We are pleased to offer MX-19.3 for your use.
MX-19.3 is the third refresh of our MX-19 release, consisting of bugfixes and application updates since our original release of MX-19. If you are already running MX-19, there is no need to reinstall. Packages are all available thru the regular update channel.
Migration notes are here: https://mxlinux.org/migration

The KDE iso has also been updated, and being based on AHS, also has the 5.8 kernel and updated firmware and mesa packages.
