Linux News Today: Manjaro Linux GNOME 16.04 Community Edition Out Now with GNOME 3.20, More
Manjaro Linux GNOME maintainer Stefano Capitani today, April 20, 2016, announced the release and immediate availability for download of Manjaro Linux GNOME 16.04 Community Edition.
Today’s Manjaro Linux GNOME 16.04 release is to be considered a development operating system preparing users for what’s coming to the next major stable update, Manjaro Linux GNOME 16.06, and it comes with all the latest security patches and software updates from the upstream Arch Linux repositories.
“The new ISO of future Gnome 16.06 is out. It’s called 16.04-Dev because it has been released now and based on our unstable branch (if you want you can switch to the stable or testing branch of course) and minimal because its size is almost around 1GB,” said Stefano Capitani, Manjaro-GNOME maintainer.
Here’s what’s new in Manjaro Linux GNOME 16.04 Community Edition
According to Stefano Capitani, not much has changed in today’s Manjaro Linux GNOME 16.04 Community Edition release since the previous version of the operating system, with the exception of some the main desktop theme, which is now based on the Vertex Maia (all dark) theme and Maia Square icon theme.
Other than that, the software collection has been refined a little and it now includes the Mozilla Firefox web browser, GParted patition editor, ISOUSB LiveUSB creator, GnoMenu consolidated menu for GNOME, OpenWeather weather indicator, MediaPlayer indicator, as well as the Dash to Dock GNOME Shell extension.
Other than that, there are several small tweaks here and there, such as a removable drive menu. You can download the Manjaro Linux GNOME 16.04 Community Edition 32-bit and 64-bit Live ISO images right now via our website and take the distribution for a test drive. Again, please consider this a development version, not to be deployed on production machines.
