Since we managed to put out our second final review of Manjaro Ellada, we are already working on our next release we codenamed Fringilla. With this update we try to fix the known networkmanager issues, updated some kernels, Plasma to 5.7.4 Apps to 16.08, added some Haskell packages and reworked all our settings for Manjaro-Tools 0.13.5. Additionally we switched to Xorg-Server 1.18 series and re-introduced matching packages for Catalyst drivers, so they are still working.
Archlinux upstream fixes are now from: Thu Sep 1 23:59 CEST 2016.
Please report any issues you may have with this update. Also read our troubleshoots to avoid known issues. A detailed list can be found here.

Issues with updating MATE
Some users have mate-menu installed from AUR. Please remove this package if you use the GTK2 version of MATE before trying to update. If you have a different issue with updating, please post.
LibreOffice and GTK3
LibreOffice might be broken on gtk-based Desktop Environments. Workaround would be to force a look to Libreoffice by editing
/etc/profile.d/libreoffice*sh. We recommend to uncomment
SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk. Our KDE edition isn’t affected by this issue.
With this we updated Gnome and GTK to 3.20. This will break most of the themes, which will be fixed if and when their developers decide to update them. Some GTK 3.20-compliant themes are ready now - see further down this post.
The new default Manjaro GTK theme, which is GTK 3.20 compatible, is Vertex-Maia
You can install it with:
sudo pacman -Sy vertex-maia-themes vertex-maia-icon-theme xcursor-maia
KDE users should default to Maia theme:
sudo pacman -Sy maia-icon-theme gtk-theme-maia plasma5-themes-maia xcursor-maia
QT apps style with GTK - only needed for non-KDE desktop environments!
With QT 5.7 you need to install qt5-styleplugins and qt5ct and configure your system to have an unified look again.
If you have issues with ufw not working anymore, you have to copy your custom rules to a different folder. Do it like this:
sudo cp -v /usr/lib/ufw/user.rules.pacsave /etc/ufw/user.rules sudo cp -v /usr/lib/ufw/user6.rules.pacsave /etc/ufw/user6.rules
Steam might not work due incompatiblity of libgpg. You my try followed command to “fix” it:
find ~/.steam/root/ \( -name "libgcc_s.so*" -o -name "libstdc++.so*" -o -name "libxcb.so*" -o -name "libgpg-error.so*" \) -print -delete
find ~/.local/share/Steam/ \( -name "libgcc_s.so*" -o -name "libstdc++.so*" -o -name "libxcb.so*" -o -name "libgpg-error.so*" \) -print -delete
