Hi community,

welcome to another **stable update** of Manjaro. Mostly we worked the past days on our **toolchain**. Please [read our **Troubleshooting** guide][1] for more details.

Other changes are:

  * updating Pamac, which fixes an issue unable to close a mirrorlist generation and shows now a progressbar during updates checking
  * more JADE updates
  * updated Kernels
  * added BFQ scheduler to kernel series v4.16 and v4.17
  * most of our kernels got updated and include [bluetooth][2] and [wifi][3] fixes
  * latest PHP
  * added Mesa [v18.0.2][4]
  * added Plasma [v5.12.5][5]
  * updated qemu to [v2.12.0][6]
  * [adjustments][7] to our **gnome-settings**
  * updated Nvidia driver to [v396.24][8]. Users of Fermi cards should read our [troubleshooting guide][1], as [support for their cards got dropped][9] by this driver!
  * added Nvidia 390xx legacy drivers
  * added needed changes for nvidia-390xx to mhwd
  * latest Firefox Development Edition is now at v61-beta2
  * updates to **Vertex** theme
  * updates to [MS-Office-Online launcher][10]
  * trizen as AUR helper added
  * fixes to Compiz
  * some more Cinnamon updates
  * users of Hyper may need to "downgrade" to the stable version, as we removed the epoch
  * usual upstream updates

Our effort and all the needed information about the new security risk can be found [here][11].

So please report back and give us feedback for given changes made to our repositories. Users of our 32-bit Distro should read [this][12].

kind regards
