Looks like a lot of hard-won experience went into this one! Congrats, guys - and looking good...

I guess I'll have to try out the XFCE edition soon to see what changes I need :grin:

keep it up

I have been waiting for this update, especially for the new KDE Barebones edition. Thank you!

While trying to download, I just noticed that links on the main download page point to linux-zen builds. However, for XFCE, KDE Barebones and GNOME Barebones, it seems that there are no linux-zen builds, but linux-lts builds. FYI...

Fixed, thank you! :grin:

Hi, apologies for the newbie question, but do I need to do anything more than just run "System Update" from Garuda Assistant to get the Hawk Eagle version?

Sounds fantastic. Just wanting to know if the KDE versions have Plasma 5.21?

My idea is that the current XFCE (wich I pronounce Ex-Fice) Should be xfce barebones and there should by a sweetifies XFCE version.

Yes. It's listed under "Exhaustive changelog" in the first post.

Could you add a brief explanation of what BlackArch edition is on downloads page? I thought it was a more darker theme. Thanks.

I am very new to the Arch world so take this with a grain of salt, I think Blackarch is to Arch Linux, what Kali Linux is to Debian. A penetration testing / offensive security / hacking focused distro.

I also have a question about BlackArch edition.
Why is it more than double the size of the normal edition, when it has just 3-4 packages from BA repo?

:love_you_gesture:

Will it be available as an update?

Because it includes these packages

Thanks for the suggestion, but I have zero plans to do this... At this time at least.

Xfce is about keeping a lean yet functional and highly stable desktop environment. This is also the reason I’ve changed Xfce to now use the latest LTS kernel, instead of the ever changing mainline.

Please feel free though to let me know exactly what extra packages you think should be added and a brief description why. You never know what the future holds :+1:

I really like that you made the auto-cpufreq daemon "opt-in". Especially for the Dragonized Gaming Edition it makes sense to have the performance governor activated by default.

And I also appreciate the default kernel selection, as I had a lot of trouble with tkg-bmq and have always replaced it with zen right after installation. :slightly_smiling_face:

A small, insignificant graphical error on my machine that I wanted to bring to attention after updating. This is the upper left corner of the screen, where the Eagle would be previously, looks to be a glob of a pixelated dragon. Is this supposed to look like this?

PS - I sure hope I followed the rules properly for posting a bug report...
