The latest usr_devx.sfs has the kernel 2.4.29 headers in it. As you say, that's all that many apps need to compile.


Barry, any chance you'll be uploading this any time soon?

Barry,

If you are planning to move to the proposed (doopdoop) iceWM improved look and feel, plus having the ability to compile from within Puppy, plus all the other goodies, I really think that the next version of puppy should reflect it.

Those two items alone (ability to compile + new look and feel) separate the next release from the previous versions.

One of the standard ways packages and apps versions are numbered is

<major>.<minor>.<fix>.<build>

<major> Major version usually not fully backwards compatible
<minor> Substantial new features but still backwards compatible.
<fix> Small number of new features, usually resolving anoyances and bugs.
<build> Just meaningfull during development to differentiate test versions.

What rules are you following to number puppy's versions?

I'm actually thorn between suggesting 2.0.0 or 1.1.0

I really think that 1.0.5 does not make justice to the actual relevance of the release. I know that you that look at puppy every day may not realize how much it has grown.
