Buckle up, this is a huge update!
Python got updated to 3.6 and a huge amount of other packages depending on it needed to be rebuilt for that reason.
- Mind that some of your packages from the AUR might also need a rebuild.
To identify these, do the stable update first and then check if libraries are still installed in the directory /usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages:
pacman -Qo /usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages
will return the packages owning such files. If this returns empty you don’t need to do anything. If it returns packages from the AUR, you need to reinstall them with
yaourt -S <packagename>
With this update Xorg-server is updated to 1.19. Experience on unstable and testing branches suggests that everything was well prepared and the update should be rather uneventful.
- You will be asked to remove deprecated drivers xf86-input-acecad and xf86-input-joystick. Please confirm that.
freetype2 is going to “rename” terminus-font to
- Please make sure to rename the font accordingly in your settings!
The update of harfbuzz is incompatible with infinality-bundle! This is a serious problem on Plasma 5 and kinit will fail!
- Please consider returning to native freetype2 subpixel rendering or try the updated freetype2-infinality package from here.
New in our repos is cinnamon-sounds, a collection of the original Linuxmint system-sounds for the Mate and Cinnamon desktops.
We have new version of Inkscape (0.92), ruby (2.4) and gcc (6.3.1)
The new default manjaro-KDE themes collection Breath, again designed by @mcder3, is now almost final with: plasma5-themes-breath, breath-wallpaper, breath-icon-theme , breath-dark-icon-theme and sddm-breath-theme - a few more adjustments to the wallpaper are still in preparation.
Xreader has now added epub support, Deepin-desktop received a bugfix and some KDE apps were updated aswell.
All kernels of the 4.x series and our rt-lts-kernel have seen new point releases. With the more progressive linux-rt-manjaro we have now moved on to base-kernel 4.9.
- Linux48 has been labelled End-Of-Life and will be removed in the near future. So please consider moving on to linux49, which is going to be the next LTS kernel.
Security updates include flashplugin and python-crypto.
