Manjaro Gellivara was a great release! Now we are proud to announce our second release candidate of v17.0.2, which fixes a lot of issues we had with our original release of Gellivara.

Features of this updated release Gellivara:

  • We updated the stock kernel to linux49 4.9 LTS
  • We updated the Xorg-Stack to v1.19 series
  • We released Pamac v4.3 with native AUR-Support
  • We enhanced and improved our Manjaro Tools & Profiles
  • MHWD we adopted a more efficient way to handle libglx binaries
  • Some of our themes got updated and new got designed
  • Latest manjaro-settings-manager and manjaro-hardware-detection
  • Latest Calamares (see changelog)
  • Latest Plasma5, Apps and Framework and QT

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

[Stable Update] 2017-06-18 – Kernels, Plasma, KDE Apps, Firefox, Thunderbird, Mesa

system_software_updateHi community,

for our KDE-Lovers we have updated KDE Apps to v17.04.2, Plasma to v5.10.2 and Frameworks to v5.35. Also QT got updated to v5.9, which resulted in a rebuild of other packages.

We are also happy to present the latest Mozilla software to you. Firefox is now at v54.0. Thunderbird on the other hand is now at v52.2.

Also this update brings a huge rebuild of perl packages. Please check if you have installed some packages from the AUR which depending on an older release of perl and remove them before updating.

Other things to mention with this update-pack:

  • We finally found some way to fix the Calamares crashes on some partition types. Thx flies also out to Andrius and Adriaan from KDE for fixing this long lasted bug. You may review the changelog.
  • Fabian filled the upstream bug for Octopi crashing with QT 5.9, as we thought. In the end it was no theme issue at all, rather some compiler oops with gcc7 and the alpm-backend after Marcus gave us the clue where to look. Solution was to use clang as compiler to get all going.
  • Philip released again Greg’s kernels as usual. This time almost all extramodules needed to be compiled due abi-changes.
  • The glibc/mkinitcpio-busybox-issue should be fixed now on i686. Please report if otherwise.
  • Last but not least Frede finally released pacman-mirrors v4.2.

As usual you find the regular upstream packages, such as eric, haskell and python. Please give us feedback and report any issues you may see with this update.

kind regards
Philip Müller and the Manjaro Development Team

[Stable Update] 2017-05-12 – Kernels, KDE, KDE Apps, Gnome, Browsers

system_software_updateHi community,

this is one of our bigger updates and will bring a lot of different changes to Manjaro. It is recommended to read also some of our testing announcements depending on the topic. It is strongly recommended to do this update as a full update and not partial!. Please use pacman from a terminal for not breaking your system.

So what changed? Well, we started with Plasma5, Gnome, VirtualBox, OpenSSL, ICU, added then Nvidia, XFCE-GTK3, X-Apps, Kodi-Plugins, moved on to Firefox, X-Apps, Gstreamer, Bluez, had some Kernels, NoSystemd, Python, Haskell, then worked on Kernel, Virtualbox, Haskell, Gnome and finalized with NetworkManager, Chromium, KDE Apps, Pamac.

Most might have some issues with the OpenSSL or ICU update. We have some recommendation for some Steam Games.

So take your time with this update and ask us anything, if some might go not so well for you. There will be a solution for it for sure. Please give us feedback as usual and report any issues you may see with this update.

kind regards
Philip Müller and the Manjaro Development Team
