The Arch based Manjaro is released in version 0.8.5 and since it is a rolling release it is only a matter of enjoying the new features for those who have installed it.
For those who have not; Manjaro now comes with a graphical installer (forked from Linux Mint) that should make the installation even easier:
- Graphical installer introduced
Manjaro Settings Manager introduced
LXDM/Slim as display manager
Linux 3.8.5 as our kernel
Proprietary driver support for AMD and Nvidia graphic cards
Additional multimedia support, applications, and access to the AUR have been pre-installed
The settings manager is nothing like Mandrivas MCC but it is possible to set up Manjaro without fiddling in the CLI to much. I do not think it comes pre-installed so you may have to install it via the package manager - just search for "settings manager".
This is an interesting project that keeps getting better....
