[![system_software_update][1]][2]I'm happy to present our sixth Update-Pack for Manjaro 0.8.10!

Some might already noticed that Archlinux moved on to the xorg-server 1.16 series. Manjaro on the other hand will hold back and **keep xorg115 a little longer**. We noticed some bad regressions with the new xorg version, so to be stable we use our own xorg-stack from now on. We might merge back with Arch when we think it is stable enough to use again.

Beside this decision **we updated our kernels** once more and fixed samba for security reasons. The coding language gambas3 got another great point-release. With Libreoffice-fresh you can install the latest **LibreOffice 4.3.0** to your Manjaro box. We still recommend to keep the current version instead. **Cinnamon** got updated to **2.2.14**, which fixes some issues we had. **KDE Framework** got pushed to **5.1** which offers more stability and functionality.

Other than that, we have regular upstream updates and rebuilds by Archlinux.

Please report any issues you may find.

kind regards
