Philip Müller has announced a new release of Manjaro Linux, an Arch-based distribution designed to be easy to install and use. The new release features a date-based version number, 15.09, along with a new graphical system installer, called Calamares. Manjaro Linux 15.09 also includes Firefox 41 and updated kernel packages. "I'm happy to announce Manjaro 15.09 (Bellatrix)! Since June we are working on this release. First thing you will notice, this release was not tagged 0.9.0 as we would have normal done. Well, we had a discussion with all developers and decided to go for date tags from now on. Also new is: we ship with Calamares as an alternative graphical installer. It is now stable enough to be used on productive systems. You can still use Thus. Also our terminal installer got some small improvements." Manjaro Linux 15.09 is available in three official favour's (Xfce, KDE and Net) along with several community spins.
