Virtual Box 5.2.14 for MX 17 test repo plus the matching guest-additions-iso and ext-pack installer packages.

Edit: also the new GIMP 2.10.4 release, which also requires a newer babl and gegl than are in Debian, so am packaging all from the developer tarball source.

Nope. I ll get it on the next release. Tx for the reminder.
If you've never done that before, the two files that need changing are debian/control and debian/compat.
The only ones that needed the bump was the set for MX14/MEPIS-12 - done and on their way up.

Working on GnuCash 3.2. It requires a backport of guile-2.2, since builds against guile-2.0 in the Stretch repo died with a failure in the test phase after compiling. It's also compiled against an updated libaqbanking and webkit2gtk.

Where is Calibre 3.27.1? I checked the MX TestRepo and not there, and the full apt shows 3.26.1.

Packages being worked on. Not native speaker but it seems clear to me. Sometimes there are announcements of things to come.
I'm not moderator but you should post in another thread as this one is reserved for packagers. (Moderators: don't hesitate to delete my post)

Whoops, apparently the PM to Tim with the link for Calibre fell between the gears. It should be in main soon, or can be installed with the calibre and calibre-bin package for your architecture early from here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1SSL9F ... 7tfdzrFYvd
