1. Manjaro 0.8.5

It took us a good month to prepare Manjaro 0.8.5. We are happy now to present to you our latest version of Manjaro Linux featuring now a graphical installer. With this release we offer XFCE and Openbox as our desktop environments. You can install also your own desktop using our Net-Edition just including the basic packages and the Xorg-Stack so you can build your system from the ground up as you want it.

A common problem with every Linux Distribution is the installation for language translation packages. With our graphical tool Manjaro Settings Manager we want to make that as easy as possible. Therefore we created nice wizards which will guide you thru each step. We will notify you when a new language packages came available. Also you can change your system language and keyboard layouts with Manjaro Settings Mananger quite comfortable.

To make the keyboard layout setup as simple as possible we created kbctl, a cli-tool you can set your keyboard to american standard with for example followed cmd: 'kbctl -l us' - it sets the proper layout for X11 and your console, plus loads it asap.

A lot of work went into our graphical installer we forked from Linux Mint. Thanks flies out to Clement and his team. We tweaked it a little to fit for Archlinux based Distros. For now only installation on one harddrive is properly supported, but you can mount other other partitions by hand if you choose the manual option. I recommend to use our cli-installers for this matter which offers still all the features like efi-support and makes it possible to install Manjaro on your Macs.

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

  • Graphical installer introduced
  • Manjaro Settings Manager introduced
  • LXDM/Slim as display managers
  • Linux 3.8.5 as our kernel
  • Additional multimedia support, applications, and access to the AUR have been pre-installed

The Net-Edition doesn't have printing capabilities and 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 gst-plugins

With this release we re-introduced the support for Catalyst out-of-the-box.

2. Manjaro 0.8.5 Flavours

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

  • XFCE 4.10
  • Openbox 3.50
  • Net-Edition

Cinnamon, KDE, E17, 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.
