Virtualbox offers now to share your VMs in the cloud. Additionally we have worked on Calamares. To round things up we also have updated all kernels to their latest released versions

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

kind regards
