The significant highlights in the MX-21 BETA release are as follows:

  • Xfce 4.16, Plasma 5.20, Fluxbox 1.3.7 with MX-Fluxbox 3.0 configs
  • User password (sudo) for admin tasks by default. You can switch this in MX-tweak -> Other tab.
  • New UEFI live system boot menus. Now users can select their live boot options (persistence, etc…) from the boot menu and submenus rather than using the previous console menus.
