Manjaro 20.2 arrives with new versions of Plasma, Cinnamon and Linux 5.9

manjaro 20.2

As a Manjaro user on my Raspberry Pi 4 and on your USB version, This is not the news that would make me more excited about this operating system, but today there has been a new launch, and that is always important. A few minutes ago, the company made official the landing of Manjaro 20.2 Nibia, and at the time of this writing everything is so recent that they have not even published a release note with the most outstanding news.

They have announced the launch on Twitter, where they remind us that the code name is Nibia and little else, like that offer minimal installation ISOs with Linux 5.4, the latest LTS version of the Linux kernel. It stands out or is obvious that the version of Pamac that it includes, that is, the graphical tool to install software that should not be confused with pacman, remains the same as 9.5.12 v20.1.2 of the operating system.

Manjaro 20.2 continues with Pamac 9.5.12

We are pleased to announce the launch of Manjaro 20.2 we call #Nibia. We also offer minimum ISOs with Kernel 5.4 LTS which we add to the latest stable version of the kernel. Get us now.

And as I was writing this article, they have already published the most prominent changes, although right now they only appear in the forum. And they don't mention many changes, beyond the list of kernels they include, with the most up-to-date stable version of Linux 5.9.11, that the KDE version now uses Plasma 5.20.4 released this Tuesday, the cinnamon version uses Cinnamon 4.8 and they have included the usual Haskell and Uptream updates.

The new images, which we remember are only for new installationsAre here! the GNOME version, in this link the KDE version and in this other the Xfce version. For existing users, the new packages are already available in Pamac or we can update the operating system with the command «sudo pacman -Syu». I, for my part, to continue waiting for the happy news that they have launched the kde-usb version, to dream that it does not remain.

    Sorry, how stable is Manjaro, because it looks very good. But a long time ago I used Arch linux, and I had a very bad experience updating k from 4 to 5, so I stopped using it.
    Now I use Fedora, it is good, it has a few small bugs, but usable.

      I have read everything, and I myself considered installing Manjaro on my main computer months ago. I did not do it because of the comments that said that Rolling Release sometimes plays tricks, and because I myself spent days without being able to enter a website in Manjaro (KDE and Xfce) and I do not know what happened, but I am using it on a USB and I have had no more problems. The only thing is that the USB version is Xfce. I am using KDE on the Raspberry and I have not noticed anything wrong either, but on the motherboard they go a little slower with the updates.

      From my experience, I am happy, but I would not recommend it because I know that there are people who complain. Maybe you install it, it suits you perfectly and you don't want anything else, but what happened to you in the past could happen to you again.

      A greeting.

      I have been using Manjaro for almost 3 years on my laptop for daily use and the truth is that I have no complaints, especially in terms of stability and updates. Keep in mind that although Manjaro is practically Arch, it has its own repositories, so it is like another layer of security when updating, since the update arrives first to Arch and if everything goes well then it arrives at Manjaro. Let's say you're not as "on the cutting edge" of updates as you are in Arch.
