There are several releases of antiX supported concurrently. These typically follow Debian’s periods of active development and extended long-term support, which provides security patches to a limited set of packages. Often this equates to ~2 years of active support and 2 years of long-term security patch support.

AntiX officially supports 32-bit non-PAE (i586-compatible), 32-bit PAE (i686-compatible) and 64-bit x86 processors.
