Yes, now I do. Thank you for providing actual information. This is very interesting, as, in reading down the list of applications that make use of it, I note that I have several installed and running.
That begs the question of why my very vanilla Arch+ KDE was not impacted/affected in any way. It has been totally business-as-usual. There could be several reasons:
- I do not have any "appmenu" packages installed. And I note the majority of them are AUR packages. I found only one in the actual Arch repos. Arch Linux - Package Search
- I may have updated subsequent to patching of anything impacted that I have installed.
So it still appears that Arch is a stable base. The update to icu broke AUR packages, not Arch ones. And that will happen from time to time. But breakage has been so rare for me running Arch--I mean broken Arch packages, not something easily pinned or rolled-back--that I remember only one that impacted me much. Networkmanager. Frigging networkmanager. But that was half-expected, as it had always been a fitfull application in Debian Testing, too.
As I said, the majority of appmenu packages are in the AUR: AUR (en) - Search Criteria: appmenu
So I'm sticking by Arch. And I still say that Garuda's developers would not and did not use an inferior, unstable package base for their distribution. Arch is as stable as any rolling-release out there. To call Arch anything else, is to insult Garuda's developers.
