    When does antiX support for stable version 17 (and version 19 when it’s finally released – not the beta)
    come to an end?

    I’m just planning ahead and wondering if I should hang on till the version 19 stable release comes out, to give me a longer period of uninterrupted time to build my system.

    Thanks.

    As long as Debian, I think, but I’m only a user these days, wait for the official comment. 🙂

    My antix 15 alpha 32 bit install still gets updates so I would not sweat it. Build away.

    I notice antiX-19 is now in its 3rd beta release. Am I right in thinking that
    the stable release will be sometime in September 2019?

    Thanks anticapitalista

    Probably, but no guarantee.

    I never understood in the debian universe and in all rolling distributions why are people so uptight about editions like they are fixed.

    If someone can explain to me in what way would the installed 19b1, 19b2, 19b3, and 19 be different when fully updated in January 1 2020 I would be obliged for life. If the same setup/DE/software are installed by all four, what would the difference be? What would the difference be if you switched repositories from a 17 installation to point to 19?

    I say nothing.

    The main differences occur when there is a major release change that corresponds to a new Debian Stable release.

    If you use Debian Testing or Debian Sid/Unstable, these are rolling releases, so the only thing you concern yourself with is the stability or instability of software changes during a major infrastructure shift. When I’m using Testing or Unstable repositories, I generally watch Debian forum threads to get a “heads up” on major infrastructure changes, and wait until all of the packages needed for the changes are in place. When I do this, I’ve been able in the past to run rolling releases of Debian Sid for 3-5 years without any major issues, and I have back-ups and alternatives to rebuild them when something does fail.

    Summary: major releases of versioned software change the infrastructure. You can in theory “upgrade” from one release to another if you know what you are doing; otherwise it’s a good time to save your personal information, back up your system, clean it out and install new software. I’ve done both with good results, but it does take years of experience to understand the potential “pitfalls” of upgrading major releases on the fly…

    antiX-19 – as long as Debian buster (2022-2025)

    Returning to this thread, I’m a little perplexed by the range 2022-2025 given for support of antix19, as Debian Buster’s end-of-life appears to be in August 2022, according to https://endoflife.software/operating-systems/linux/debian.
    Can someone clarify this …
