After ~original 500 commits and ~45.000 lines of code changes in woof-CE since forking from Barry’s Fossil, the first official woof-CE-based puppy, Slacko-5.7, is out 😀

LOL. I agree completely about abiword, plus my interaction with some of the devs was not very pleasant. But, concerning Puppy and productivity, Slacko is so good that I am totally comfortable using it for production in teaching online university courses (I do use Libre Office).

On August 13, 2013, I hereby announce the release of Slacko Puppy Linux Version 5.6
This is the successor to Slacko 5.5 which was a very successful release. It is still based on the solid binary packages of Slackware 14.0. Coincidentally, 5.5 was released on March 5 this year, my Mum’s birthday. Today happens to be my son’s birthday! Happy birthday Jackson 8-).
There are some great new features including:
- experimental f2fs support
- ability to run internet programs as unprivileged user, Spot
- latest Firefox ESR 17.0.8
- latest Google Chrome in repo
- latest OpenOffice 4.0 and LibreOffice 4.1.0 in the SFS Manager
- latest Skype in the SFS Manager plus much more
- latest Nvidia and AMD/ATI graphics drivers for new and legacy cards
You can read more about it at the Slacko Home Page.
That’s right viewers. Development has been at a frenetic pace over the last couple of weeks that’s why it’s been a little quiet here.

PuppyLinuxWorld, what awesome screen casts!
I just watched a few of his screen casts and boy does he give me a good rap! Thanks mate! I do put plenty of time and effort into Slacko and am glad that is appreciated.
For anyone interested in Slacko, or Puppy for that matter, these series of videos are a great introduction to the features incorporated into each version and very well done.

This is what it looks like at first boot:
Slacko is soon to enter RC for the -next version. Haven’t decided on a number yet but it looks like I might go with 5.5. Depends on when BarryK releases his next. If I’m before I’ll go 5.4.4. Anyway, only a number.. 😀
