Yacreader 9.5.0 for MX 17--MX 15/16's Qt 5 is now too old for it to build.

The latest Debian upstream 4.17.6 kernel backported to use our gcc-6 instead of gcc-7, with the kernel context switch frequency bumped up as usual from 250 to 1000 Hz. That's supposed to be better for desktop use, worse for heavy server use.

Liquorix 4.17-4, based on the 4.17.6 kernel.

Krita 4.1.1 for MX 17 only.

Neofetch 5.0

Edit: First Krita builds failed because one of the files now call out for an include that's only in Qt >= 5.9, but looking at what the code did showed that it only tested for incompatible versions of Windows, so I removed the line with a patch and it worked. :happy:

Virtualbox 5.2.16 packages from Sid. Debian finally added a patch that tests for a Vbox virtual hardware PCI ID and then prevents the guest utils from running if not found, so that annoying error message doesn't pop up, but I think it won't be silent like our own patch..it'll still pop up a message about not starting the guest utils. That'll be an incentive for the user to remove the packages if they don't need them, so I'll leave it in.

edit: this one also needed a new mono.

Built a newer git pull of xserver-xorg-video-intel that fixes video glitches I was getting in 3D games such as 0ad or Chromium-BSU with my 8th-gen GPU. Sending it to the experimental repo, since most users aren't complaining about the glitches...but we will eventually see more of the same new hardware.

Calibre 3.28.0

Debian 4.17.8 kernel, backported from Sid. Just a note that it still appears as 4.17.0-1.

Handbrake 1.1.0 is done for MX 17 after some build failures (learning experiences! ;) ). It might be possible to build it for MX 15/16, but I'll wait for a request for that, since that looks like even more work. I'll do Ancestris 9 and 10~beta now.

I don't know if Handbrake is leveraging my Intel Skylake GPU for transcoding though, through the new libmfx package. The CPU bars and temperature all go to the max when transcoding to x265, though another CPU readout stays down at a few percent at the same time, and I don't see any real speedup over Selene. I'll bite the bullet and reboot into Windows to see what happens there.

I think ffmpeg supports libmfx-dev, too, so maybe I'll rebuild it against that to see what happens.
hello Stevo..

I still used MX16 since the system still fast and robust for daily activity. I want to reducing some my bdrip movie. Mx test repo ship with hb 1.0.7 and x265 1.9. I'm success build latest handbrake-cli 1.1.1 with x265 2.8 but failed with gtk version (require gtk =>3.16 while mx16 with 3.14.5, based on config.log attachment). Latest hb version supporting Intel Quick Sync and Nvidia Encoder

according hwbot x265 benchmark tool that using x265 encoder 2.x.x version have a lot of improve performance specially with 4K video. I'll be happy if you can put hb 1.1.0 in MX16 test repo upgrading from 1.0.7.
HWBOT x265 Benchmark v2.0.0 is based on improved x265 encoder, build 2.0.0.24 (compiled by GCC). Compared to previous version (1.7.0.374 GCC), the new one greatly improves encoding speed on virtually all processor architectures. Also multi threading seems to be better - the bigger your CPU is, the better relative fps gain you can expect. Here you can see performacne figures for most common CPU architectures:

Measured performance gain (64-bit, 1080p):
NetBurst (1C/2T, SSE3) - 17%
Core 2 (2C/2T, SSE4.1) - 28%
Nehalem (4C/8T, SSE4.2) - 35%
Sandy Bridge (4C/4T, AVX) - 34%
Sandy Bridge (8C/16T, AVX) - 41%
Broadwell (8C/16T, AVX2) - 53%
Broadwell (20C/40T, AVX2) - 71%
K8 (2C/2T, SSE2) - 16%
K10 (4C/4T, SSE2) - 16%
15h (2C/2T, AVX) - 28%
15h (32C/32T, AVX) - 48%

Measured performance gain (64-bit, 4k):
15h (32C/32T, AVX) - 102%
Nehalem (4C/8T, SSE4.2) - 78%
Sandy Bridge (4C/4T, AVX) - 76%
Sandy Bridge (8C/16T, AVX) - 89%
Broadwell (8C/16T, AVX2) - 105%
Broadwell (20C/40T, AVX2) - 172%
Thanks for sharing and have a nice day.
