Manjaro Linux 17.0 Is Released

Manjaro Linux 17.0 has been released, with a nice variety of desktops available. In addition to the official Xfce and KDE versions, the Community versions with Gnome, Cinnamon, LXQt and i3 desktops have also been released.
Manjaro considers Xfce to be their "flagship" distribution.
As is usual with a "rolling release" distribution such as Manjaro, the new ISO installation images are actually a roll-up of all the security updates, bug fixes, patches and other updates which have been made since the last release.

If you already have Manjaro installed it is not necessary to reinstall from scratch, you only have to make sure that you have all the latest updates installed. The latest batch of updates will also modify the release info files so that your system will identify itself as Manjaro 17.0 (Gellivara).

To summarize, I would just say that if you haven't tried Manjaro until now, this would be an excellent time to give it a spin. There are a lot of different desktops to choose from, ranging from the all-singing, all-dancing, bells-and-whistles galore (Gnome and KDE) down to the absolute minimalist shut-up-and-get-out-of-my-way (i3), and a number of interesting choices in the middle (Cinnamon, Xfce, LXQt).
