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. Manjaro Linux offers Xfce as the core desktop options, as well as KDE, GNOME and a minimalist Net edition for more advanced users. Community-supported desktop flavours are also available.
Philip Müller has announced the release of Manjaro Linux 21.0, a significant update of the project’s desktop-oriented, rolling-release distribution featuring the GNOME, KDE and Xfce desktops. This release updates the desktops to GNOME 3.38, KDE 2.21 and Xfce 4.16: “With our Xfce edition, we now have Xfce 4.16. The window manager received lots of updates and improvements again in the area of compositing and GLX. Support for fractional scaling was added to the display dialog, along with highlighting the preferred mode of a display with an asterisk and adding aspect ratios next to resolutions. The settings manager has improved search and filter capabilities. Thunar file manager received a boatload of fixes and quite a few notable features, including pause for copy/move operations, support for queued file transfer, remembering view settings per directory and support for transparency in GTK themes. Linux kernel 5.10 LTS is used for this release.” Read the rest of the release announcement for further information.
