Manjaro Update 2015-09-20 (stable)

I’m happy to announce another review cycle for Manjaro 15.09.

It is time for our third release candidate of Manjaro 15.09. Only small adjustments were made. Most of our kernels got updated: 3.10.88, 3.12.48, 3.14.52, 4.1.7. We also added kernel 4.3-rc1 for early testing. However not all extramodules built for that kernel series yet. Octopi 0.7.2 got some needed fixes to improve its usablility.

Calamares is now at 1.1.3, which will be the last point-release of that series and we updated manjaro-tools to reflect our latest bugfixes and changes regarding EFI support. Catalyst is now at 15.201.1151, which brings lot of fixes for games, VirtualBox got bumped to 5.0.4 and we have a lot of packages rebuilt against ncurses 6.0. Also we ship the usual Archlinux upstream fixes (Sun Sep 20 10:18:20 CEST 2015).

It is always good to check for updated packages, even we don’t notify you about them. As usual people using our testing branch will help us to get snaps over to our stable branch almost smoothly. For notifications on daily bases please take a look at our mailing list.

Please give us feedback and report any findings with this update.

Kind regards, Philip Müller and the Manjaro Development Team
