Is anyone still working on 2.15CE?

I love this distro (using it now to write this post) but one thing I miss is a 'kill' button in the system menu. I just had Mozilla Seamonkey hang on me and it's just so much easier to kill with a menu item in the system menu like in 'normal' Puppy releases.

Even though Linux cannot stop faulty programs from hanging I've found the 'Kill' a foolproof way to kill a program (unlike Windows).

Try right clicking on Seamonkey in the taskbar/tray and see if a pop-up window/menu appears which includes the kill option. Works w/JWM - not sure about iceWM.

I'm using the alpha version so things may be slightly different in the final release of 215CE. On the left of the taskbar is a folder icon (marked "Quick Launch Menu" if you hover the mouse over it). Left click it and on "Kill Process" in the resulting drop-down (drop-up???) menu. Choose the process from the list and click on kill.
Hope this helps

Works but involves 5 mouse clicks total.

Tried this in final but found it more complicated than the above option.
