The MX Linux team is working on a number of new features which will appear in the upcoming release of MX Linux 17.1. The new version will feature mostly bug fixes since the release of version 17, including patches for the Meltdown and Spectre CPU flaws. Other improvements include new translations and accessibility options: "There have been a lot of updates lately to several packages while we get ready to build the new MX-17.1 ISO. mx-installer - updated to address an issue with boot flags that affected some PCs when using legacy MBR boots. mx-packageinstaller - recently updated with a better and faster interface. Tons of new translations for most of the MX Tool apps. lightdm-gtk-greeter-mx17 - This will enable the selection of an on-screen keyboard from the accessibility menu of the LightDM login screen. This will be the default on the MX 17.1 ISO, but the change only takes place for existing installations if the user resets the LightDM configuration using the new Config Options tab in mx-tweak. Any auto-login settings in place will not be affected by the change." A list of additional improvements can be found in the project's blog post.
