Re: MX-18

We'll have something sooner, it's not clear what the name will be, most likely 17.2 since that's what the devs talked (I personally was advocating for 18 since we are in 2018).

Some Debian packages can generate dependencies on the fly during the build depending on the distro release, openjdk packages for example, but that takes a pretty complicated setu...

Re: Snapd? Is it just a pipe dream on anything but Ubuntu?

I think you need to use systemd to use snaps, there's a Wiki about setting up snaps https://mxlinux.org/wiki/applications/s ... ages-mx-17 but not sure how accurate that is, maybe you can contribute at least with some feedback.

Re: Monthly snapshot announcement

Re: Monthly snapshot announcement

You cannot replace it it's a different ISO with different name and md5 sum. Don't see a solution here, people need to choose to download the snapshot -- I mean the best thing probably would be to update a previous ISO using zsync.
