[Stable Update] 2017-12-16 – Kernels, Mesa, Deepin, Firefox, Python, Haskell

system_software_updateHi community,

Normally you calm down a little in December, however it is a little busy for us getting Manjaro v17.1 ready before ending this year. So with this update you get new install medias to try out. Also we worked on improving our graphical installer and started to ship the architect installer also with our medias.

For friends of Office we also used our own Jade-Application-Kit to provide MS Office Online as native linux apps (you need still internet to get it working).

So what else changed so far? We had updated some of our themes, pushed out some new deepin packages, had the usual haskell and python updates, most kernels got renewed, firefox got some security updates and mesa got updated to v17.3.

Remember, we only continue with our 64bit architecture from now on. Please adopt to another distribution, if needed on 32bit supported systems, as you may not get any updates on that architecture from us.

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

kind regards

Philip Müller
Manjaro Project Lead
