I've found out that for Firefox/Iceweasel >= 30, it may need gstreamer1.0-libav in order to play some h.264 HTML5 video, so we could add that to the Depends for the next M12 and MX 15 builds. This may go back to namidia's thread, which I'm too lazy to look up.

I've seen references to MX 15 in other threads, but I always chalked it up to a typo. Now that it showed up again in this thread, I'm not sure. Is there an MX 15 realease that I don't know about, or is Stevo from the future?

At any rate, thanks for the heads up. I've added the gstreamer1.0-libav package.

Not far off I'd say. antiX 15-V has been released so I don't think it will be very long.
Yes, even I am dishonest. Not in many ways, but in some. Forty-one, I think it is.

There's a dev-team only, rough around the edges pre-alpha so various things can be worked on. A public release would be pretty useless at this point.
It is coming along, however. When it gets to the point that bug reports will be helpful (not my call) there will be a public alpha or beta release.

And we've been building MX 15 packages for a while now to populate the repository ahead of time.
