More Community and Minimal Editions 17.1.8

Over the last few days the Manjaro team has been busy adding more updated editions to the 17.1.8 collection.
Most exiting novelties are a brand new Manjaro-Openbox spin using an exciting panel integration of polybar.

Also we have an added truly minimalistic KDE-minimal ISO – ideal, if you want to start off from an absolute basic Plasma Desktop with a download size of just 920MB
.
Additionally we have to offer 17.1.8 rebuilds of the Budgie, Mate and LXDE editions.

If you like builds with just the very basic software pre-installed, you now also have the additional choice of minimal-ISOs for Cinnamon, Deepin and i3.

All Community Edtion aswell as our Official Downloads can be found at the OpenSourceDownloadNetwork:

enjoy the variety of Manjaro!

[Stable Update] 2018-04-14 – Kernels, Gnome v3.28.1, Deepin, Mate, Libreoffice, Browsers, Mesa

system_software_updateHi community,

welcome to another stable update of Manjaro. It took us a little longer than usual to get this update-pack fully tested.

Our main focus was GNOME 3.28, which is the result of 6 months’ hard work by the GNOME community. It brings some major new features as well as many smaller improvements and bug fixes.

One major new feature of this release is automatic download of operating systems in Boxes, which takes the work out of creating and running virtual machines – just pick the operating system that you want to create a virtual machine of, and Boxes will now download and install it for you.

Other highlights include improvements to the Calendar and Contacts applications, the ability to star files and folders in the Files application, and improved support for Thunderbolt 3 and Bluetooth LE devices. GNOME’s default UI font has also been overhauled to be more attractive and easy to read, and the on-screen keyboard has been rewritten to be more reliable and has layouts for a number of different locales.

There are many other improvements in GNOME 3.28, which can be read about in the release notes.

The Deepin Desktop also received a lot of package updates including some important bugfixes, namely some rather serious issues with cpu load of deepin-dock and deepin-daemon were fixed.
Additionally we updated Pamac, Mesa, our kernels and browsers, LibreOffice, GStreamer, PHP, Calamares, Inxi, Haskell and Python to mention a few … Also linux417 got added for our brave beta-testers to play around.

If you already want to test the latest features of the upcoming Manjaro release Illyria, you may checkout our Alpha releases:

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

So please report back and give us feedback for given changes made to our repositories. Users of our 32-bit Distro should read this.

kind regards
