I have ported/forked some MX Linux packages for use in antiX-17. They are in the repos if users want to test them out.

apt-notifier &

repo-manager

help-mx-repo-manager

antix-viewer

latest Palemoon in repos

Pale Moon 27.7.2 has landed in the main repository. Notably it further “fuzzes” the timer resolution to defeat any Spectre attacks.

Thanks to MX Linux packagers.
