Anxiously awaiting. . .

D.O. hinted awhile back that there might be a January (or February?) update of MX17 created. Will there be a "MX17-January" posted in the monthly download section on the MX website, incorporating the bugfixes and patched kernel?
Thank you.

Well, the Spectre/Meltdown drama has gotten in the way a bit, and things are still changing pretty quickly (just had another microcode upgrade). When it looks reasonably stable, I'm confident things will get moving.

EDIT: I see Adrian says a snapshot is coming in a couple of days.
Production: 4.15.0-1-amd64, MX-17, AMD FX-4130 Quad-Core, GeForce GT 630/PCIe/SSE2, 8 GB, Kingston SSD 120 GB and WesternDigital 1TB
Testing: AAO 722: 4.15.0-1-386. MX-17.1, AMD C-60 APU, 4 GB
