[Stable Update] 2017-01-04 – Broadcom-wl, Brisk-menu, OpenVPN, Thunderbird

system_software_updateHello, Manjaro Community!

The year is still very young, yet we already have 2017’s first stable update waiting here for you:

Included is the first release of the brand new brisk-menu, developed for the Mate desktop by the Solus team.
Thunderbird received a security update by Mozilla, our realtime-kernel received its last update before we will upgrade its basekernel from linux48 to linux49.
Broadcom-wl driver, installer calamares, flightgear and some ruby packages were updated aswell as openVPN (!)


!! NOTICE !!

OpenVPN 2.4.0 update may require administrative interaction

The upgrade to openvpn 2.4.0 makes changes that are incompatible with
previous configuration. Take special care if you depend on VPN
connectivity for remote access! Administrative interaction is required:

– Configuration is expected in sub directories now. Move your files
from /etc/openvpn/ to /etc/openvpn/server/ or /etc/openvpn/client/.
– The plugin lookup path has changed. Remove extra plugins/ from relative
paths.
– The systemd unit openvpn@.service was replaced with
openvpn-client@.service and openvpn-server@.service. Restart and
reenable accordingly.

This does not affect the functionality of networkmanager, connman
or qopenvpn.


kind regards
Bernhard Landauer and the Manjaro development team

system_software_updateHi community,

only few hours left of the year 2016! During the past few days, most of us spend X-Mas with their families and friends. However some of us still found some time, to add some more packages to our repositories and new features to our tools.

So what changed and got added?

  • Bernhard pushed out some more Cinnamon packages
  • I had the pleasure to update Budgie and some of our kernels
  • David is working on our new theme Breath (aka Maia2)
  • Hugo joined our team and designs our new welcome screen, which is now translatable
  • We added Plasma 5.8.5, KDE apps 16.12 and KDE Framework 5.29
  • Almost all Kodi addons got updated
  • LibreOffice is now at 5.2.4
  • Wine got updated to 2.0rc3

[Testing Update] 2016-12-29 – Kernels, Plasma 5.8.5, Cinnamon, Python, Haskell

system_software_updateHi community,

the year 2016 almost ended. During the past few days, most of us spend X-Mas with their families and friends, some of us still found some time to add some more packages to our repositories for you to review.

Since somehow our main-server stopped our rsync-service all our mirrors went outdated two days ago. This is now fixed. Still some mirrors are outdated, but we hope to contact their owners soon, so this can be fixed aswell.

So which packages do we have added?

  • Bernhard pushed out some more Cinnamon packages
  • I had the pleasure to update Budgie and some of our kernels
  • David is working on our new theme Breath (aka Maia2)
  • Hugo joined our team and designs our new welcome screen, which is now translateable
  • We added Plasma 5.8.5, some python and haskell packages to round it up.

As usual report your findings and have some more relaxing days between the years.

kind regards,
Philip and the Manjaro Development Team

[Testing Update] 2016-12-24 – KDE Apps 16.12, KDE Framework 5.29, Libreoffice, QT5, Python


Felices fiestas de Navidad to everyone!

Since we are now starting all the Christmas festivities, we from the Manjaro Community, prepared some stuff our community can enjoy the next few days.

  • We prepared some Alpha install medias (XFCE, KDE, Cinnamon, i3) of our in Spring next year upcoming Gellivara release.
  • Hugo Posnic is working on manjaro-hello, our next default welcome screen for Manjaro Linux. It introduces translation support and ports the whole application to python3.
  • Marcus and Bernhard are developing and testing our next version of our manjaro-tools. Some of the Alpha builds are using this new tool series already. Their effort can be viewed in our git repositories.
  • The Calamares-Team worked hard, to get new features and more bugfixes into Calamares, our new graphical installation framework, used now by a wide rage of Linux Distributions.
  • With this we also updated our testing branch and added KDE Apps 16.12, KDE Framework 5.29, Libreoffice 5.2.4, QT5 5.7.1, VirtualBox 5.1.12 and Python updates. Detailed information about this update-pack can be viewed here.

So enjoy the next coming days with all the best wishes from us to you and your families.

[Stable Update] 2016-12-23 – Kernels, Nvidia, Firefox

system_software_updateHi Community,

normally it is the calm part of the year. However it seems in December we get a lot of nice updates, we from Manjaro won’t hold back from you. Nvidia managed now to update all their drivers to support xorg19-stack. Expect all other drivers around xorg also to be updated soon. Mozilla released a new point-release for their firefox browser and we updated some of our kernels.

Report back your findings as usual …

[Stable Update] 2016-12-15 – Linux v4.9.0, Haskell, steam, x-apps, flash

system_software_updateHi Community,

we finally released kernel v4.9.0, updated our haskell-stack, fixed some issues in our steam client and renewed some of the x-apps. We also updated Flash to v24 series, which includes many security fixes. All in all it should be a smooth update. Tell us otherwise. We are currently also in preparing to up our Xorg-Stack to Xorg-Server 1.19 series. Stay tuned on that matter …

Report back your findings as usual …

[Stable Update] 2016-12-12 – Kernels, Python, Deepin, Haskell, Systemd, Dbus, PHP

system_software_updateHi Community,

some might already have noticed, that we are working on our new logo. Almost all applications already adopted the new logo by now. We also removed the unsecure linux47 kernel. All users should adopt to another kernel series as we stopped maintaining extramodules for that kernel series from now on.

On the package-side we updated haskell, eric, python, php and dbus. Also we have now the latest mainline kernel v4.9-rc8 added to our repos. We also updated linux44 and linux48 series, renewed most or our Deepin packages, worked on the python and haskell stacks and fixed some issues with systemd. So this update should be smooth.

Report back your findings as usual …

Philip Müller and the Manjaro Development Team

Manjaro-i3 and Manjaro-Cinnamon 16.10.3

Both Manjaro i3 and Manjaro Cinnamon have now also been updated to 16.10.3.
The new ISOs are available from the Manjarolinux-Community:

For the Cinnamon edition this brings a small logo update of the artwork, including manjaro-welcome, grub screen and plymouth splash screen and importantly an overdue update of vertex-maia-themes to gtk3.22 to finally eliminate a bunch of gtk-errors.

cinnamon_16-10-3
For the i3 Edition this is merely an update to the latest packages. Some new wallpapers have been contributed by the community and are now included in the artwork-i3 package, among others this cool one by @Reznorix:

i3_16-10-3
Enjoy!
