antiX MX Linux 18.3 Released with Latest Debian GNU/Linux 9.9 “Stretch” Updates

MX Linux 18.3 is now available and ships with Linux kernel 4.19.37-2 and it’s fully synced with the software repositories of the latest Debian GNU/Linux 9.9 “Stretch” operating system release, which means that it is fully patched against the recently disclosed Intel MDS (Microarchitectural Data Sampling) security vulnerabilities found in Intel microprocessors. This release also includes an updated installer (mx-installer) that now lets users input system configuration selections during installation while the installer copies the system files to speed up the installation process. The UEFI boot installation was improved as well in MX Linux 18.3, which should now be compatible with more UEFI systems.
