I don't know if anyone has suggested this already but could you include the version number in the Start menu, after the vertical ' Puppy '.

the files are in xpm format - I have asked John Murga to makes these allowable attachments so they can be uploaded - I have them for 1.0.4 and 1.0.5 and will zip them if anyone is interested . . .

How about storing the puppy version number in an environment variable also? Then it could be accessed by programs like torsmo, or displayed as part of the console prompt.

The version is stored in /etc/puppyversion, always has been.

So guys, real nice to have the "1.0.4" added to the menu image, but is it possible to automate it?
... i mean, in Unleashed, the "createpuppy" script can take the "blank" vertical Puppy image, add the version number to it.
... is that possible to do from a script?

A program that converts text to raster image would be needed ... that strikes a chord in my memory, but I can't recall where/what does that.
