[Stable Update] 2018-02-17 – Kernels, KDE, MATE, Firefox, LibreOffice, Mesa, Systemd

system_software_updateHi community,

it took us a while to prepare this update-pack. Mostly it is due my busy work life at the moment. However managed to squeze the best new open source software for you into this one. For package details please look here. We recommend all newcomers to Manjaro, please install Manjaro from our fresh v17.1.5 install ISOs.

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

[Stable Update] 2018-02-03 – Kernels, LibreOffice, Browsers, Thunderbird, PHP, Haskell

system_software_updateHi community,

We have some new Kernels, removed some of our EOL kernels, pushed out some Browser updates, worked on Architect Installer, updated VLC-Nightly to v3.0-rc9, had some regular upstream updates like PHP7, latest Python/Haskell updates/rebuilds and renewed some of our Themes. Additionally we released new install medias (v17.1.4) based on this update.

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.

[Stable Update] 2018-01-29 – Kernels, Mesa, Xorg-Server, Browsers, MSM, MHWD, GCC

system_software_updateHi community,

with this we updated most of our Kernels, Mesa, Firefox, GCC. We also worked on our Adapta theme, downgraded the Intel microcode as needed puls reworked our Firmwares a little in regard of iwlwifi.

As usual we have some Haskell and Python rebuilds/updates. Bernhard and I worked on the Real-Time Kernels and updated them both to v4.14 series. We use now meta-pkgs to define them for you. Some work went into our Steam-Client and we managed to get more extra-modules compiled for our v4.15 kernel series.

It seems that our french community had some issues changing wallpapers within our XFCE edition. This is now addressed and fixed with our v17.1.3 ISOs by default. For installed systems we recommend to use ‘/usr/share/backgrounds/xfce’ as default folder. The new package will automatically create the needed symlinks for wallpapers added to ‘/usr/share/backgrounds’ from now on.

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.

[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.

[Stable Update] 2018-01-12 – Kernels, Microcodes, Nvidia, Firefox, Boost, Cleanup

system_software_updateHi community,

we updated once more some of our Kernels, added the latest Mesa v17.3.2, renewed Systemd and released the latest Intel Microcode, which prevents issues with Spectre and Meltdown.

We also added some more fixes to gcc, which prevents issues with Spectre and Meltdown and needed boost rebuild. Additionally we fixed some issues within Nvidia drivers and Octopi, updated our Firefox developer edition, updated our AMD drivers support, had some Python and Haskell rebuilds and the usual Repo-Cleanups. linux316 gained the needed KPTI patches.

It is recommended to reboot your system, so microcode updates on Intel and AMD based systems get loaded. Possible with following kernels series: linux44, linux49, linux414 and linux415. Please avoid other kernel series for now, this includes also realtime kernels.

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.

[Stable Update] 2018-01-07 – Browsers, Nvidia, PHP, Compiz, Adapta

system_software_updateHi community,

as usual Arch started to cleanup their repos, so some of this already affects this update.

Package-wise we updated most of our Browsers, renewed the Nvidia driver, updated PHP and fixed compiz plus issues in our adapta themes.
