The Vim suite of packages has been reorganized to better provide advanced features in the standard vim package, and to split the CLI and GUI versions; the new packages are:

* vim-minimal: identical to the previous vim package
* vim: now includes all the features from gvim which includes the python, lua, and ruby interpreters, without GTK/X support
* vim-python3: same as the above for gvim-python3
* gvim: same as before
* gvim-python3: same as before
* vim-runtime: same as before

In the interest of not dividing the Arch Linux community on Google+, we've decided to select the "Arch Linux" community as the official one.

The "Arch Linux Users" community will be deleted shortly.

Never thought e17 will be released this lifetime, I thought it was going to take two lifetimes more to be stable.

Cups 1.6.1 hits extra repository. Check our cups wiki page and upstream announcements for changes. Some configuration setting (mainly printer browsing related) may need to be fixed.

Install media 2012.07.15 released

New iso images containing a current Arch Linux snapshot have been released and can be found on our Download page.

Most notable change is that AIF (the Arch Installation Framework) is no longer included but instead some simple install scripts are provided to aid in the installation process. This means a menu driven installer is no longer available and we rely more on documentation to guide new users. We would like to encourage our community to fill in the remaining gaps in our wiki.

From now on our install images are signed and it is highly recommend to verify their signature before use. On Arch Linux this can be done by using pacman-key -v <iso-file>.sig.

The pacman keyring is automatically initialized on bootup. Therefore signature verification is available on the live media and will work out of the box on the installed system.
Instead of six different images we only provide a single one which can be booted into an i686 and x86_64 live system to install Arch Linux over the network. Media containing the [core] repository are no longer provided.
Regular iso snapshots are planned on a monthly basis.
The install media can also be booted directly via PXE. Note that its PGP signature cannot be verified this way!
More archiso related options and new features can be found in its README file.
AIF had to be dropped due to lack of maintenance and contributions. Of course we would appreciate it if people would start hacking on it to bring it up to par.

+Keith Patton I use it everwhere but my server .. use CentOS for that (since it's more of long term distro and my wife hates when I mess with it too much). =)

End of initscripts support

As systemd is now the default init system, Arch Linux is receiving minimal testing on initscripts systems. Due to a lack of resources and interest, we are unlikely to work on fixing initscripts-specific bugs, and may close them as WONTFIX.

We therefore strongly encourage all users to migrate to systemd as soon as possible. See the systemd migration guide.

To ease the transition, initscripts support will remain in the official repositories for the time being, unless otherwise stated. As of January 2013, we will start removing initscripts support (e.g., rc scripts) from individual packages without further notice.

Hi all,
the new #KDE major release[1] has been moved to [extra].
Read the upstream changelog for the new features/bug fixes.

The KDE Multimedia development has been moved to git. As consequence of this, 
the kdemultimedia-kioslave package has been removed and split into:
* kdemultimedia-audiocd-kio
* libkcddb
* libkcompactdisc

Every maintainer of the packages depending on the -kioslave package should 
check the dependencies.

Also libkipi, libkexiv2 and libdcraw packages have a soname bump, 
respectively:
libkipi.so.8 -> libkipi.so.9
libkdcraw.so.20 -> libkdcraw.so.21
libkexiv2.so.10 -> libkexiv2.so.11
The packages in the official repos have been rebuilt.

The kdesdk-kdeaccounts-plugin, kdesdk-kdepalettes and kdeutils-ksecrets 
packages have been removed.

Have a nice update!

All Arch Linux packages have had their files in the /lib directory moved to /usr/lib and now /lib is a symlink to usr/lib. When performing this update, pacman will likely identify a conflict in the /lib directory. In the simplest case, this is worked around by doing:

pacman -Syu --ignore glibc
pacman -Su

Never use --force during this update.

If either of this steps does not work (e.g. due to dependency version issues, file conflicts in /lib), refer to this guide[1] for more detailed instructions on performing this upgrade.

I meet with the same problem when upgrading glibc-2.16-2.  I just realised that it is impossible for pacman —Syu ——ignore glibc && pacman —S glibc to work.  The only way I can get it to work is to boot into another Linux distro (in my case, Debian 6), mount -t auto /dev/[arch] /mnt/arch; cd /mnt/arch; mv lib lib—; xz —dc /var/.../glibc-2.16.2* |tar xf —.  Then reboot into Linux and pacman —S glibc again.

Introduction

A lightweight and flexible Linux® distribution that tries to Keep It Simple.

Currently we have official packages optimized for the i686 and x86-64 architectures. We complement our official package sets with a community-operated package repository that grows in size and quality each and every day.

Our strong community is diverse and helpful, and we pride ourselves on the range of skillsets and uses for Arch that stem from it.
