[![system_software_update][1]][1]Hi community,

welcome to another **stable update** of Manjaro. Not only we have a fresh **Plasma** for you to have fun with, we also extended our kernels with **v4.16** series. This brings new hardware support and a lot of new features. Also we worked on our graphical stack and updated some of our tools. For all newcomers to Manjaro, please install Manjaro from our fresh [v17.1.6 install ISOs][2].

Here are the changes in more details:

  * We upgraded Plasma to [v5.12.2][3]
  * We upgraded QT to [v5.10.1][4]
  * We added Kernel v4.16 series
  * We upgraded **mhwd** to v0.6.2 and [simplified opensource driver installation][5] for **nouveau** and **amdgpu**
  * We updated **Mesa** and **LibDRM**
  * We addressed the issue with nvidiafb and **linux415+** series
  * We updated **Systemd**
  * We added regular upstream updates like **Haskell** and **Python**

Our effort and all the needed information about the new security risk can be found [here][6].

Remember,** we only continue with our 64bit architecture from now on**. Please adopt to [another distribution][7], if needed on 32bit supported systems, as you may not get any updates on that architecture from us.

Please report back and give us feedback for given changes made to our repositories.

kind regards
