Puppy Linux 5.2.5 Released
is our official flagship Puppy Linux release. Version 5.2 was released on January 6th, (see blog announcement
) and since then the team has been feverishly developing the next version -- and it has now arrived!
is the most leading-edge Lucid ever and a Five Digit Update from Lucid 5.2. It has Bash 4.1.0, an upgrade from Bash 3, Syslinux 4.03, an upgrade from Syslinux 3, and e2fsprogs 1.41.14, the latest from Ubuntu Natty Narwhal. Quickpet will also open the Puppy Package Manager which is chock full of even more programs tested and configured for Lucid Puppy, including language packs for 11 different languages. PPM
has other window managers ready to install, XFCE and Fluxbox, but Lucid even has JWM built in as an alternate--and of course a WM Switcher to make it all simple. Puppy is still a compact distro, fast and lean, but with all of these resources there is virtually nothing it cannot do.
Team Coordinator Larry Short has put together this brief announcement -:

Gnumeric 1.10.13 is a necessity because our forum member yarddog had posted a bug to Gnumeric that is corrected in 1.0.13. Lucid 5.2.5 uses the Woof of FEB 28 replacing the Woof of NOV 28 for 3 months of progress in Woof development. All of the favorite Puppy programs are there in their latest versions. Check out Pburn by zigbert which now compares favorably with Nero Linux. Gnome-mplayer 1.02 compiled by forum member ttuuxxx is a substantial improvement and now works well with both the Openbox and JWM window managers. All this and the low overhead that makes Puppy fast, friendly and fun.
