Manjaro 20.2.1 arrives with Pamac 10 and these other novelties

manjaro 20.2.1

As a Manjaro user, specifically in its version for USB (and ARM), I had been waiting for this news for days. On December 30th they released a stable update, which means they updated a lot of packages for existing users, so it was a matter of days before they told us about a new release. That moment has already arrived, and for a few moments now we can download manjaro 20.2.1, Nibia's first point update.

Right now, the launch is official, but only half. It is official because the project's Twitter account has already published it, but it is not 100% because they have not yet added the information or to your forum nor does it appear on the official website. For that reason, the list of news is not published yet, but we do know that it includes what is shown in the header image.

Manjaro 20.2.1 uses Linux 5.9

As I write this article I can't stop looking at the forum and the official website in case they update them and I can add more information. At the moment, we do know who uses Linux 5.9, although Linux 5.10.2 is already available from the application designed to manage the kernel. They have also updated Pamac to v10, with some changes that everyone did not like equally but with which the project has tried to order everything a little more.

On the other hand, the official versions of the project have arrived (or continue) with graphical environments Xfce 4.14, GNOME 3.38.2 and Plasma 5.20.2, although I think the latter will be updated to a newer version soon. Manjaro 20.2.1 also comes with many other updated packages, such as Firefox 84 or LibreOffice 7.0.4, as long as we use the "Fresh" channel version.

Manjaro 20.2.1 is now available from the following links: Xfce, GNOME y KDE. Soon they will publish more detailed information in their news wall and in your forum.
