Hi everyone,

We discovered several last-minute issues that required us to delay our new stable release. However, with a little bit of patience and hard work, we think everything worked out well.

With that in mind, we are giving you a taste of the upcoming stable release. For the first time, we are releasing a RC version of our images. The stable release will come some time next week but this RC should work without problems.

We are not making an official announcement of what is new and what was fixed just yet. Things can change (although not so much) from this RC to the final stable release. One thing I am excited to announce is that Antergos is partnering with the Numix Project to create an exclusive edition of Numix Themes for our desktops (both GTK and QT). In this RC, you will be able to enjoy some premature advances of this agreement in the form of the icon theme. We’re not sure if the rest of the design will be make it into this release or if it will be postponed until next stable release.

Please try the RC images and let us know if we are ready for a stable release.

Besides this RC announcement, we would like to tell you that our automated Sunday build service (auta) is not longer working for some reason. Although we will be investigating the issue further, the Sunday Testing Images are suspended until further notice. If you want to help us figure it out what the hell is happening, please don’t hesitate to talk about it in our forums and we will provide the pertinent details.

That’s it guys. Enjoy… and see you soon (I hope)
