I had an update today, but can’t find any announcement about it and manjaro reports about a new kernel 6.5.01 is this already stable and recommended?

This side not yet, so I think you just have to wait for the announcement.
I would say a “recommended” kernel is a LTS kernel. 6.5 is final since 2 days…give arch and manjaro some time.
Only the LTS kernels are recommended, and at present time, the most recent LTS kernel is still 6.1.
The recommendation you got was probably with regard to the near-future deprecation of 6.4, given that 6.4 is
not an LTS kernel.
I was just a little worried that an inappropriate unstable update was delivered because I couldn’t find the announcement, usually I’m always waiting for information but today I missed it …
but now I see that updates are available on my other systems too
Very stable on my system…
No, sometimes the announcement thread does come a little late. I too am waiting for it to appear before I update my system, but if it hasn’t appeared yet before 13:00 UTC today, I’ll go ahead with it anyway.
After all, I’ve been monitoring the most recent
thread, and whatever was updated there will now be in the Testing Updates thread. And so far, it’s not looking too scary. Stable Updates
Manjaro Settings Manager does not recommend it
You can certainly try it. Especially new hardware usually benefits from the recent version.
Why do you have doubt about trying it out?
If you want to wait a bit, you can check here when Arch moves to 6.5:
Arch Linux - linux 6.4.12.arch1-1 (x86_64)
In fact, if something goes wrong, you can switch to 6.1.49-1
For me its the first time, that i see a stable update appears without a announcement thread.
And the last stable thread is also closed since 9-10hours already.
6.5 working fine here, with Intel I7 and Nvidia RTX, Just finished throwing benchmarks at it and NO crashes or Kernel Panics.
I don’t know, man…
I’ve just posted this…
As you can read
here, version 20230827-2 of the archlinux-appstream-data package was only just adopted from Arch into Manjaro Unstable on 2023.08.27, and then from there made its way into Manjaro Testing yesterday (2023.08.28).
Now, today (2023.08.29), there is apparently a Stable Update without a announcement thread. In and of itself, this is not such a worrisome event, given that the announcement threads may always be posted with a few hours of delay if this is more convenient…
ouch, thanks for investigating into this further!
it seems there are also issues with missing V-Box support for linux-6.5.0-1
Virtualbox works just fine for me under 6.5.0-1.
