Efficiency. Stability. Innovation. Accessibility. These are the defining features of the Manjaro Philosophy. These are also the defining features of the release of Manjaro 0.8.3, which has been optimised and enhanced significantly. Put simply, this release is leaner, faster, lighter, and more robust than ever before.
The core system has been upgraded to boost performance and responsiveness, resulting in even faster startup, shutdown, and operational speeds. The official Manjaro repositories have been transformed with an abundance of updated and brand new packages. Many software packages themselves have been exclusively patched by the Manjaro Team for stability.
Accessibility has also been enhanced. New user-friendly desktop tools have been added to easily manage user accounts and to configure the system. A full and comprehensive 66-page user guide has been produced. Even the installation files have been streamlined for smaller and faster downloads.
The full range of available flavours for this release are:
XFCE 4.10 KDE 4.9.4 Cinnamon 1.6.7 Mate 1.4.2 Openbox Net-Edition (no DE pre-installed)
