Manjaro 17.0.5 released

Today we update once more our install media to version 17.0.5.
On the one hand this is a minor bugfix release addressing issues with our graphical installer Calamares‘ handling of BTRFS and locales, but additionally we were able to also add a brand new version of package manager Pamac, introducing a new categorized menu structure using appstream.
Today’s updated ISOs also include our 2017-09-16 stable package update.

Please note that Gellivara will be the last edition of Manjaro Linux supporting 32bit architecture.

We hope you will enjoy this release as much as we did creating it.

The Xfce edition remains our flagship offering and has received the attention it deserves. Few can claim to offer such a polished, integrated and leading-edge Xfce experience. We ship Xfce 4.12 with this release of Manjaro. We mainly focused on polishing the user experience on the desktop and window manager, and on updating some components to take advantage of newly available technologies such as switching to a new Vertex-Maia theme, we already using known as Maia for our KDE edition.

Our KDE edition continues to deliver this powerful, mature and feature-rich desktop environment with a unique look-and-feel, and with the perks of Manjaro’s latest tools.

We ship now Plasma 5.10 desktop in combination with the latest KDE-Apps 17.08. It was a huge step to get it all playing together smoothly and to give the user experience the same feeling as our KDE4 editions of the past.

GNOME being a powerful, userfriendly, easy to use, customizable and fully accesible GTK3+ desktop environment, the Manjaro team has decided to offer the GNOME edition as a third official flavour with the 17.0 release.

Manjaro-Gnome 17.0

The Manjaro Gnome edition stays close to vanilla GNOME while of course being customized and configured for out-of-the-box usability with all the proven features of a Manjaro edition like Manjaro-Hardware-Detection, Manjaro-Settings-Manager, Pamac package management and the new Manjaro-Hello welcome screen.

The Manjaro Settings Manager (MSM) now provides an easy-to-use graphical interface for installing and removing the many series of kernels we offer. Manjaro’s selection of readily available kernels remains the most extensive of all Linux distribution we know of. At the time of this release, twelve kernel-series are available directly from our binary repositories, ranging from the mature and rock-solid 3.10 series to the latest 4.13 release. Additionally we offer two realtime kernel series. Such a wide array of available kernel options results in extensive hardware support, getting the most out of your system for you, be it old or new.

With our console-based net-installer Manjaro-Architect you can either install any of Manjaro’s official or Community maintained editions or alternatively configure freely your custom built system.


A variety of Community Editions, featuring desktops Budgie, Cinnamon, Deepin, i3, LXDE, LXQT and Mate are available from the community download page

[Stable Update] 2017-09-16 – Kernels, Mesa, VirtualBox, Pamac, KDE, GCC, Removal of OpenRC

system_software_updateHi community,

with just over one week we have a new update for you. We updated Mesa to v17.2 series, which includes new drivers and other goodies, updated some of our kernels, added latest KDE Frameworks v5.38 plus having GCC v7.2 as our latest compiler. If you have difficulties to update, please install additional multilib packages of gcc first, so a full upgrade is possible.

Additionally we have the latest VirtualBox and Bluez packages plus Python and CertBot renewed. KDE locales got prepared to support Plasma v5.11 series. Last but not least we fixed some BTRFS and LOCALES issues we had within Calamares, when installed for example with German locales.

Guillaume released Pamac v6.0. It now supports appstream. With this update, however, we also removed the support of OpenRC and decided to ditch linux312 and linux48 series. Please move to another kernel series, if you still use those. No extramodule updates will be provided for these series.

Please report back and give us feedback for given changes made to our repositories.

kind regards
