Manjaro Linux 18.1.0 ‘Juhraya’ officially released, here are new features

Manjaro 18.1.0 'Juhraya' was in development for six months, with an early controversy of whether the Manjaro team would replace FOSS office suite LibreOffice in favor of FreeOfficeX, which is proprietary.

Just a week after Manjaro announced that they would soon be a company, they officially released their latest distro, Manjaro 18.1.0 ‘Juhraya,’ to the delight of Linux enthusiasts worldwide.

Manjaro 18.1.0 ‘Juhraya’ was in development for six months, with an early controversy of whether the Manjaro team would replace FOSS office suite LibreOffice in favor of FreeOfficeX, which is proprietary.

After much feedback from the Manjaro community, the Manjaro developers dropped the plan, or in other words made both the communities happy. With Juhraya, Manjaro users can choose between the two (or choose no Office Suite at all).

Many Manjaro users were eagerly awaiting the release of Manjaro 18.0.1 ‘Juhraya’ because it includes their new software store, bauh (formerly known as fpakman).

Bauh is a graphical package manager (GPM) that comes with integrated support for both Flatpak and Snaps. Also, Manjaro still supports Arch AUR. This means that Manjaro users now have three choices of application installation in the GUI.

Manjaro 18.0.1 ‘Juhraya’ still comes in all three of Manjaro’s desktop editions, Xfce, KDE, and GNOME. All three have new features “designed to bring the desktop and operating system into perfect harmony.”

Some of these features include new buttons in the GNOME version (3.32), the latest KDE notification system (Plasma 5.16) and the new ‘Matcha’ theme of Manjaro’s Xfce Edition.

If you want to take a look at the announcement, head over to Manjaro forums. Those who want to go straight to download Juharaya can do that too by going to official download site. As usual, it’s available in Xfce, KDE, and GNOME editions.

Manjaro 18.1.0’s codename, Juhraya, is from the Star Trek saga.  In Star Trek, Juhraya is a Federation colony that falls under Cardassian jurisdiction according to the Federation Cardassian treaty signed in 2370. Strong opposition within the colony arose, with many colonists fighting to keep their homes.
