We are extremely pleased to announce the release of '''MX-15''' (codename ''Fusion'')
based on the reliable and stable Debian Jessie (8.2) with extra enhancements and up to date applications provided by our packaging team.

Just like MX-14, this release defaults to sysVinit (though systemd is available once installed).

Available in 32 and 64 bit.

The 32 bit version ships with 2 stable 3.16 Debian kernels (pae and non-pae), while
the 64 bit comes with the more recent kernel 4.2 Debian backports kernel to cater for newer hardware.

Both iso files weigh in at around 1GB in size.

Known issues

* There have been some problems reported with the 64-bit graphics driver with some Intel hardware (IvyBridge, Sandy Bridge, and Bay Trails). If you experience problems on one of these systems then we suggest you use the 32-bit version of MX-15 for now or try installing an earlier kernel (pre-4 releases). When the 64-bit graphics driver gets fixed will will issue an update. The "F6 Failsave" --> "safe video" options should get you working graphics without acceleration or high resolution.
*If for some inexplicable reason user wants to try out systemd as shown in the Advanced boot menu, you will need to remove rtkit while in sysvinit first, otherwise you will not get mouse/keyboard at systemd desktop. You will then need to set up systemd to work best with your hardware. MX devs strongly advise users to keep to the default sysVinit.
*On 32 bit iso, non-pae kernel version does not boot. A fix is on its way or boot using pae kernel, install and then use the non-pae kernel.

To install to usb in Windows, use Rufus not Unetbootin.

I would like to thank the antiX/MX development team for all their hard work in getting MX-15 released to such a high standard.
This also includes the translators and alpha/beta testers.


Enjoy!

Any changes since the rc2 deltas released a little while ago or is it better to start from scratch with the new iso in this thread?

I have both deltas (i386 & 64 Bit) just sitting ready to merge with rc1 isos I have on file. Just wondering?

If you just want to run it installed, then both RC1 and RC2 upgraded via the repos give you 99.8% of the final. If, however, you intend to run live/frugal then download the final.
