I am excited to announce the release of Puppy Linux Slacko 6.3.2. It is available in 32 bit and 64 bit versions.
This might be called a bugfix release to Slacko 6.3.0 but it is so much more than that!
This is the first ever official puppy to support UEFI booting for both for 32 and 64 bit versions and the same ISO image will boot legacy BIOS PCs...
I have released an ISO image as a beta for the next iteration of slacko. It is mainly a bugfix for 6.3.0 but it is also intended to support UEFI in line with the discussion here.For more information visit the forum page.
For other puppy builders, preliminary support has been added to woof-CE for UEFI as of commit ba2a9b8....
Booting UEFI difficult? Nah. Not at all. Let's do this for Slacko 6.3 (32-bit).
1. Make sure you have UEFI machine. Machines that comes with Win8 or recent usually okay.
2. Get a blank flash drive. Format it as FAT32.
3. Grab a copy of Slacko 6.3 ISO
4. Grab a copy of Grub2 UEFI bootloader, from here: http://distro.ibiblio.org/fatdog/packages/700/g...
Improve radio detection by allowing several urls for each radio stations in the index file. This is backward compatible with the old format.
A new dead simple podcast frontend is included by default. The heavily improved podcast managing introduced in pMusic 5.2 deserves its own gui. The good old PPG (Puppy Podcast Grabber) is now old enough to retire.
Play tracks other places than in the playqueue. pMusic is still a playqueue-oriented player. This is a function meant to check out tracks before adding them to the queue rather than an alternative play-source.
Multiple playqueues for even more flexible usage. This feature is optional, and turned on in the 'Playqueue' menu.
New export window - An attempt to clean up the complex export functionality, and to standardize the pMusic dialogs.
At last, the basic Visualization engine is included. Atm, the visualization filters are simple, but this might change in the future as ffmpeg-3 allows much more fun. pMusic 5.4 is still depending on ffmpeg 1.2.

Wow.. what a lot of work! And how much time has flown by since beta 3??? Anyway, we're getting close to release now. Heaps of bugs are fixed and improvements made.
