antiX-17.2 released

antiX-17.2 (Helen Keller) released

This is primarily a point-release upgrade of antiX-17.1 (Heather Heyer) with a new L1TF/Foreshadow and Meltdown/Spectre patched kernel, various bugfixes, updated translations and some upgraded packages.
As usual we offer the following completely systemd-free flavours for both 32 and 64 bit architecture.

antiX-full (c1GB) – 4 windows managers – IceWM (default), fluxbox, jwm and herbstluftwm plus full libreoffice suite.

antiX-base (c680MB so fits on a cd) – 4 windows managers – IceWM (default), fluxbox, jwm and

antiX-core (c330MB) – no X, but should support most wireless.

antiX-net (c170MB)- no X. Just enough to get you connected (wired) and ready to build.

The 32 bit version uses a non-pae kernel.

So what has changed since antiX-17.1 release?
* new 4.9.126 kernel patched for L1TF/Foreshadow and Meltdown/Spectre exploits
* all packages upgraded to Debian 9.5
* eudev updated to 3.6
* firefox-esr upgraded to 60.2.2 (Quantum)
* our nosystemd version of pulseaudio included
* non free debs moved from main to nonfree in antiX repos
* improved localization
* antiX-full – gz compression is used, which makes the live iso faster to boot, but bigger in size

So, why should I use antiX?
* systemd-free!
* fast
* stable
* flexible
* light on system resources
* Install to harddrive,
* Set up and run live from an encrypted stick with persistence and remaster
* Frugal install on a partition.
* Option to run bleeding edge Debian Testing (buster) or sid.
The choice is yours!
