Manjaro Update 2016-01-18 (stable) is here to update most of the core components and applications to their latest versions. Among these, we can mention the recently released KDE Applications 15.12.1 software suite and KDE Frameworks 5.18.0, but also the Deepin 12.15 packages, and updates to the Mesa, SQLite, Python and Haskell ones.
“We are happy to announce our fourth update for Manjaro 15.12 (Capella),” said Philip Müller on behalf of the Manjaro Development Team. “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 branch almost smoothly.”
