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.
