There's More to Love in Puppy Linux 5.2.5

Filed under
Linux

Launched on Saturday, version 5.2.5 of the flagship Lucid Puppy Linux distribution--also known as "Lupu"--improves upon the release from early this year with a raft of updates and new features, making it "the most leading-edge Lucid ever," in the project's own words.

Now included in the easy-to-use software, for example, is version 4.1.0 of the Bash shell, replacing the previous version's Bash 3. Version 4.03 of the Syslinux bootloader replaces Syslinux 3, while the window manager JWM 500 has replaced JWM 493. The included Gnumeric spreadsheet software, meanwhile, has been updated to version 1.10.13.

More themes are available in Lucid Puppy 5.2.5, and more programs are now available through the Puppy Package Manager. Also notable are improvements to the new release's sound capabilities.
