This news will undoubtedly appeal to all users who remain loyal to this Linux distribution, which is by no means the friendliest and simplest, but its simplicity, flexibility and potential make ease go into the background. However, the project Wiki makes things much easier for all those who do not have so much experience and want to enter the Arch world.

The new version of Arch Linux 2016 comes with notable improvements, among them the incorporation of the new kernel Linux 4.8.6, a newer version of the kernel that powers the distro. In addition to the kernel, the rest of the pre-installed packages that are incorporated into the operating system ISO have also been updated to their latest versions until the stable releases that were available in October. Without a doubt you can update your Arch or if you have not tried it yet you can download the image and begin to know the benefits of Arch.

Of course, other improvements have been included beyond the updates of the packages and the kernel, improving some flaws and adding some new features as is usual in projects. Therefore, they leave us a good image to be able to install both on our server and on our personal equipment, the flexibility of this system that comes almost "naked" is extreme and can be adapted to everything. The ISO images can be found both in version of 64 as 32 bit depending on the equipment you use.

You can download the image ISO just under 800MB in size by accessing the download area of the project website, therefore it is not as heavy as that of other distributions, yes, you will need extra work to leave it to your liking. On this website you will find everything you need, different servers, security sums to verify the ISO once you download it, documentation, etc. And for more help you can go to this link of your ArchWiki.
