Yes, I like the logical, calendar-based numbering.
Easier to recognize at a glance.

I use the official number for installation only,
then a similar numbering for my snapshots.
Still thrilled with the snapshot tool. I managed to use fsmithred's Refracta version a few times but antiX & MX have made it much easier to grok.

19.3?!
2019.03 -- I use dates for personal versions it's obviously based on MX-18.1
So do this mean a reinstall is needed?

If you have my previous KDE respin installed you don't need to reinstall, if you have straight MX installed and you want to install KDE you have two choices, do that by yourself or use my respin (in the last case you need obvious to install it -- unless you prefer to use it Live from a USB)

Just wanted to make sure. I've been running 19.1 since Feb. 11th on my tower. Going to put it on a new laptop I have coming. Great spin. Thanks! :-)

....... (probably this will be the last LXQt "release" because of the low interest).
hi,
I love the MX LXQT, it's a shame if this respin stopped. LXQT is great, and should not be underestimated. :frown:
With transparency, shadows, fade effect, the environment is really nice.
I just have some icons problems, but apart from that, it's great, I love this MX lxqt, I want to say that I prefer it to antiX. ;)
So I wanted to ask, where is the project, is there a next iso or update for lxqt?
lxqt deserves to be more widespread. :crossfingers:

Thank you.

It's here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/adrian-test/files/ it was updated in March, it's not a problem to keep updating the ISO if there's some interest in that.

Well, thank you, if it can go on and on. It's really a modern like DE.
And what about LXQT 0.14, are you going to bring it for this respin?

I'm trying to keep things in respins that come from regular repos, I actually tried to install the latest LXQt from MX Test repo but something when wrong and was not working properly, I will try again next time.
