We've updated 4.19.12 in the test repo to 4.19.13, keeping the same 4.19.0-1 ABI name, so it will be seen as an upgrade to all the 4.19 Debian-type kernels in our repo, including the stock one in MX 18.
Upgraded today. Nothing to mention for the moment.

We now have the latest backport from Sid, the 4.19.16 kernel, in the test repo, except this has the 4.19.0-2 ABI, so won't be an automatic upgrade to the MX 18 kernel.

We now have the latest 4.19.0-5 (4.19.37) kernel, backported from Sid, in the test repo. Perhaps this update will be the default kernel in a proposed MX 18.3 point release, but we need testers besides me!
