Download from here:
If you are on dialup and already have downloaded Wary 096, good news as the .delta files are only 6.4MB and 1.3MB. If you have Wary 094, you can download the .delta files to upgrade to 096, then to 098.
The last-minute fixes in the unofficial 097 have been important, and 098 is looking good!

Pizzasgood's superb Retrovol sound mixer and tray applet has been in our puppies for awhile now. Wary 096/097 has version 0.8.
Pizzasgood has fixed some bugs and solved the problem of the transparent background in the tray, and released version 0.10:
I have upgraded Wary to this version.

01micko has fixed a bug with the Video Upgrade Wizard, it now works.
Rerwin has supplied improved code in /etc/init.d/10alsa to wait until snd_* modules have loaded.
Thanks to Lobster for testing BaCon in 097. Vovchik supplied fixed .bac files for /usr/share/BaCon. I went through and fixed them all -- they had previously been incorrectly converted from HTML.

However, at the first boot, the modem module writes to the screen when one of the dialog windows is displaying, partly over-writing it. It is mostly a messy cosmetic problem.
I have done a quick hack to all three Agere modem sources, taking out some of the 'printk' statements.
The updated kernel PET used in Wary:
The hacked sources:

Forum member 'pemasu' reported that a symlink had to be created from /usr/bin/firefox to /opt/mozilla.org/bin/firefox to get it to work from the menu. Not so. When the package is installed, a message pops up asking to reboot before using Firefox, and on the reboot the paths get setup correctly.
However, that message was a yaf-splash message that disappears on mouse-over, and it is possible that it can go away before it is read. So, I have made it more prominent and requiring clicking a close-box to make it go away.
There was one thing "wrong" with the Firefox PET, the menu font was too small, so I fixed that, plus fixed some default web-page font choices. I also fixed the divergence to the Firefox home page at first start -- now it only brings up the Puppy home page.
I have re-uploaded the PET, 'firefox-3.6.9-w5.pet', note that I have left it as the same filename as before.

Geany is still not able to execute a script like it did in the old days. The solution is still simple.
Edit the file: /root/.config/geany.conf:
term_cmd=/usr/bin/xterm -e bash -c
Ok, done. I fixed the PET package for Wary, also fixed the template in Woof so it will be fixed for all future Woof-builds.

I have uploaded the PETs to the 'puppy-wary5' repository at ibiblio.org:
If you want to test these in Wary (and they might work in other puppies such as Lucid), they are not yet in the Puppy Package Manager, but you can download them individually and install them. Note that when you install with the PPM, dependencies are taken care of, but not when you just click on one PET to install it. So, for Gimp, be sure to install its two dependencies gegl and babl:
babl-0.1.2-w5.pet, gegl-0.1.2-w5.pet, gimp-2.7.1-w5.pet
Inkscape has no dependencies, just install:
Regarding compiling packages that need the gtkmm libraries (Inkscape, Gparted), ttuuxxx has bundled the *mm static libraries into one PET to make it easier for developers:
Gimp home: http://www.gimp.org/
Inkscape home: http://inkscape.org/

This will be in the 'devx' sfs in the next release of Wary, however you can get the PET here:
...of course, you still do need a 'devx' sfs, as BaCon is only a translator to C and needs the Gnu C compiler to create a binary executable.
The PET has documentation in /usr/share/BaCon

With the modem plugged in, power up, run PupDial and the first window reports that /dev/ttyAGS3 is found (my internal analog modem). That is not supposed to happen -- the usb serial interface is supposed to be discovered first.
The Vodafone modem is recognised by usb-modeswitch and successfully switched.
Pressing CHOOSE button in PupDial, it finds ttyUSB1 -- that is also a step back, as in 094 I was getting ttyUSB3 detected right off. Anyway, I clicked the "ttyUSB3" button and was able to connect.
I ran 'pmodemdiag' just after starting PupDial, will send the log tarball to rerwin.

The 'pcre' package was compiled in T2 with the '--enable-utf8' configure option, however I discovered sometime ago that the configure script in the 'glib' package reports that does not provide unicode support and refuses to use the pcre library.
Back when I first discovered that (early Quirky), I recompiled pcre with this extra option: '--enable-unicode-properties' and then glib was happy. Here is the complete configure:
# ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --build=i486-pc-linux-gnu --enable-utf8 --enable-unicode-properties
So, I have done this again. I have recompiled pcre 8.0 and uploaded the PETs:
I have recompiled glib 2.24.2:
# ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --build=i486-pc-linux-gnu --disable-selinux --disable-fam --with-pcre=system
Here are the PETs:
