Manjaro Linux 16.08 second preview released

Manjaro Linux 16.08 Ellada is getting closer to it to its final release,as second preview of Manjaro Linux 16.08 is now available to download.Just around a week ago first preview was announced and now the second preview release is announced.
This new second preview comes with many improvements from the first one.This second preview comes with Linux Kernel 4.6,which brings a stable base for it and I guess final release may be released with this Kernel as new Kernel 4.7 will take time to adjust the environment.And there are some Bug fixes to Mesa 12.

The most interesting update in this release is the updated Graphical Installer,which is updated to version v2.4 beta2.This update brings following new features as according to the announcement:
  • Support for already mounted loop filesystems as source for the unpackfs operation (thanks to BlackPantherOS developer hmikihth)
  • Fixes in the machineid module to ensure randomness (thanks to Manjaro developer Philip Müller)
  • Improved support for LC_* variables in localecfg module (expect more of this next week)
  • Fixed an issue which used to scramble partition colors and detected operating system names when operating on logical partitions (please test this as it required substantial changes in the partition module)
  • Fixed a (rare) crash in the partition module
  • CI is back, so translations are much more current now
  • Support for reusing an existing /home partition if detected in the /etc/fstab file of an existing operating system
  • New netinstall module (by Luca Giambonini and Lisa Vitolo) which offers the user a choice of packages to install. (Not active on all editions)
  • A long standing and hard to debug issue with occasional unwanted resize operations being executed got fixed
  • A partitioning module configuration option for showing partition labels in the manual partitioning interface got added
  • support for NVME devices in fstab got improved
  • mke2fs and e2fsck handling, which fixes a multitude of random (but not very frequent) install failures got much improved
  • A type to search support in the keyboard module got implemented
  • A partitioning module configuration option for selecting the default filesystem type got added
  • End2End luks encryption
  • The usual assortment of minor warning and bug fixes.
Manjaro Linux 16.08 second preview can be downloaded from here in both 32-bit and 64-bit and here is the official announcement
