    There will be some upgrades in the stretch antiX repositories that users should note.

    smxi-inxi-antix – inxi now uses perl rather than bash so should run faster. Also, there is now an /etc/inxi.conf file that has inxi -U upgrade disabled (set to false).

    remaster-antix scripts – new default option when remastering set to lz4 compression. This makes the remaster process much faster and cooler. However, the final linuxfs file is much bigger than one created by xz or gzip (c66% larger).
    Users can still choose gzip, xz for their compression.

    Note: Running frugal install on my laptop (i5 6GB RAM, ssd hard drive), lz4 is fantastic. xz is much better though when running live from a small (4GB), slow usb stick (usb2 – no usb3 on this old laptop).

    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.
