Philip Müller has announced the launch of Manjaro Linux 0.8.13. Manjaro is an Arch-based distribution with friendly text and graphical system installers and the project offers many desktop utilities out of the box. “After four months of development we are happy to present to you Manjaro 0.8.13. This time we ship Xfce 4.12 tweaked and patched to have the best Xfce experience possible, Plasma 5.3.1, KDE Frameworks 5.10.0 and latest KDE Apps 15.04.1!” The announcement goes on to list specific upgrades to the project’s Xfce and KDE editions. New improvements can also be found in the distribution’s system installer: “We worked also hard to improve our graphical installer Thus and our system tools to make the installation and usage of Manjaro as easy and smooth as possible. With this install media we now support Manjaro to be installed on MMC/SD-Cards as well. This will allow some of you to install our distribution to smaller devices without hard drives. Also this install media fixes the issue we had with RAID0 and ext4.” Further information on this release can be found in the project’s release announcement.
The NET edition of Manjaro provides a base installation without a pre-installed display manager, desktop environment, or any desktop software applications. It allows you to build your own version of Manjaro from the ground up.
Cinnamon, Enlightenment, Fluxbox, Gnome, i3, LXDE, LXQT, MATE, Netbook, Openbox and PekWM can be installed from our Community Editions released when ready.
Razor-QT and other window-managers are also available for installation from the Official Manjaro repositories.
