Puppy 5.0, code named "Lupu" and also referred to as "Lucid Puppy"

The Puppy Linux project has released version 5.0 of its fast, small-footprint Linux distro, based for the first time on Ubuntu. Puppy Linux 5.0 is built from Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx binary packages, and debuts a "Quickpet" application suite, choice of browsers, and a boot-to-desktop feature.

Code-named "Lup," or "Lucid Puppy," Puppy Linux 5.0 is "typically Puppy, lean and fast, friendly and fun," claims the project.

Other new features and major fixes that are available in Puppy Linux 5.0, as well as in most of the new Woof-based Puppy variants since Puppy 4.3, are said to include:
  • Improvements in the implementation of the Aufs layered filesystem
  • Improved automatic detection and configuration of analog and 3G modems
  • Samba printing issues resolved
  • Xorg Wizard enhanced with improved detection and configurability options
  • Improvements and bugfixes for bootup and shutdown scripts
  • Recovery after improper shutdown (such as power failure)
  • Single location for GPL licenses
  • Integrated handling of all network setup tools
  • New small GUI utilities
  • Improved PET package creation and package management tools
  • Some system utility scripts improved
  • System services can now be enabled or disabled
  • Improved hardware detection and localization in the initramfs
  • Woof hosted on Bones version management system
  • Major enhancements to the Woof build scripts, plus new Woof GUI and logo

Puppy Linux 5.1 released
13 Aug 2010

The brilliant new Puppy Linux 5.1, code-name "Lucid" as it is binary-compatible with Ubuntu Lucid Lynx packages, has been released.

Lucid Puppy 5.1 is a "full-featured compact distro." It's a Puppy, so it is fast, friendly, and fun, and it can also serve as one's main Linux desktop. Quickpet and Puppy Package Manager allow easy installation of many of the best Linux programs, tested and configured for Lucid Puppy. It is just as easy to choose your favorite browser and your language. And it all looks as good as it is, because the core Lucid team now includes an Art Director.

Lucid Puppy boots directly to an automatically configured graphical desktop, with the tools to personalize the desktop right at hand, and it even recommends which add-on video driver to use for high-performance graphics.

The main emphasis relative to Puppy 5.0 has been to improve the user interface, both to make it even more friendly and to enhance the visual appearance. Also many packages and tools (especially for video and printing) have been upgraded/improved, including synchronising with a recent release of the Woof Puppy-builder.
