MX Linux, a desktop-oriented Linux distribution with a choice of Xfce or KDE Plasma and based on Debian’s latest stable release, has been updated to version 19.3: “We are pleased to offer MX Linux 19.3 for your use. MX Linux 19.3 is the third refresh of our MX 19 release, consisting of bug fixes and application updates since our original release of MX 19. If you are already running MX 19, there is no need to re-install. Packages are all available through the regular update channel. The standard MX Linux 19.3 releases (32-bit and 64-bit) feature the latest Debian 4.19 Linux kernel and, unlike in the past, the kernel will now auto-update along with Debian sources by default. The AHS (Advanced Hardware Support) ISO image features a Debian 5.8 Linux kernel, MESA 20, as well as a new updated firmware package. The KDE ISO image has also been updated and, being based on AHS, also has the 5.8 Linux kernel, together with updated firmware and MESA packages.” Here is the full release announcement.
