[News] Faster Stable Updates

With our new BoxIt repository management system it is much easier to handle snapshots and synchronizations. We’ll therefore update the testing and stable repositories immediately on any changes.

XFCE Edition – New Look

I am not really happy with the current default style in the XFCE Manjaro Edition. Just a few weeks ago I searched for some new themes on all of those *-look.org pages. But all good themes are mainly based on blue colours. Finally I was motivated to fiddle around with the GTK themes again. I […]
