[Stable Update] 2018-05-17 – GCC8, Gimp, KDE, Gnome, Deepin, Firefox

Hi community,

although we tried to wait not too long since the last one, this has again become quite a big and important stable update.
With the arrival of GCC8 all our kernels with extramodules and other software had to be re-compiled. Kernels linux 414, 416, 49 and realtime LTS kernel 4.14.40-rt30 had new point releases and linux417 is now at rc5.

GIMP has gone ‘all mushrooms’ 😉 with a fresh new look for its latest stable release:

We update Gnome to 3.28.2, KDE-framework to 5.46 with KDE-apps 18.04.1 and Deepin and Cinnamon receive several package updates aswell. Also of course we have the very latest browser versions for you: Firefox 60.0.1, Chromium 66.0.3359.181 and Palemoon 27.9.1

Users of video editor flowblade (from the AUR) should be aware that it is currently not ready for mlt 6.8.0, which is also on today’s package list! Hopefully its developers will be able to adjust quickly…

If you are curious about the latest state of development for the upcoming Manjaro-Illyria 18.0 release, you now have the opportunity to download a beta-build of Manjaro-Xfce 18.0 including the latest xfce-gtk3 packages aswell as our most recent styling efforts:

Latest information about the intel-cpu-bug risk and our efforts can be found here.

Please report any issue you may have with this update and in general on the Manjaro Forum. We appreciate your feedback and any suggestions.
