1. Manjaro 0.8.4

More features, more refinements, and more user-friendliness characterises the release of Manjaro 0.8.4.

While the most immediately noticable difference will likely be the introduction of a new look developed especially for the Manjaro desktop environments, the most significant development will be found in the official introduction of <strong>Pamac</strong>, a user-friendly Pacman interface developed in-house by the Manjaro Team.

Replacing the Kalu, Pacman-GUI, and Package Browser applications, Pamac makes it faster and easier than ever before to update the system, search for, and install software...all of which can now be undertaken at the same time in only a single application! Furthermore, as well as possessing an intuitive, simple interface, Pamac will also automatically check for updates and new software packages without even having to click a button. It really could not be any easier!

In respect to the official flavours, a more detailed list of the most significant general changes made are as follows:

  • New-look desktop environments
  • Pamac replaces Kalu, Pacman-Gui and Package Browser
  • User-friendly LXDM configuration application - developed by the Manjaro Team - provided to easily customise the login screen and to even login automatically
  • Graphical boot screen introduced for installation media
  • Default kernel has been upgraded to 3.7 from 3.4 (with improved flash support)
  • Special PDF quick-guides have been provided for each official desktop environment
  • Additional multimedia support, applications, and access to the AUR have been pre-installed

The Net-Edition doesn't have printing capabilities, all multimedia codecs, or pulseaudio support pre-installed. These can be installed and enabled with the following commands if required:

  • sudo pacman -Sy manjaro-printer && sudo systemctl enable cups.service
  • sudo pacman -Sy manjaro-pulse
  • sudo pacman -Sy gstreamer0.10-plugins

2. Manjaro 0.8.4 Flavours

Both 32 and 64 bit versions of Manjaro are available in the following flavours (i.e. with the following desktop environments pre-installed):

The full range of available flavours for this release are:

  • Cinnamon 1.6
  • Openbox 3.50
  • XFCE 4.10

E17, KDE, LXDE and MATE can be installed from our Community Editions released when ready.

Razor-QT and other window-manager are also available for installation from the Official Manjaro repositories. A minimalist Net-Edition will be also available without a pre-installed display manager, desktop environment, or software applications.
