|Lucid Puppy 5.2.8 is the
fastest, friendliest, and most fun Lucid yet. It is the
fastest because it is the first Lucid derivative to use the
C and ffmpeg libraries optimized for i686 computers rather
than the older i386 computers. It is the friendliest because
special attention has been devoted to the user experience.
For instance, 5.2.8 uses the Roxterm console which has copy
and paste and other features like a text editor, rather than
the older x-terminal. Lucid similarly uses an entirely new
Control Panel that makes it easier to customize and
configure Lucid to one's liking. Speaking of customizing
Lucid, that is why it is so much fun. 5.2.8 includes more
wallpapers and themes than any previous Lucid.
Lucid Puppy 5.2.8 has also received a thorough going-over under the hood. In addition to the faster libraries, there is new and updated firmware and drivers for many devices, courtesy of forum member tempestuous. Further, the hardware detection and configuration routines have been extensively tested and enhanced by forum member rerwin--who has tested the routines for over 3 months since prior to the release of Lucid 5.2.5. Finally, the overall look and feel, the friendly and fun stuff, has been influenced by experiments by forum member pemasu who has created a series of very popular Puppies since the release of 5.2.5. In his honor, Lucid 5.2.8 is nicknamed Finlandia.
Lucid 5.25 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. It now has JWM 500, up from 493.
Gnumeric 1.10.13 (up from 1.10.12 in 5.2) is a necessity because our very own yarddog had posted a bug to Gnumeric that is corrected in 1.0.13. Lucid 5.2.1 uses the Woof of FEB 28 replacing the Woof of NOV 28 for 3 months of progress in Woof development.
The first thing up is a very tidy Quickset dialog to accept or change video resolution, timezone, language/locale and keyboard. Next up could be the Browser Installer--which of the major browsers would you like to use--even more than one, with Browser-Default allowing you to change which one you use as the default. And then there’s Quickpet--with as much good stuff as a Swiss Army Knife. There are three tabs worth of great Linux programs that you can install with a single-click, all tested and configured for Lucid Puppy. There’s another tab to install larger programs in the Puppy sfs format, also with a single-click of course. Still in Quickpet, there is a Drivers tab that will analyze your system and recommend which video driver you should use to get the best video--and click to install it. Finally in Quickpet is LupuNews, with one-click instant updates, recommended Tweaks (with links), and the latest News.
Quickpet will also open the Puppy
Package Manager which is chock full of even more
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
alternate--and of course a WM Switcher to make it all
Puppy is still a compact
and lean, but with all of these resources there
is nothing it
cannot do. We call it a full-featured
