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It is also obvious that the menu on the left has disappeared and it has been replaced by drop-down panels from where we will choose what we want to find.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?
