[Stable Update] 2018-01-05 – Kernels, KPTI, Plasma, Calamares, TLP

system_software_updateHi community,

we hope you all had a great start into 2018! We are happy to present the first stable update for 2018. Thx to your feedback we could fix [some issue within tlp, updated Plasma to v5.11.5, worked on Calamares and fixed some regressions in update-notifier.

Additionally we worked close with upstream to include the kernel page-table-isolation into most of our LTS kernels. More about 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] 2017-12-31 – Kernels, Xorg-Server, Mesa, Compiz, Wine, Firefox

system_software_updateHi community,

this is our second try with Xorg-Server v1.19.6. This time we also updated our Mesa-Stack and changed the handling of dri/drm. Some reported Compiz not working with this. Therefore we had it updated to the latest source currently available.

Friends of Gimp may try out the latest development edition of this fantastic graphical art app. Again we have the latest Firefox and Wine added. Also linux49 and linux414 got updated to their latest point-releases.

This marks the last update of Manjaro in 2017. We wish you all the best for next year. Have fun and celebrate with family and friends!

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] 2017-12-28 – Linux414, Calamares, Xorg-Server, Grub-Live-Theme

system_software_updateHi community,

it is always difficult to find the right timeslot for a stable ISO release. So we now try the fourth release canidate today. Package-wise only few things changed:

  • we downgraded the Xorg-Server back to v1.19.5
  • fixed some network issue within v4.14 kernel series
  • fixed a regression in Calamares, which prevented us from installing Manjaro on fresh HDDs
  • worked on the grub-live-theme
  • added usual upstream packages

With all this, we hope we will have the stable ISOs available for you guys soon.

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.

We mostly worked on Calamares, Xorg-Server, QT 5.10 and our Kernels. Also the latest Thunderbird we added to this update-pack. Else you have the regular upstream changes like Haskell and Python rebuilds, latest XFCE4-Gtk3 packages and smaller fixes to random packages.

Manjaro v17.1-rc2 released (G,K,X)

Manjaro Gellivara was a great release! Now we are proud to announce v17.1-rc2, our hopefully last Release-Candidate for our new Release-Series Hakoila.

It took us a little to fix all issues we found so far in our development cycle of Hakoila. This new Release-Series offers a newer kernel, latest improvements to Calamares and our Architect installers.

Gellivara was the last edition of Manjaro Linux supporting 32bit Architecture. Read more about this decision here.

Features of this updated release Hakoila:

  • Latest LTS kernel from linux414 series
  • Latest Xorg-Stack from v1.19 series
  • Latest Plasma5, Apps and Framework and QT
  • Updates to our graphical package managers
  • Enhancements and Improvements to our Manjaro Tools & Profiles
  • MHWD adopted a more efficient way to handle libglx binaries
  • Updated and new designed themes and styles
  • Updates on Calamares (see changelog)

We hope you enjoy this release and let us know what you think of Hakolia.

kind regards, Philip Müller and the Manjaro Development Team

[Stable Update] 2017-12-23 – Kernels, KDE-Apps, Cinnamon, Deepin, Xorg, LibreOffice

system_software_updateHi community,

Normally you calm down a little in December, however it is a little busy for us getting Manjaro v17.1 ready before ending this year. So with this update you get new install medias to try out. Also we worked on improving our graphical installer and also ship the architect installer with our v17.1-rc2 medias.

We mostly worked on the network issue we had with the e1000e Intel driver for linux318, linux44, linux49 and linux414 kernel series. Also some JADE patches went into our new desktop environment. Cinnamon got usual updates, Firefox-Developer-Edition got added and VirtualBox got upgraded.

KDE fans will love the new Apps v17.12. Also we ship now QT v5.10. Calamares recognizes now existing LVM volumes and is able to install on them now. We fixed some small things in Mesa v17.3 and updated Haskell and Python as usual.

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.

[Stable Update] 2017-12-16 – Kernels, Mesa, Deepin, Firefox, Python, Haskell

system_software_updateHi community,

Normally you calm down a little in December, however it is a little busy for us getting Manjaro v17.1 ready before ending this year. So with this update you get new install medias to try out. Also we worked on improving our graphical installer and started to ship the architect installer also with our medias.

For friends of Office we also used our own Jade-Application-Kit to provide MS Office Online as native linux apps (you need still internet to get it working).

So what else changed so far? We had updated some of our themes, pushed out some new deepin packages, had the usual haskell and python updates, most kernels got renewed, firefox got some security updates and mesa got updated to v17.3.

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] 2017-11-19 – Kernels, Deepin, Python, Haskell, Firefox Quantum

system_software_updateHi community,

most of you will talk about Firefox with this update. It claims to be twice faster than before, 30% memory usage and having a powerful private mode.

We also updated Deepin packages once more, renewed most of our Kernels and had the regular Python and Haskell updates.

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.
