A file with a .pacnew extension may be created by pacman during a package upgrade. Sometimes rather than write over an old configuration file with its newer version, pacman will create the new version by adding the .pacnew extension and leave the original file untouched. The .pacnew and original file should be checked and merged manually by the user.
