manjaro 2021-12-10

Updates are taking a while to arrive, but it's never too late if the bliss is good. The previous one was launched on November 19, and this one came a month after the one that preceded it. A few moments ago has been announced the launch of manjaro 2021-12-10, an update that GNOME and KDE users will take advantage of more. Of these two, something common, the KDE edition has received the greatest number of changes, since they have added the latest version of Plasma that was released days ago.

A longer than usual changelog has been highlighted on the project forum, mentioning that some GNOME applications have gone up to version 41.2. Among the rest of the packages, the penultimate version of LibreOffice stands out, one that has not yet corrected a serious security breach, and the latest version of the software to run Windows apps on other operating systems, WINE 6.23.

    Manjaro is one of those few GNU / Linux distributions highly recommended for any user.
    It has never been broken (at least to me). : ')
    Because it is not a "rolling release to the bone", I think it is something in between, between a "Point Release" and a "Rolling" like our beloved Arch.

    Be careful with this update, if you use Nvdia, it breaks during installation and several applications stop working due to the icu
