Pamac 10.0 out now and, well, now it looks more like a software hub

Pamac 10.0 in Manjaro

After being announced less than two weeks ago, I personally thought it would take longer to be available. But Pamac 10.0 has already arrived in Manjaro to manage packages. Speaking of packages, those necessary to update to the new version of Pamac have arrived a few hours ago and, after installation, what we will see will be more similar to what we see in other stores, such as GNOME Software, or at least in part.

This is something that we had already seen on video earlier this month, but now we can test it officially and using the stable version. Although Pamac is a very functional graphical tool to manage packages, the truth is that it was very far from other software centers such as Discover and, although I think that KDE's proposal is still better in terms of design, Pamac 10.0 is a very step forward. important.

Pamac 10.0 reaches its stable version

Details on how the new works Manjaro software store You have them in the following video that we also published at the time.

Having already tried it, of the functions that were advanced to us, I would highlight the Software Mode, which is accessed from the three dots (options) and by checking the box so that only important software appears and skips other packages such as add-ons. The new details section is also striking, that is, when we click on a package to see what it contains or does. The new look for these details looks a lot like GNOME Software's, which doesn't mean it's a bad thing.

It is also obvious that the menu on the left has disappeared and it has been replaced by drop-down panels from where we will choose what we want to find. At this point, it is worth mentioning that, at least right now and in (my) Xfce, there are still parts to be translated, such as "Search by" which appears as "Browse by" and "View" instead of "View ».

But, even with things that could be improved, Pamac 10.0 is here and I like it better. How are you?

    The truth at first I thought it was a bad installation of manjaro XFCE minimal that I had done (using the Manjaro architect installer), for another reason, I reinstalled it again and the previous version appeared which was much more pleasant to search for applications. The negative it has:
    1- when it is opened it does not show any application in the explorer tab.
    2- In the browser By options you have to search one by one until you find what you are looking for, they should have left an option to "show all"
    3- the update tab shows the last refresh that was done (manually) and when it is opened it does not do an update check like the previous version, besides that the visual seems to be from the 80s.
    4- They removed the Software Update launcher from the application menu (with which you opened pamac directly).
    I mean, visually for me they ruined it

      Hello Gabriel. If I have not misunderstood, the first two points are not so. The most popular applications do appear to me as soon as I launch it and, when searching, it is «view» in «all». The fourth point, I look for "Add" and it remains, I do not know what is failing you.

      In the third I do agree and I think they should fix it.

      A greeting.

        Hello Pablinux, pamac has just been updated to version 10.0.2-1 and now everything has returned to normal (before I could not even see the icons of the applications that offered for example: the red panda of firefox) and with respect To the launcher that I mentioned, in manjaro (at least in the XFCE version) there were 2 launchers, one was "Add / remove software" (use the pamac-manager% U command) and the other was "Software Update" ( use the command pamac-manager –updates), in the previous update this last launcher had disappeared (now I don't know if they put it back, because the one I have I took from a backup that I made after installing manjaro)
