EasyOS Dunfell-series 4.2.7 released

Feedback is welcome in the EasyOS section of the Puppy Forum:

I am intending the next release to be version 4.3, that will be announced on Distrowatch. The focus between now and then will be to track down bugs, and not add more features. I will probably bump Firefox and the kernel (to the latest 5.15.x).
