Fotoxx upgraded

Fotoxx (previously called Fotox) upgraded to version 5.0.1. Among other things, it now has a full-screen slide-show mode. Fotoxx no longer has a PDF User Manual, it is now HTML and uses 'xdg-open' to find the most appropriate viewer.

Have created /usr/local/bin/xdg-open as a symlink to /usr/local/bin/defaulthandler.

4.1 status
Forgive me Barry, but I've pretty well lost track of 4.1's status and goals. It's pushing alpha 6 with no beta in sight. I understand you're working with Lobster on the SMP issue, but where otherwise does 4.1 development stand? Some reassurance would be helpful given your recent announcement.

I stated in my retirement announcement that I would stay on to least until 4.1-final is released. Maybe even 4.2.

It never occurred to me to doubt anything you've said, Barry. I guess I'm just looking for particulars as to what your goals are for 4.1. If I were to describe to someone what 4.1 will bring to Puppy, what would I say?

We trust you Barry. Trust will never be an issue. But a lot of people are invested in Puppy and might appreciate your two cents worth with respect to where you see 4.1 going. As to 4.2, I deeply hope you will be involved with it as well, even if as "just one of the guys".

I won't be the last to try and pick your brain re Puppy and things Linux. We respect your skills. experience and creativity to much.

Fast boot
4.1alpha5 already has the fast boot feature from UniPup. That is going to be one of the main things about 4.1.

Already has SMP kernel too.

Difficult situation with GRUB and mixed IDE/SATA. Nothing I can do about that.
