Manjaro with Gnome 3.16 released!

I run Manjaro Linux for my development work. I love the nature of rolling releases. I also love Manjaro because they include all of the latest software like Netbeans 8.0.2 and Virtualbox 4.3.26. I don't need to worry about compiling software, it's just there. I look forward to all of the minor releases that Manjaro brings. I also run Gnome as my window manager and Manjaro supports Gnome as community release, not as primary, which is XFCE and KDE.

I just started discovering all of the new things but from what I see, the desktop looks clean and sharp. I look forward to finding all of the fresh new things in Gnome 3.16. Also, Linux 4.0 is made available at this point. I'll wait on that one. Here's the blog post for the release.
