[Stable Update] 2018-01-19 – Kernels, KDE Apps & Framework, Browsers, Virtualbox, Systemd, Mesa

system_software_updateHi community,

Upstream worked again on the Spectre and Meltdown matter and added Retpoline patches (v4.4, v4.9, v4.14, v4.15). Our GCC compiler is still in need for those patches aswell. We also updated Systemd to the lastest available version, added some needed fixes to Pamac, added KDE Framework v5.42, plus the usual Haskell and Python upgrades.

Matti worked to improve Manjaro-Architect installer, I updated Snap, we added KDE Apps v17.12.1, renewed Mesa and released Wine v3.0-rc6. As usual we have the regular upstream updates.

Stefano worked again on our Adapta Theme and the Grub-Live-Theme. We had the libcdio v2.0 rebuild and added some more WebDAD packages.

Codruț worked on the vertex-maia-icons, we had another systemd update plus the usual haskell and python rebuilds.

Our effort and all the needed information about the new security risk can be found here.

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
