Major update today.
Due to a C++ ABI update there are many packages rebuilt and updated.
Manjaro 15.09 (15.12-rc2) update-pack 10:
Included in this update:
KDE Frameworks 5.17
Libreoffice fresh 5.0.3-2
Many other bug fixes and updates.
Linux kernel 4.2 has reached EOL, it is recommended changing to another kernel series.
The following packages have been dropped from our repositories due to official upstream Plasma 5 replacements:
kdeconnect-git – kdeconnect
ttf-noto-sans-fonts – noto-fonts
gnome-breeze-git – breeze-gtk
It is recommended (but not required) that these package be removed and the official package be installed from the Manjaro repositories. The gnome-breeze-git and kdeconnect-git packages will continue to receive updates via the AUR using octopi as they become available. Modification to Gnome Application Style (GTK) settings under system settings > Desktop Appearance will be required if you swap these two packages out. The noto-fonts package is installed by default with the frameworkintegration package update. The ttf-noto-sans-fonts package will be ignored by the system so it should be safe to remove this package.
Support for oxygen icons has been dropped upstream and will receive no further updates.
The graphics have been removed from our Blue-x splash screen. However, the Netrunner splash screen theme still has the graphics at this time if you still wish to still have our splash screen during log in.
Support for KDE4 has been officially dropped upstream, all KDE4 users should take the time now to switch over to Plasma 5
This update also includes the usual Archlinux upstream fixes as of Thu. Dec 17, 2015
Due to the size and nature of this update the following command line is recommended to perform this update:
Yea, the two Removable Drives is an upstream Plasma issue, one of them needs a new name, something like removable media maybe.
Just refresh your repositories and the manjaro-settings-manager icon will go away, I’m not quite sure what’s causing this. All I can say for sure is that the kcm-msm, and manjaro-settings-manager packages, have both receive a lot of updates in the unstable and testing branches lately.
I do not know if I should wait, but this is what I got on upgrading with the recommended command:

The xembedsniproxy was installed to facilitate the display of the Dropbox icon in the system tray, IIRC.
FYI, I did not explicitly remove the three packages mentioned above as I had not seen this thread then.
You’ll need to remove the xembed-sni-proxy package, it has already been integrated into Plasma-workspaces upstream.
This is why that package was removed from the Manjaro repositories.
You don’t have to remove those if you don’t want to, it is just recommended if you would rather install and use the official versions.
However, ttf-noto-sans-fonts should be removoved if you need the HD space since it’s not being used by your system anyway.
