[![manjaro-obleg-089][1]][2][![manjaro-obevo-089][3]][4]We are happy to announce our first release candidates of Manjaro Openbox Editions.

You get **Openbox 3.5.2** now from two editions: **Legacy** and **Evolution**. Each variant targets different audiences. Legacy is designed for our geeks. You can build up everything. We ship a **bare system** with that edition, just our cli package manager added and some basic system tools. With Evolution we offer **common used applications** and **Turbulence** to change your wallpapers, choose your panel position, install additional packages and much more.

**Turbulence** started as a tool to customize various aspects of your operating system at first boot for the KDE desktop. Similar to Chakra's kapudan, written in QT and Python, Turbulence is completely unique to Manjaro. To make our openbox editions even more userfriendly, we decided to port Turbulence also to that desktop environment.

Some of it's features are:  

  * Sleak gray graphical layout
  * Provides information of Manjaro to new users
  * Can allow the user to easily select which Folders he wants in his home directory
  * Allows users to select which theme they want for Kwin (KDE)
  * Allows users to select which wallpaper they want (KDE/Openbox)
  * Allows users to chose where to place your tint2 panel (Openbox)
  * Can also allow people to open system settings after they've ran through everything else to set any last minute details

A very lean OpenBox with the ability to be configured however you want through an easy to use GUI.

_**Whats new**_

  * linux310 3.10.27
  * Updated Turbulence-Evolution 0.2.1
  * evodark & evolight wallpapers
