Happy Debian Day! 26 years!

(MX Linux is based on Debian) :debian:

Congratulations to Xfce / Sean Davis (Xubuntu Technical Lead and Xfce Core) on the release of Xfce 4.14.

MX Linux boosted

MX Linux uses Xfce-desktop by default.

Xfce's version 4.12 release is from 2015 and the years of working process is finally reaching the wanted milestone.

Xfce developers have been porting components from GTK2 to GTK3 amongst many other things to modernize the experience.

The much anticipated Xfce 4.14 is now cited for a release mid-August!

This is likely to be a great release for MX to exploit in the upcoming.

Good to see!

We're in the midst of developing MX-19 now for release this Fall.

Installed an early alpha of MX-19 on X1 Carbon 5th gen, and every single key and function works OOTB!

Nice not to have to chase drivers, fix key bindings and all that tiresome stuff. Well done.

Fancy a KDE desktop rather than Xfce on MX Linux?

It is possible and here's a smooth customization video from Desktop Linuxer with fun music! 🤣

Looking for a way to contribute to the MX and/or antiX projects?

We are looking for a translations coordinator to help our current translations team!

Christmas in July? If you missed the xsnow program, which hasn't worked on MEPIS or MX for years, we now have the new, working 2.0.8 release in our main MX 17/18 and 19 repo!

Firefox 69 for Linux: to bring even more performance boost.

The recent release of Mozilla Firefox 68 brought in some nice performance improvements that Linux users can enjoy.

Firefox 69 (now @ beta) opens up even better experience, including enabling WebRender on Linux.

Firefox 69.0 is to be released on 3 September indeed with WebRender enhancements, disabling the Adobe Flash plug-in by default (finally!) +more.

The slick new ebook reader, Foliate, will soon be updated to 1.5.0 in our test repo.

This release adds support for mobi, azw, and azw3 format ebooks as well as for text-to-speech!

This beta 2 is gorgeous and sophisticated, and will knock people's 🧦 off!

==> Check out the lastest antiX 19 beta 2. It looks great!


(antiX is what MX Linux is in part based on).

Steve Pusser: The test repo now has the slick new epub ebook reader, Foliate 1.4.0.

I believe we are the first Debian-based distro to package it! OMGUbuntu has a post about it:

Check it out on the official MX Linux website on the right hand corner...

I've been moving between different computers lately and I think Windows is my least favourite desktop operating system. It's the only one that fails at basic tasks out-of-the-box and the only one that forces reboots when I'm trying to use it.

Hey look more xfce goodness coming down the pike.

MX Linux utilises Xfce desktop environment and good news related are coming in.

Xfce developer Simon Steinbeiss: as scheduled we released Xfce 4.14pre2 yesterday!
