Manjaro 21.3 Ruah released!

Manjaro 21.3 - Ruah

image

Since we released Qonos end of last year all our developer teams worked hard to get the next release of Manjaro out there. We call it Ruah.

This release features the final release of Calamares v3.2. Partition module gained more support for LUKS partitions. Users module now has lists of forbidden login- and host-names, to avoid settings that will mess up the install.

The GNOME edition has received a major update to Gnome 42. A new global dark UI style preference has arrived. This can be used to request that apps use a dark UI style instead of light. The new setting can be found in the new Appearance panel in the Settings app, and is followed by most GNOME apps.

GTK 4 and libadwaita provide next generation capabilities for GNOME applications, and many GNOME apps have started to use these components for GNOME 42. As a result, these apps have better performance, a new modern UI style, and new user interface elements.

GNOME 42 includes a valuable set of performance improvements, as the GNOME community continues its work to enhance system speed and resource usage.

The Plasma edition comes with the latest Plasma 5.24 series. Plasma is all about customization, and we have worked on making the process clear and simple so you can adapt your environment exactly to how you like it.

Desktop Panels are now easier to move around and stick to any edge you want, as you can now drag them from anywhere on their toolbar while in Edit Mode. You can better leverage the power of multiple desktops in Plasma 5.24 with the new Overview effect, which is much similar to how GNOME Overview works. This allows you to get a view of different workspaces, interact with all the various windows and applications you have open in the background and the ability to search your system too.

Now it’s easy to become a KRunner whiz: click on the question mark icon on the toolbar and KRunner will show a list of available plugins and how to use them. Click on a plugin from the list and you’ll see all the information you need to use it to its fullest.

With our XFCE edition, we have now Xfce 4.16. The window manager received lots of updates and improvements again in the area of compositing and GLX. Support for fractional scaling was added to the display dialog, along with highlighting the preferred mode of a display with an asterisk and adding aspect ratios next to resolutions. The settings manager has improved search and filter capabilities. Thunar file manager received a boatload of fixes and quite a few notable features, including pause for copy/move operations, support for queued file transfer, remembering view settings per directory and support for transparency in Gtk themes.

Kernel 5.15 LTS is used for this release, such as the latest drivers available to date. With 5.4 LTS and 5.10 LTS we offer additional support for older hardware as needed.

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

Because of this message I assume not, but can I upgrade to Ruah without uninstalling first?

Welcome to the world of Rolling. You install once, then the distribution updates continuously without having to reinstall like Ubuntu for example.
Edit: the version is only a snapshot of the ongoing evolution of Manjaro.

Thanks you :upside_down_face:

So good. These two words fascinate me…

I have downloaded the images KDE and XFCE.

:slightly_smiling_face:

After some theming break when updating in Qonos release, I’m willing to give it a 2 second chance because Manjaro is SO beautiful.
But, the thing is, because I use my laptop for work I’d be in need of a more-stable-than-stable branch. I like fixing when something breaks, I enjoy learning about Linux by doing this, the problem is that sometimes I can’t afford to spend time on tracking bugs and fixing them. I hope you ever consider that. Love your work, it’s AWESOME!

Sounds like a point release distro would suit you better.

I use the unstable branch and it’s been stable as can be for years.

Thanks for your suggestion Yochanan.
I’ve been using Fedora because of that, but Manjaro always keeps me coming back to it.

You can always dual boot. Maybe use Fedora for work and Manjaro for play.

You do realise you can time it so you apply updates when time suiys you, right? Like over a weekend…

If you have all of your current updates, you should already have it.

Terminal:

[keith@bug ~]$ lsb_release -drc
Description:	Manjaro Linux
Release:	21.3.0
Codename:	Ruah
[keith@bug ~]$

I do realise it, but, it’s almost automatic for me to open it up and type sudo pacman -Syyu in case there’s something new … and sometimes I’ve regrets for having done that, hahahahaha
I think, for the time being, running updates on weekends sounds like an affordable option.

I’m downloading this iso in order to throw a fresh install and be more careful when updating.
And this time I will set a separate /home.

My installation is over 8 years old, and completely up to date. :wink:

Theming is a thing. I assume you used Gnome edition, as there it is known that Gnome 42, when it came out dropped/changed some theming support. Our developers tried to get that fixed on the fresh ISO. Ask @Yochanan to write a more in detail and easy to understand tutorial to fix theme issues on Gnome, if that is your UI of choice.

It definitely is my DE of choice. And I love it how you guys have customized it. In 5 minutes I’ll be installing it from scratch, just to try and fix theme related stuff along the weekend.
Thanks for your suggestions.
