    The Debian Wiki does not have the release date for Version 11 yet.
    Build freezing is listed in January 2021, soft freeze February 2021, hard freeze March 12, 2021.

    Full freeze and release date have not been determined according to the Wiki information.

    Based on at least two of the previous Debian releases in recent years, May 2021 is a good guess.

    Mr. Brian, I thank you for the technical explanations, as this is exactly what we need, to learn more and together!

    This is all about sharing, helping and learning together. Both the teacher and the students learn from each other in this community.

    So many people here have taught me a great deal of useful things. Thanks to each person here for the questions and answers, both are valuable.

    great work on the 19.3 dev team,

    the only issue I had was already mentioned previously by xinomilo

    
    – cli-installer :
    1) missing partition-info package (not installed in iso)
    

    I partition my disk and write down before running the installer so
    no biggie. I am using the 64 bit 19.3 core sid-runit and built up
    to run wayland with sway and kittyterm so far is working great as
    I am learning sway, wayland and different ways to build up the rice
    desktops. this is on a hp pavillion g6 laptop 8gb ram and amd dual core.

    Normal == 🙂
    depends on the surrounding crowd ?!

    Good idea!

    It’s been several years since I’ve worked extensively with Core. I used it often about a decade ago when MEPIS used KDE. My antiX Core custom made system was a minimal Xfce desktop environment with just the minimum Xfce packages and only the applications that I used at the time.

    I’ll do something like that again using a different environment and replace one of the distros that I am tired of using.

    Thanks for the”inspiration”!

    thanks masinick,

    Thanks for the ”inspiration”!

    This is what community and cooperation is all about and sharing
    ideas to enjoy. glad my personal learning adventure is inspiring
    you to experiment as well.

    on 19.3 sid is synaptic or a gui package manager available/supported.
    haven’t tested if synaptic works on sid or not yet. I know it didn’t
    before on sid. Also thanks anti for updated security patched kernels.

    I grabbed a runit buster version of antiX 19.3 Core instead of the Sid version you chose.

    I’m starting to choose my apps and environment. Since I already have several antiX and MX Linux partitions already I want to construct something fairly unique. It’ll have some common [programs with my own setup for the typical Web browser work I use.

    masinick,

    I redid it on my dell inspiron 1525 and posted a screenshot taken on it
    and posted from it. wow it is working great and is my first venture into
    an I3 type desktop. so far I have the terminal setup with very low ram usage
    and the badwolf browser going. looking into other apps.
    19.3 so far is great. don’t want to side track this thread maybe we could
    make a new one about 19.3 adventures and experiments 🙂

    Some purists avoid anything other than apt-get on Sid. As long as you can recover from any unexpected behavior, which as a Sid user I hope that is the case, use whatever you want, take risks. I did for years with Sid and it was almost a decade before I wrecked a system. I was ready to replace it, so I was happy to find a creative way to destroy it.

    Anyway I think that you did a great job with your setup.

    I’m putting together my 4th antiX set-up on my Dell, plus I have one more on another system and several USB devices with antiX so I can bring up various versions as desired.

    Nice work!

    Simple curiosity, if the current version is antiX-19.3 (Manolis Glezos), because there is no “antiX-release” package that overwrite:

    
    ...
    Distro: antiX-19.2-runit_x64-full Hannie Schaft 28 March 2020
    ...
    
    >_ cat /etc/debian_version
    10.7
