Seamless update on my XFCE laptop and KDE desktop. WiFi is still breaking off on the Lenovo G50-30, but this seems to be a kernel driver issue which has been bugging me since I bought this computer (I had Ubuntu originally and it was the same). I just have to reconnect regularly. Compiz throws a trantrum every now and then, switching off its components occasionally, but compiz has always been quirky and of course this is not a default module for XFCE. Other than that, things are really smooth after each update.

You may want to switch to WICD, it works for me, without the dropouts in Testing.  See some idea on how-to here:  https://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?topic=5254.msg45980#msg45980

Did initial install of Manjaro xfce 15-12x86-64.iso on my new to me computer Dell Optiflex 990.. Install went fine as always, with system up and running package manager came up with 331 upgrades. Ran pacmanager and it choked looking for keys.. Re initialized keys, killed packages etc. and still no joy. Commented out siglevel in pacman.conf to see if that helps.
Will comment more when I know more. Dual booting with Windows 10 as well on this one.

I am having a few issues.  Update was smooth, but now things are freezing often.  Have had to restart 6 times in the last four hours.  I use Cinnamon as the DE and it seems to do it when I am trying to extract an Archive, download a file, or write an image.  It doesn't matter if the archive is a tar file or iso file, and it doesn't matter what website it is that I am downloading from.  I think one of those two times it froze I was not downloading any files, or anything like that.  I also usually have a slideshow for the background, and when ever Cinnamon crashes, the background always resets to the default when I installed.  It has froze with isousb, winusb, Chrome, terminal extraction, and Pamac while installing packages.  Not sure what is causing the freezes, but it is doing it quite often since the update.  Usually if my computer freezes, the mouse is still moveable and I can ctl-alt-backspace to get out of it.  Not this time.  Everything freezes and I need to hard-restart.

^ Are you still using kernel 3.18.? Go to Manjaro Settings and update your kernel to 4.4 and see if that helps.
OK, so I took the red pill. Now what?

is pip broken (= not supposed to be used) in manjaro / arch? I have a long list of pip packages installed, do I need to remove them all and reinstall them? I can't just install them with yaourt, I get the some error as mentioned above if I try to install them while they still exist ..

pacman is an awesome tool and should be used whenever possible. If a file did not originate from a pacman package, pacman db has no info about it and errors out if it is found during installation. This includes cases when new pacman packages are pulled in as dependencies during upgrades: pacman has no idea that you have that pip package already installed.

You can always use `--force` switch to overwrite those files but it's best to `pip uninstall` any foreign pip packages to prevent these errors. There is advice available how to find foreign files in your system.

While not all possible packages are available in the repos/aur everything available should be replaced. I actually used `pip2arch` and `makepkg` to replace even those pip packages that were not available at the time.

This also applies to other package managers: npm, gem, etc

I gave it a shot with --force .. will refrain from pip ...

had no issues with npm so far, probably because I installed packages that were not available in pacman / aur ?
