Hello community,

I am happy to announce another Stable Update. Mostly we have XFCE, Kernels and Haskell updates with this one.

Addition of FreeOffice

On Manjaro 18.1-rc6 ISOs we ship FreeOffice by default. This is possible since we partnered up with Softmaker. Enjoy the best compability to MS Office!
If you like more a spartan version shipping only the desktop environment and systemd tools, please choose our Minimal-ISOs. On the final release we plan to make the office suite selectable during installation. Learn more about FreeOffice here.

Manjaro Hardware

With the new Premium BIOS, you have the opportunity to make various profiles for chipset-specific settings and components in order to be able to operate the device optimally depending on the application on Tuxedo hardware. Find out more here and stay tuned for the announcement of our new Manjaro Laptop we will launch together.

Support of Snap packages (only on full ISOs)

Some might noticed that since the #snapcraftsummit a lot of package changes went into Manjaro and our available RCs. XFCE, Gnome and KDE edition will come with fpakman, so managing snaps and flatpaks is easy. To learn more go here.

This way everybody can easily access the snap store by a click and don’t has to hassle to get snaps enabled. This enables us to ship even more proprietary software, which we couldn’t before. For example check out on how you may install Spotify on Manjaro.
