I'm happy to announce another review of Manjaro 15.12 (Capella)!

With this we worked again on manjaro-settings-manager. Now we have two
notifiers available. Since we switched over to KF5 technology some of our
users were not so happy about these new dependencies. We now tried to get them
to a bare minimum. This means we have now splitted MSM into four packages.

Also we have regular updates like VirtualBox 5.0.20, Andromeda theme 0.1.2 and
haskell updates.

Archlinux upstream fixes are now from: Sun May 1 17:39:08 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

With this we worked again on manjaro-settings-manager. Now we have two
notifiers available.

Question of clarification, it does not appear to be that the notifier is updated by default. I assume I need to install the appropriate package. Since I am using xfce I installed "manjaro-settings-manager-notifier".

Thanks. Another smooth update.

Good update on bspwm. LibreOffice Still 5.0.5-4 is ok. No problems with the new xf86-video-intel.
All is well on LXDE and LXQt.

Don;t we love splits. Banana split, Van Damme split, and now MSM split. Greatly appreciated, don;t need kde stuff.
You can't feel the love till it hurts a little. Go rolling, go bleeding-edge !

@philm and the other devs: Thank you very much for splitting MSM to make a KDE-dependency-free installation in Xfce possible :)
