Welcome to another stable update. Since this update is huge we recommend to install it from within a terminal:
pamac upgrade or
sudo pacman -Syu
So what do we have with this one? Mostly we focused on the major Gnome, which got released earlier last month. The entire desktop now uses fewer system resources, which means you can run more apps at once without encountering performance issues.
Another main focus was on Pamac. We hope it will be the snappiest release we ever did. Now the CLI and UI feature the same functions, which makes your life maintaining your installation of Manjaro even more effectiv.
Here the brief overall changes with this update:
- Gnome 3.30 got added to our repos
- Cinnamon and Deepin got renewed with new features and fixes
- we released Pamac v7.1.1
- Pamac also gained functionality to edit PKGBUILDs from AUR packages (please test it via pamac-dev)
- The Kernel got updated to v4.19-rc7
- most of our other Kernels got also updated. The #bladebook gets fully supported with v4.18.8 and higher
- Some fixes to SPL/ZFS
- Further fixes to Pamac-Dev
- NetworkManager is now at 1.14.0
- LibreOffice got updated to 6.1.1
- added the Hibernation option to the lockscreen of Plasma-Workspace
- we have now the latest Nvidia 410.57 driver added
- Wine is now at 3.17
- Mesa got updated to 18.2.2
- LLVM and CLANG got updated to 7.0
- Firefox-Dev is now at 63.0b10
- I managed to complete my work on the smooth bootup experience
- upstream fixes incl. haskell and python packages
We hope with all these changes Manjaro to be more efficient for you all.
