What I saw from @Dolphin_Oracle in a thread here was an estimate for MX with Buster sometime in late summer-early fall (Northern Hemisphere). That's half of your question... :popcorn:

yeah, 19 will be buster. and despite buster's "feature freeze", its still a moving target. I'm not even joking a little. If we did a buster release a month ago, recent updates would have broken it. They keep shifting dependencies definitions on certain key packages.

but if you want to get in on the early buster goodness, check out antiX 19 alpha. its rough but alphas are supposed to be :happy:

Sorry for being off topic but... :p
I have to say I like the antiX19 alpha. I have been trying really hard to tweak every knob I know and a many that I don't; it runs like the Eveready bunny and just keeps on ticking. :bagoverhead:
