antiX-17-b1-full available for public testing

This is our first public beta of antiX-17 full version built on the recently released Debian Stretch base.

Some quick information. (Note full version no longer fits on a cd - it is c.808MB)

* Based on Debian Stretch, but without systemd nor systemd-shim.
* Customised 4.10.5 kernel with fbcondecor splash
* libreoffice 5.2.7-1
* firefox-esr 52.2.0
* claws-mail 3.14.1-3+b1
* xmms -for audio
* gnome-mpv - for playing video
* smtube 17.1.0 - play youtube videos without a using a browser
* streamlight-antix - stream videos with very low RAM usage
* eudev

We have also included some applications built by the MX team and ported them to this version of antiX.

* packageinstaller replaces metapackage-installer
* bootrepair
* ddm-mx to set up Nvidia driver
* codecs to easily install restricted codecs
* broadcom manager for network troubleshooting

New applications

* Lxkeymap to change session keyboard layout
* Fskbsetting to set installed system keymaps

Some new and improved cli apps - please test.

* cli-aptiX - synaptic for the command line ((WIP)
* antiX-cli-cc - cli control centre - have fun watching videos, playing audio without any need for Xorg (WIP)
* live-usb-maker now with encryption option


Known issues:

* spotify does not install in packageinstaller (others?)
* live boot - internet works ok with ethernet ootb, but does not work after installed. Use ceni to set it up again - make sure you use auto option.
* conky blurs when switching themes in IceWM

I don't know that antiX has a social media presence, but I have announced it on the MX Facebook and Twitter sites with a link to the antiX Forum announcement.

2 hrs later: retweets so far to 582 followers, and now visible to our 500+ FB followers.

Just took a quick look Live, and it is terrific! Congrats.

Only thing I noticed in a once-over is that when I tried to install a printer some complicated dialog box pops up and says the service is not enabled. Don't see why that shouldn't be enabled by default myself instead of making users go through an extra and not user-friendly step.

Running live turns off cups. Try it without the disable=lx live boot menu cheat.
