Manjaro Ellada Released

After a little over two months of development, the Manjaro team released the ‘Ellada’ edition of Manjaro.

Manjaro developers stated they focused on polishing the user experience on the desktop and window manager, and on updating some components to take advantage of newly available technologies such as switching to a new Vertex-Maia theme.

Manjaro Linux is a fast, user-friendly, desktop-oriented operating system based on Arch Linux. Key features include intuitive installation process, automatic hardware detection, stable rolling-release model, ability to install multiple kernels, special Bash scripts for managing graphics drivers and extensive desktop configurability.

Overall changes

Manjaro will now have Plasma 5.7.3, Firefox 48.0, Nvidia 367.44, LibreOffice 5.1.5, Systemd 231, Octopi 0.8.3 and Pamac 4.1.3 added to these install medias. Calamares 2.4 has following highlights:

  • added support for reusing an existing /home partition if detected in the /etc/fstab file of an already installed operating system
  • new netinstall module which offers a choice of packages to install
  • rewritten large portions of the locale module, with new locale and timezone autodetection functionality and smarter management of locale.conf values
  • added support for an already mounted loop filesystem as source for the unpackfs operation
  • improved handling of partition colors in the partitioning interfacewhen operating on logical partitions
  • fixed a user name validation issue which could in some specific situations cause a failed installation
  • improved defaults in several configuration files
  • improved bootloader deployment on EFI systems with an existing EFI system partition
  • countless other bug fixes
