Pupdial 2.0 is a polished version of the pupdial that has been part of puppy for a long time. The minor improvements are:
    - Modem testing and initialization string creation are faster.
    - Only one window displays at a time.
    - Message windows are generated consistently:
      Status/results in upper section
      Instructions in lower section
      "Probing" splash messages persistent until probe/test completion
This has been submitted to woofCE. Please report here anything about pupdial-2.0 the doesn't seem right, so that I might resolve it.

This has been tested in tahrpup, xenialpup and stretchpup. It also works in lucid but without the correct icons (which are not in lucid). I tested with a USB ethernet modem and an external serial modem.

Note that the text and "gettexting" of the messages has changed, necessitating review by translators to update the internationalization.

UPDATE 8/8/18:
Re-uploaded pupdial-2.0 after download #3, to add ensuring that the /dev/ppp node exists, so as to avoid a connection error. Puppies probably won't have that node. (I needed this for testing with Dpup-stretch.)

UPDATE 9/6/18:
Uploaded pupdial-2.1, to improve performance where modem-stats is not installed but microcom is used. It also adds modemdisconnect and a link to it for access by rc.shutdown.

Please replace pupdial-2.0 with the version I uploaded after download #3. It prevents a connection surprise when testing on a new installation. See my update comment, above.
