Puppy Linux 5.2 (Wary) optimized for older PCs
Oct. 17, 2011

The Puppy Linux project announced version 5.2 of the legacy-PC friendly "Wary" version of its small-footprint Linux distribution. Puppy Linux 5.2 ("Wary") features an upgrade path to Xorg 7.6, an updated PuppyPhone VoIP app, and a new PupCamera app for automatically detecting cameras, says the project.

Puppy Linux 5.2 is a "massive upgrade relative to the 5.1.x series," according to the Puppy project. All of its base packages were recompiled in the T2 System Development Environment open source build kit, says the project. The release features an SMP-optimized version of the Linux kernel and supports an upgraded path to Xorg 7.6.

In addition to the "Wary" release, which targets older PCs, the other major variant is the more forward-looking, Ubuntu-based Lucid Puppy ("Lupu"), which was released in its 5.2.8 version in August.
