Manjaro XFCE 0.9.0-pre2 edition released

Another week, another preview of our next stable release 0.9.0. Hopefully we will release Manjaro 0.9.0 by end of February. Next week you can use 0.8.12 as your install media until we have ironed out all issues you may find in this release. This build feels more feature complete and reflects almost the look and feel we will ship with our final release when ready. So what changed?

  • simplify displaymanager configuration
  • [buildiso] add switch to remove iso before writing iso
  • [livecd] fix pulse-audio-ctl call
  • [livecd] workaround for issue #36
  • [mkchroot] proper default locales
  • [mkchroot/mkiso] create locale within root-image
