Precise Puppy 5.6

May 21, 2013 — BarryK
It's out! Our latest and greatest Puppy

A brief introduction:

Relative to Precise Puppy 5.5, this latest pup brings some exciting new features, including a new Xorg Video Wizard (with forced-reboot recovery mechanism), new non-PAE 3.2.44 kernel with lots of analog modem drivers (making this an excellent pup for those still on dialup Internet), many more applications internationalized, many applications upgraded, lots of bug fixes, and so on! Plus, a huge number of fixes and improvements at the infrastructure/system level. In all, a great new edition of the Precise series.
