KDE 4.13.2 Is Now Available In Manjaro 0.8.10

Manjaro 0.8.10 has received its Update-Pack 1, getting regular kernel updates and latest upstream packages. This update adds some new Gnome3 packages, latest linux kernels, drivers and many updated applications needed for performing your tasks.

According to the official announcement available in the Manjaro blog, KF5 got updated to 4.100 version, the latest mesa 10.2.1 with a better working mhwd is included and the following kernels are supported:

  • Linux34 3.4.92
  • Linux38
  • Linux310 3.10.43
  • Linux311
  • Linux312 3.12.22
  • Linux313
  • Linux314 3.14.7

Many users have been waiting for the latest KDE version, so I am very sure this update will make them happy, because KDE 4.13.2 just came out. In order to get the Plasma 5 desktop fully working you have to add kde-unstable from Archlinux.

Unfortunately developers are still struggling with the systemd v214, so some packages are hold back to be be merged with stable/testing in order to make sure that they won’t break your systems.

Manjaro 0.8.10 has been released a few weeks ago featuring many ew features, updated translations, lots of fixes and the latest software packages such as LibreOffice 4.2.4. This version of Manjaro includes look-and-feel improvements, a modern graphical bootsplash and a new look for the Welcome screen.

Manjaro is a very user-friendly linux distribution which is based on the Arch linux operating system. It is available in both 32 and 64 bit versions. Unlike Ubuntu, Manjaro uses a Rolling Release development model which means that the same core system is not replaced but continually updated and upgraded.
