We are happy to announce our tenth update of Manjaro 15.12 (Capella)!

With this we update blender, calibre, cinelerra, espeak and guvcview and have patched kernel 4.1.18 to properly fix last week's cryptsetup issue. Most Bspwm- and Deepin-packages receive an updated aswell.

Archlinux upstream fixes are now of: Sun Feb 28 08:36:16 CET 2016.

It is always good to check for updated packages, even when 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 a daily basis please subscribe to our mailing list.

Kind regards,
Philip Müller and the Manjaro Development Team

Update went smooth for me. However, apacman is currently broken. Yes, I know, y'all don't support AUR stuff, I get it. But anyone using apacman reading this should fix their apacman since it won't find any AUR packages anymore right now (which means it also can't update itself once fixed).

See https://github.com/oshazard/apacman/issues/56 on how to fix it.

What's apacman? Is it pamac? Pamac might have issues with AUR https://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?topic=31063

It's not pamac but I've been wondering, too, if there is a connection:

???
For me AUR search in pamac works normally, though...

I can confirm that the crypto issue has been fixed for encrypted root installations with 4.1.18 kernel (LTS).
You can now update without getting locked out of the system.
While I may not always have the correct solution, my input could lead you in the right direction...
If you don't know what a command does, then type 'man <command>' or '<command> --help' to find out.

Brilliant! Everything worked well.
I noticed a wayland section in /etc/sddm.conf does that mean it's on its way?
Thank you all for you hard work and dedication.

Another excellent, smooth update! Seems to have resolved a quirky issue with the Youtube plugin on Kodi.

VLC didn't work after the update. A quick reinstall fixed it though. Weird.

As usual for me (very vanilla setup with an older MBR/BIOS PC) everything went smoothly, not a single issue so far in all my time using Manjaro KDE.

One thing I did notice that was once a minor annoyance has now been fixed in fact, apparently. I noticed that in updating my 4.1 kernel, Manjaro's grub2 finally did its os-prober thing in a timely manner. It used to take several minutes, now just a few, if that. Kudos to whoever fixed that, or maybe it's just dumb luck!

Perfect update on my Machine. 3+ years running my business on Manjaro & still feels like a rock.

More power to Phil, core team & everyone contributing to OS & community.

Much appreciated!!

With this and the previous update, the touchpad on my laptop didn't work on the first boot after update. Rebooting fixes the issue.
