Precise Puppy schedule

Vicmz expressed confusion over what is the "official" Precise Puppy.

Ok, I just looked through the Puppy Forum. I see the point of confusion, oldyeller's "Precise final" thread here:
And "Precise 5.3.0" thread here:

That's fine, but it doesn't mean they are "official", just puplets that someone is building.

There is a lot of interest in Precise Puppy. My "absence" while working on the ARM boards does not mean that Precise Puppy got neglected -- not really, as I made many improvements to Woof that apply to both ARM and x86 builds.

Anyway, as I am back working on the x86 Precise Puppy, I guess that I should make a definite statement about where I am going with this, and make a commitment.

The thread for my beta releases is here:

I am reading through this thread, currently at about page 17. When I release beta3, feedback will continue on the same thread.

So yeah, it is probably best to keep it going to RC and final release, so that will become the official Precise Puppy. Others can then bring out puplet variants as they desire.

At my current pace, not sure when beta3 will be out, maybe Sunday or Monday. Any suggestions, please post to my "beta" thread.
