[manjaro-general] Manjaro Update 2015-09-23 (stable)

I’m happy to announce another review cycle for Manjaro 15.09.

It is time for our **fourth release candidate** of Manjaro 15.09. Why another RC? Well, we have to test the new **KDE Framework 5.14** and **KDE Apps 15.08.1** for our final release first. 

Most of our kernels got updated: **3.10.89**, **3.14.53**, **4.1.8**, **4.2.1**, **4.3-rc2**. We adopted systemd changes and adjusted openrc to match those changes. With **manjaro-tools 0.9.13-rc1** we added new features and optimized our live-cd boot speed. Regular security fixes for flashplugin and Chromium are provided by this update. Dbus and Systemd (now at 226) got optimized. Also we ship the usual Archlinux upstream fixes (Tue Sep 22 18:28:03 CEST 2015).

The packages **systemd 226-1** plus **dbus 1.10.0-3** now launch **dbus-daemon** once per user. All sessions of a user will share the same D-Bus “session” **bus**. The **pam_systemd** module ensures that the right **DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS** is set at login.

This also permits **dbus-daemon** to defer to systemd for activation instead of spawning server processes itself. However, currently this is not commonly used for session services (as opposed to system services). **kdbus** will only support this model, so this is also an opportunity to iron out some bugs and make a future transition to kernel buses easier. Please let us know of any issues.

It is always good to check for updated packages, even we don’t notify you about them. As usual people using our testing branch will help us to get snaps over to our stable branch almost smoothly. For notifications on daily bases please take a look at our [mailing list][1].

Please give us feedback and report any findings with this update.

Kind regards, Philip Müller and the Manjaro Development Team
