We are happy to announce the stable release of Manjaro 15.12 (Capella)!

After almost three months of development we can present to you now Capella, our latest instance of Manjaro Linux. This release comes with XFCE 4.12, KDE Plasma 5.5, 4.1.0 LTS kernel and all the usual Manjaro and upstream updates. We worked mostly on our tools and the graphical installers.

Noteable changes in our tools:
  • kcm module of Manjaro-Settings got reworked
  • several enhancements to Pamac and Octopi
  • optimizations and fixes to Manjaro-Tools
  • a lvm issue was fixed within Thus
Package-wise we have following changes:

KDE Apps got updated to 15.12, Virtualbox is now at 5.0.12, mesa is at 11.0.8, wine at 1.8 and the kernel at 4.4-rc6. Bumblebee is now also fixed for OpenRC and small fixes went into our samba-share thunar plugin.

To round-up this update, you find here some additional packages. Some linux3xx kernels got updated, last-minute fixes for Plasma 5, haskell updates, renewed Deepin desktop 2015 and fixes to firefox complete Manjaro 15.12.

Archlinux upstream fixes are now from: Tue Dec 22 12:25:53 CET 2015.

It is always good to check for updated packages, even we don't notify you about them. As usual people using our testing branch will help us to get snaps over to our stable branch almost smoothly. For notifications on daily bases please take a look at our mailing list:

Kind regards,
Philip Müller and the Manjaro Development Team

Update looks smooth,

However xfce4-panel not getting loaded at start,
I have to manually run it from terminal

trying to find out how to stick xfce4-panel in session startup
BTW, I can see xfce4-panel in session startup and configured "Restart Style" to Immediately,
I have also manually saved the session with the above setting, but still the panel wont start up

rest all looks smooth as always

Thanks for the Awesome OS


As a side note, are we getting Arc GTK Based manjaro flavoured theme? ARC looks awesome

did the update and restarted, logged in all looked good and fine, then after 20 seconds plasma crashed, I clicked the Ok whatever button, new crash message informs me that kwin crashed, I shrug and reboot one more time just for good measure, now my second monitor is no longer properly configured, resolution is off, it's not primary, so I run the display settings and try to fix it, kde panel won't jump to my primary monitor, instead I get horrible redraw errors, see here: http://h.dropcanvas.com/2ep6l/manjaro_update2.png

Not a biggy, but I'd thought I post it..

Hello there,

noob question, while upgrading the system asked me:

Code: [Select]
Starte vollständige Systemaktualisierung...
:: kdegraphics-ksnapshot durch extra/spectacle ersetzen? [J/n] j
:: kdemultimedia-ffmpegthumbs durch extra/ffmpegthumbs ersetzen? [J/n] j
:: kdepim-kalarm durch extra/kalarm ersetzen? [J/n] j
:: kdepim-kleopatra durch extra/kleopatra ersetzen? [J/n] j
:: signon durch extra/signond ersetzen? [J/n] j
Löse Abhängigkeiten auf...
Suche nach in Konflikt stehenden Paketen...
:: kdebase-lib und kde-templates stehen miteinander in Konflikt. kde-templates entfernen? [j/N]

Meaning that kdebase-lib and kde-templates are in conflict.
Should I replace kdebase-lib with kde-templates?

Thanks

Ok, I tried and this is what happens:

Code: [Select]
:: kdebase-lib und kde-templates stehen miteinander in Konflikt. kde-templates entfernen? [j/N] j
:: libkdepim und kdepim-libkdepim stehen miteinander in Konflikt. kdepim-libkdepim entfernen? [j/N] j
:: akonadi und akonadi-qt4 stehen miteinander in Konflikt. akonadi-qt4 entfernen? [j/N] j
:: kdepim-runtime und kdepim4-runtime stehen miteinander in Konflikt. kdepim4-runtime entfernen? [j/N] j
:: libkolab und libkolab4 stehen miteinander in Konflikt. libkolab4 entfernen? [j/N] j

So a lot of conflicts that I answered all with Yes.
So, you mean I can proceed saftely? Or should I break the Upgrade?

Thanks again

looks like you're upgrading from kde4 to plasma 5 ? It's the right thing to do, if it works or breaks is for you to find out and report back to us  :o

It seems ark 15.12 doesn't like unrar package, you will need to install the rar package from the aur:

yaourt -Sa rar
