I'm happy to announce a release candidate for Manjaro Awesome. This build is based on Manjaro Xfce 18.1.0-rc4.
As was announced in this topic, from now on the Awesome edition will mimic the package selection of the Xfce edition (except, of course, the DE itself). Even though Awesome is a minimal window manager, I am of the opinion that the rest of the distro does not need to be minimal. Minimalists, don't despair however: whereas the full ISO is 1.98GB, I also released a minimal ISO of only 1.21GB.
Most notable additions (note that these are all absent from the minimal iso):
- a number of fonts
- a number of drivers related to libva
- libreoffice-fresh was replaced by libreoffice-still

Check the Testing Update 2019-07-16 topic for known issues with packages shared with the Xfce release.
Are there packages that you think don't make sense on the Awesome edition? Is anything not working like you expected? Please provide some feedback on what you think about this release.
