Congratulations to Xfce / Sean Davis (Xubuntu Technical Lead and Xfce Core) on the release of Xfce 4.14.
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.
Installed an early alpha of MX-19 on #thinkpad 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.
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:
