Release date 1st January 2018

What is new


One of the more important changes is that we are a 100% rolling release now. Some of you remember the conkyzen.desktop file that had to be deleted to get that 100%.

Type in the terminal “archmerge-” and press TAB to see all packages we created to become rolling.

They will be reusable when we are on the ArchMergeD iso.

Testing REPO

When working on a new panel for i3 i.e. polybar (still in beta phase) we (developers) needed a way to easily test out new setups and applications. We created a new testing repo that you can also use. Remember it is called TESTING for a reason. No articles, help and/or tutorials available on those applications. You can find the information in your

in version 6.3.

Previous versions need to add these lines to their pacman.conf
