Pburn, Pmusic, Psip updated

August 12, 2008 — BarryK
These are Puppy in-house projects...

Pburn, CD/DVD burner app., upgraded to 1.9.8.

Pmusic audio player, upgraded to 0.2.0.

Psip VOIP + IM client, upgraded to 0.12.

Reckon I'll have a cup of coffee tonight and work late, try and knock this pup into shape and get alpha6 out. Tomorrow I'm going to my Dad's place to test Puppy on his PCs. One of his laptops (Thinkpad) has a Lucent modem and I want to find out what is going on with the Martian driver -- rerwin has reported some problems with it, that seem to be related to the kernel.

Mut has a showstopper bug, that Jesse is working on.

I'll plough through all the remaining bug reports for alpha5, maybe even fix some of them.

Barry fyi- I cannot launch a java application from an icon on the desktop. Also my Scottrade stock ticker java applet goes poof when it tries to launch. Been a puppylinux user of 4.0, 403, 405

"txxpup and Barry, I've been able to run Moneydance without problems in 4.0 and all alphas since. Key may be the fact that Moneydance employs the JRE 6 bundled with the program.

new drivers
Username: tempestuous
"Barry I just uploaded the sources for those new drivers, and posted details in the earlier " kernel" Blog thread. I'm cross-posting here because older threads tend to go unnoticed, and I knew you were close to finishing alpha6.
