Manjaro Linux 24.0 Released

In recent news, the release of the distribution Manjaro Linux 24.0 took place. This distribution is built on the basis of Arch Linux and is oriented towards beginner users. One notable aspect of this distribution is the presence of a simplified and user-friendly installation process, which supports the automatic detection of hardware and installation of necessary drivers. Manjaro offers Live editions with KDE, Gnome, and XFCE desktop environments for X86_64 architecture and various ARM-based boards. Additionally, the community has developed assemblies with Budgie, Cinnamon, Deepin, LXDE, LXQT, MATE, and i3.

To manage repositories in Manjaro, the distribution uses its own Boxit tools designed in the GIT image. The distribution follows a rolling release model with continuous updates but ensures new versions undergo a stabilization stage. Users can also utilize the AUR (Arch User Repository) for additional support. Manjaro is equipped with a graphical installer and interface for system configuration.

Key features of the Manjaro Linux 24.0 release include:

  • Editors based on GNOME have been updated ahead of the GNOME 46 release. This update includes the addition of a global search function, improved performance of the file manager and terminal emulators, increased experimental support for the VRR mechanism, enhanced output quality with fractional scaling, updated configurator, and improved notification system. The GTK now includes a new drawing engine based on the VULKAN API.
  • KDE-based editors have transitioned to using the KDE 6 platform based on QT 6 and Wayland Protocol. KDE applications have been updated to KDE Gear 24.02.
  • XFCE-based editors are delivered with the XFCE 4.18 version.
  • The package manager Pamac has been updated to the new release of the Libalpm 6.1 library, offering basic package management capabilities similar to Pacman. Support for loading available agents for Libalpm has been added, along with improved assembly script loading from AUR and the Manjaro binary package repository.
  • The Linux kernel has been updated to version 6.9, with additional packages available for kernel releases 6.1 and 6.6.
