Manjaro Linux 24's third maintenance release, called "Wynsdey" and introduced earlier today, features Plasma 6 and version 6.9 of the Linux kernel. Each of the Manjaro editions available comes with updated desktops and visual traits, as well as under-the-hood fixes and optimizations.

Based on the Arch Linux operating system, Manjaro focuses on accessibility and aims to make the transition from Windows as smooth as possible for all new users. The initial release is dated July 10, 2011, and the latest major update arrived in mid-May 2024, when Manjaro 24.0 Wynsdey launched with Plasma 6 and the Linux kernel labeled 6.9. Its predecessor, labeled 23.1.0 and nicknamed "Vulcan," arrived at the end of 2023 and uses the 6.6 LTS kernel. This week, Wynsdey received its third maintenance update.

Unsurprisingly, there's not much changed on the surface with this minor update. All six existing editions should get under-the-hood updates, tweaks, and fixes. These editions are Plasma, Xfce, Gnome, Cinnamon, i3, and Sway. Those who want to take a closer look at the package updates can do so by checking out this page. The highlights worth being mentioned include Wine 9.11, Systemd 256.1, new firmware added to the kernel (no details revealed), Qemu 9.0.1, LibreOffice 24.2.4, Firefox 127.0.1, initial updates to Cinnamon 6.2, and more.

In addition to the X86_64 builds for mainstream laptops and desktops, it must be highlighted that Manjaro is also available for ARM devices, including embedded ones, but also for smartphones, tablets, and laptops. Regardless of the edition chosen, most users of this distro might need to have a guide like Atanas Georgiev Rusev's Manjaro Linux User Guide: Gain proficiency in Linux through one of its best user-friendly Arch-based distributions at hand. This comprehensive guide with almost 500 pages is available in Kindle format, priced at $35.99, and the paperback version goes for $43.13.
