Manjaro 24.0 released with KDE Plasma 6, GNOME 46, Linux kernel 6.9

By - | Views: 41,351

Manjaro 24.0, based on Arch Linux, has been released pulling in a whole lot of upgrades across every part of the system. Despite a good few screw-ups in the past, Manjaro is actually a pretty reasonable choice for those of you who want a very up to date system with an easy install. It's even the Linux distribution Valve picked in their Developing for Steam Deck without a Dev-Kit guide.

Manjaro 24.0 Wynsdey brings with it GNOME 46.1, KDE Plasma 6.0.4 (with KDE Gear 24.02.02), Linux kernel 6.9 for the latest hardware support and Xfce 4.18. You also get Mesa 24.06, NVIDIA 550.78 and numerous updates to other software.

See their release announcement, along with some changes on their forum. Download from the Manjaro website.

Going by Valve's own survey and ours, Manjaro remains one of the more popular Linux distributions on the desktop. Have you used it recently, or are you using it now? Let me know in the comments how you're getting on with it.

At some point this year we're also going to see the Manjaro Gaming Edition which will come pre-installed on the Orange Pi Neo Linux gaming handheld.

Quoting: Purple Library Guy
Quoting: 14I don't think I had any unexpected issues with the multiple Arch machines I maintain.
Just expected issues?

i updated kubuntu and manjaro today
both went smoothly

expected issues... manjaro has new icons, a floating taskbar, etc due to KDE6
takes time to fix that.
