Manjaro Cinnamon with newest Cinnamon?

I’m a Linux Mint Cinnamon user who would like to switch to Manjaro Cinnamon because of the rolling release BUT I noticed that Linux Mint Cinnamon 20.3 is using Cinnamon 5.2.7 and Manjaro 21.2.1 Cinnamon is using Cinnamon 5.0.5.

Is there a way to get the most recent Cinnamon?

Arch Linux - cinnamon 5.2.7-1 (x86_64)

It was just updated to 5.2.7-1 in Arch 5 hours ago.
You might have to wait just a little bit longer for it to land here, and then through the Branches.

The new Cinnamon packages are now available in the unstable branch.

You do know there’s been bugs reported with the latest mint release? I know there’s been an issue with reboot not working for some users. Everytime mint releases a new version its normally the second or third point release that’s got no bugs.
I’m running cinnamon myself and would rather wait a few weeks for any bugs to be caught and fixed before I get it. Manjaro-cinnamon works perfectly as it is

Thanks everyone. It’s not my main machine so I’ll try it and it is buggy I’ll go back to the standard Manjaro Cinnamon.
