We are happy to announce our newest public service: A manual pages indexing site at man.archlinux.org that publishes the man pages of all our packages and allows you to search and browse them. Check out, for example, the man page of tar.
You can also find this service linked to in the sidebar as well as on every package detail page. Thanks to Wiki Admin lahwaacz for developing archmanweb for this purpose.
While there are other man page indexing sites out there, it is our hope that publishing man pages matching the versions of our released packages further improves Arch accessibility and documentation.
Due to issues with our anti spam measures, we had to migrate those mailing lists, that were sent from @archlinux.org before to the
Submission to the mailing list is not affected and still works with @archlinux.org. Mails get redirected automagically.
The only change that may need to be considered on your side are filters and rules matching the From or List-id header which changed accordingly.
We are very happy to announce that accessibility features have been added to our installation medium with archiso v49.
From release 2020.11.01 onward these are available via the 2nd boot loader
menu item. A specific installation guide can be found on the wiki.
Many thanks go to Alexander Epaneshnikov who integrated the features from the TalkingArch project into archiso's releng profile, which is used for creating the installation medium.
Note: The boot loader timeouts have been set to 15s to allow blind users to select the menu item as the boot loaders themselves do not offer accessibility features.
The libtraceevent package prior to version 5.9-1 was missing a soname link. This has been fixed in 5.9-1, so the upgrade will need to overwrite the untracked files created by ldconfig. If you get any
of these errors
libtraceevent: /usr/lib/libtraceevent.so.1 exists in filesystem
when updating, use
pacman -Syu --overwrite /usr/lib/libtraceevent.so.1
to perform the upgrade.
nvidia is currently partially incompatible with linux >= 5.9  .
While graphics should work fine, CUDA, OpenCL, and likely other features are broken. Users
who've already upgraded and need those features are advised to switch to
the linux-lts kernel for the time being until a fix for nvidia is available.
