The Manjaro development team has announced the general availability of a new update pack for the Manjaro Linux 15.12 (Capella) operating system, urging users to update as soon as possible.
As usual with any new Manjaro 15.12 Update Pack, users get the latest software versions, and this time is no different. The Manjaro update released on April 15, 2016, brings the latest KDE Plasma 5.6.2 and Cinnamon 2.8.8 desktop environments, ALSA 1.1.1 sound server, Python2, and the open-source AMDGPU 1.1.0 (xf86-video-amdgpu) graphics driver for AMD Radeon GPUs.
The update pack also introduces new kernel versions for the Manjaro Linux 15.12 (Capella) operating system, among which we can mention Linux 3.10.101 LTS, Linux 3.12.57 LTS, Linux 184.108.40.206, Linux 3.14.65 LTS, Linux 220.127.116.11, Linux 3.18.30 LTS, Linux 18.104.22.168, Linux 4.1.21 LTS, Linux 22.214.171.124, Linux 4.4.6 LTS, Linux 4.5, and Linux 4.6 Release Candidate 2.
Also new in the latest update pack for Manjaro Linux 15.12 (Capella) is a preview version of the soon-to-be-redesigned Pamac graphical package manager. This should allow user to double-click on a package’s name to view extra info, see a dependency’s details by clicking on a dependency in the dependencies view, as well as browse the packages during transactions.
