Now that hopefully all of the Puppy 'team' are proud RasPi owners and the alpha 3 release is looking really good, I am hoping that we won't have to wait until the end of the year for a more mature version to evolve.lobster wrote:DIY versions will start to mature in June 2012
eg. Puppi Arch
The first alpha releases will be available July/August 2012
Mark (Antiloquax) is expecting his real Rpi hardware any day now and has a Qemu Puppi Arch that can be transitioned . . .
For Christmas/Holidays/Dec 2012 we will have had sufficient time to code, woof2 build, test in the kennels. shrink and optimise programs.
When Puppy comes to the party, it will turn the Raspberry Pi into a viable computer. Debian and Arch have created a great bootstrapping environment.
Puppy will offer support and simple documentation - easy enough for kids, penguin noobs, silver surfers, programming hackers from other dimensions and those on a fast track to their own projects.
We have no time requirement. The process will be ongoing.
Learn by doing. We have a minimalist core and a commitment to efficiency.
We are the DorG
Resistence is Futile
PS. We will be cuter, more fun and strangely addictive . . .
In the meantime, are you able to give us any encouraging news about any forthcoming releases, such as one based on 'Wheezy' for example, as I am sure I saw mentioned in one of the 'official' Puppy forums... where the date of 18th July (i.e. tomorrow) comes to mind for some reason?
