Hi community,

this is the current status with our Manjaro 0.8.9 development so far. We 
managed to stabilize our graphical installer and added new and needed 
features to it. Pamac supports now AUR and Manjaro Settings Manager can 
handle now mhwd requests. We are currently talking about which kernel we 
will use in our next stable release. So stay tuned what will come next.
