I have just updated the Manjaro-Cinnamon release candidate ISO to rc7.
The default panel styling in this version now is what Linuxmint calls the 'modern style', meaning it has grouped window list instead of traditional one and larger icons on the left-hand side.
According to my poll which is still open btw, this setup seems to have become the more popular one meanwhile and also it is the official Cinnamon's default.
However - also similar to what Linuxmint chose to do - I am currently working on a little tool where people will be able to revert to the traditional window list instead. The slightly higher panel with bigger icons I intend to keep anyway.
This (full) ISO also ships with our latest version of calamares-git, which already offers the new office-suite selection (LibreOffice or FreeOffice) during installation.
Note that the live session now does not include any office software at all
Other than that, Manjaro-Cinnamon 18.1.0 rc7 still includes
- Cinnamon 4.2 desktop
- fix for the 'invisibility' issue of our custom menu icon
- fpakman for snaps and flatpak support
- kernel linux 5.2
- latest x-apps and mint-themes
Thank you for posting your findings, comments and suggestions, as always!
Still on the way: xrandr package will be added for completeness in the next rc ISO.
