FOSDEM19

Some of our core developers will join PINE64 Inc. at FOSDEM19 in Brussels. We will establish an even more closer relationship with this ARM based company. Also we are looking forward to see your reactions on the big announcement PINE64 Inc. will do at FOSDEM19. Stay tuned for any upcoming news.

Partnership with FCS Linux Aarhus

We are happy to announce a new partnership with FCS Linux Aarhus owned by @fhdk. This enables us to offer you Laptops with Manjaro pre-installed and Manjaro Stickers you can use on your own hardware or gift them to a friend. For each sale FCS will donate a percentage to the Manjaro project.

Manjaro v18.0.2 released!

To end the year with a high note we updated our flagship ISOs of Manjaro Illyria with the latest packages. It comes with refreshed packages and updated tools. You may want to download our XFCE Edition with the latest 4.13 packages, aswell as our most recent styling efforts. Our KDE fans may try our KDE Edition with the latest KDE v5.14 instead.

@philm
I just built and uploaded my build of firefox-kde-opensuse to version 64.0.2 yesterday. This package is now built using the same compilers and build options as the regular version as well.

You can pull it from here if you haven’t already:
http://arch.netrunner.com/netrunner-testing/x86_64/firefox-kde-opensuse-64.0.2-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

Note: I may be changing the file name to firefox-plasmazilla on my next build since I’m no longer following Thaodan’s pakaging from the UAR. However, this name is not set in stone, if anyone has any other suggestions, please PM me.
