We already checked the box for the necessary base install in the online installer menu, all you have to do is check the box of your desired DE.

The new features and fixes on this release are:
The Welcome app
The Welcome app has received major updates:
- Received Chinese translations (A big shoutout to Felixonmars for this)
- New button to change display resolutions – This function is only available in the Live environment, especially for virtual machine installs.
- The button Update mirrors now ships with a check if reflector-simple is installed.
- Two link buttons that each brings the user to the Arch repo page or the AUR page to browse for packages.
- An Archlinux ARM button link.
- Buttons that adds our DE specific wallpaper by default, so no more pop-up that asks for permission anymore.

- Various bugfixes
The installation process received some major updates:
- The new archiso is implemented
- Keychain server bug is fixed
- Nvidia-installer has been updated to the latest Nvidia updates and changes. It also received some small bugfixes.
- Gnome software will not be installed by default on Gnome and Budgie, it brought too much confusion with new users thinking it was our software centre.
- Discover will not be installed by default on Plasma for the same reason as above.
- eos-update-notifier doesn’t show Arch news by default anymore, it was causing a lot of confusion with new users who received outdated manual interventions. It also received a bugfix in showing AUR updates.
- eos-update-notifier has a redesigned scheduler which now can be set to hourly, daily, weekly and monthly with a GUI.
- Bugfix for people who enabled auto login not able to get into the DE.
- Deepin autologin is also fixed
- Calamares has some new slides
- The panel now has clickable areas for browser, terminal and file manager to make it more newbie-friendly.
- Keybindings hint button now uses xed.
- Block button for an email client has been added, ready for the user to configure it to the email client of their choice.
This release is shipping with new wallpapers, existing users can get them with the wallpaper buttons on the Welcome app.
Deepin V.20 has been reported with some bugs and improvements are being uploaded on regular bases. At this moment we recommend to install Deepin as a secondary DE for testing purposes. All the other DE choices are very suitable as a primary DE.
As a reminder to Nvidia card users, our nvidia-installer is installed by default after install. You only have to follow our wiki for instructions, the link is provided in our Welcome menu.

In the need for latest sources?
We do upload snapshots of the ISO from the latest development stage, so in case you need something more up to date for the Live ISO, take one of these, but be careful and may better ask if there are known issues with the latest devel ISO!
Currently the latest one is needed for the support of latest Nvidia Cards and also AMD ones comming out lately.
