Thanks for the release! Really good work. Already installed it. However, had some problems:

1) first reboot -> terminal. Had to install the nvidia drivers via mhwd although I started the live session before with the non-free drivers (I thought the installer then takes care about it?)

2) multilib wasn´t reachable via pacman when tried to update its database(s), so I commented it out.

3) pekwm menu: manjaro-settings-manager --gui is missing a gksu in the menu config file

beside this, a really great build! thank you all very much.

I installed ManjaroPek it on a second partition of an old Manjaro LXDE laptop: it seems very promising... good job!

Generally I'm not fan of full "flat and square" styles, but I found the design well done in this case. 8)

I also had the multilib issue (solved by commenting it out).

The memory consumption is very lightweight.

Unfortunately Xorg is consuming a lot of CPU: 10-30% with an old CPU and integrated graphic card but 2GB of RAM. I don't have this issue with my old LXDE configuration.

Other issues:
   - some checkboxes are not visible during installation (probably related to the visual theme: grey box on grey background without visible frame)
   - YouTube video can't be put in fullscreen mode in Qupzilla and are slower than usual under LXDE.

The high CPU usage seems to be related to Conky: after killing the 2 conky processes Xorg uses about 2-3% of CPU (old laptop with limited mono-core CPU).

Solved by installing Firefox: YouTube videos can be played in fullscreen with a better framerate.

After some Google search it seems that Qupzilla is unable to open YouTube videos in fullscreen. :-\

I won't be installing/testing the final release ISOs. I'm still running on the PRE2 release (with all the updates and changes from the related thread https://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?topic=17086.0) and all I've done is to run a system update and see no need to reinstall as it's really been running superbly I have to say.

I love everything about it, good job to all involved!  ;)
