Manjaro 19.0 released (Gnome, KDE, XFCE, Architect)

Filed under
Linux

We are happy to publish another stable release of Manjaro Linux, named Kyria.

The Xfce edition remains our flagship offering and has received the attention it deserves. Only a few can claim to offer such a polished, integrated and leading-edge Xfce experience. With this release we ship Xfce 4.14 and have mostly focused on polishing the user experience with the desktop and window manager. Also we have switched to a new theme called Matcha. A new feature Display-Profiles allows you to store one or more profiles for your preferred display configuration. We also have implemented auto-application of profiles when new displays are connected.

Our KDE edition provides the powerful, mature and feature-rich Plasma 5.17 desktop environment with a unique look-and-feel, which we completely re-designed for this release. The full set of Breath2-themes includes light and dark versions, animated splash-screen, Konsole profiles, Yakuake skins and many more little details. We have rounded off text editor Kate with some additional color schemes and offer Plasma-Simplemenu as an alternative to the traditional Kickoff-Launcher. With a wide selection of latest KDE-Apps 19.12.2 and other applications Manjaro-KDE aims to be a versatile and elegant environment ready for all your everyday needs.

  • Arch-based Manjaro 19.0 'Kyria' Linux distro is here with GNOME, KDE, and Xfce

    If you are a Linux user, you are undoubtedly in heaven right now. Recently, there have been updates to some truly excellent distributions, such as MX Linux 19.1, Netrunner 20.01, elementary OS 5.1.2, and OpenMandriva Lx 4.1. While I suppose having to choose from so many distros can be seen as a negative for some, I say it's a damn good problem to have!

    Guess what? Things are getting a bit more crowded! Today, one of the most popular Linux distributions gets a new version. Yes, Manjaro Linux 19.0 is finally here! Named "Kyria," it can be had with your choice of three desktop environments -- Xfce 4.14, KDE Plasma 5.17, and GNOME 3.34. While Xfce is highlighted by the developers, the others two DEs are arguably superior.

Manjaro 19.0 is here with Linux 5.4 and improved UI

  • Manjaro 19.0 is here with Linux 5.4 and improved UI

    Most probably, the most important highlight of this release has to be that Manjaro has upgraded to Linux Kernel 5.4 LTS. However, it seems clear that the system’s user interface has been the focal point of this release.

    With this update, the brains behind the product have made it clear that its flagship edition, Xfce of Manjaro, reigns supreme over all the other versions. Accordingly, Kyria comes with the latest version of the Xfce desktop environment in v4.14. However, this isn’t the only change implemented when it comes to the system’s UI, as users should also notice an improved desktop and window manager.

    Apart from that, you’ll also find a new default theme dubbed Matcha when you update to Manjaro 19.0. Plus, the developers have also worked on a new feature called Display Profiles through which users will be able to save their preferred display settings. Moreover, upon connecting a new display, the profiles will be automatically applied to it.

    However, if you want to go for the KDE edition of Manjaro, you’re going to be finding Plasma 5.17 desktop environment that has been specially modified, keeping in mind this Manjaro update. Yakuake skins, Konsole profiles, animated splash-screen, and light/dark versions will also be a part of the Breath2-themes. Moreover, there’s also going to be KDE Apps 19.12.2 accompanying this edition.

  • Temporary Contact Number based Contact Tracing

    I have already talked here before about privacy preserving contact tracing to fight Covid-19 but I figured I give an update to this. I have spent the last week now investigating different approaches to this and my view has changed quite a bit. I strongly believe that contact tracing through phone apps is one of our best chances to return to normal and without losing our civil liberties. If you want to understand why, have a look at previous post about this topic. [...] If your local government is planning on implementing a covid tracing app it might be worth directing them towards Co-Epi. It already has an implementation of many of the same ideas in their GitHub repository. If they do want a centralized approach the Singaporean government Open Sourced their application under GPL3 under the name BlueTrace. It avoids largely unnecessary cloud infrastructure from what I can tell.
