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

With this we updated some of our kernels, plasma5, cinnamon, python2, alsa and fresh opensource drivers for AMD graphic cards. We removed the 4.3 kernel series. We recommend to update your system to 4.4 LTS series right now.

Also Guillaume was working for some time on a new design for pamac. Even if there is still some work to do, he wants some feedback on the work he had done so far. That for he proposed a preview version.



It has a new design:

- double click on a package name to view details.
- in dependencies view, click on a dependency to view its details
- you can continue browsing packages while a transaction is running

So tell us what you think about it on github!

Archlinux upstream fixes are now from: Sat Apr 9 12:17:53 CEST 2016.

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:

https://lists.manjaro.org/pipermail/manjaro-packages/

Kind regards,
Philip Müller and the Manjaro Development Team

Herzlichen Glühstrumpf Philip.

Update went super smooth and no probs at all. I love my Manajaro when it sails so steady.

Oh, now that I'm just here: Don't you think it's time to retire that stupid Xface and lift MATE up to official distro status? It's much better but the maintainers always going awol doesn't help it becoming THE desktop it deserves to be.

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

Be patient, surely your mirror server is not yet updated :)
