Yeah...thunderbird 60 is finally out, and we can't build that with cargo 0.25 in Stretch.

Do we want to switch back to mozillabinary builds? We'll need to fix the language pack problem then; I did a end run around that issue by switching to the source build packages. Maybe Debian will push out security updates to the 52.X series, and we can stick with that.

I was waiting for 60 to move from debian experimental to sid. I could to old school mozilla builds but it's going to throw some of our users who would be expecting the new calendar behavior.

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

We still can't build the Sid source with cargo >= 0.25. Since it requires earlier versions of cargo to build, I went back to cargo 0.7 and tried to build that, but those attempts failed. :frown:

Anyway, sending up the Liquorix kernel builds 4.17.0-9 to the test repo, based on 4.17.13.

Too bad. I'm not in love with reversing the thunderbird situation again

One rather quirky workaround would be to install one of Ubuntu's backported cargo versions--I'm going to test it in Stretch with Trusty's. Cargo is a build tool, and you don't need it to run the finished packages. However, MX-16/Jessie doesn't have the other build-deps that Debian 9.5 added, so those users are going to have to stick with 52.9, or manually install 60.0 themselves.

I noticed that Debian pushed an openjdk-8 security update to Stretch, but not to Jessie, since it uses 7 as default. Since MX 15/16 has 8 as the default, it's been backported and is going to main for that platform.

Finished Liquorix kernel 4.17-10, which has a workaround for the MuQSS scheduler bug with cpufreq which will reduce power use at idle and extend battery life.

Debian has a new 4.17.14 kernel upstream in Sid, so will backport that before it gets to stretch-backports.
