Congrats! Works pretty well so far, had tested the latest version uploaded on 3/14/19 on my Acer Chromebook C740. Added zRam swap to match the native Chrome OS setup, and works good too.

what will distinguish the new Puppy's rel. 8 and over from the precursors rel. 7, 6, and 5. New bottle for the same wine or really new wine?

The question is highly interesting for those already using BionicPup but a low release 7.9.4 etc because they did fat it immediately and don't want to repeat that job each new step of the evolution.

is an actualisations package for all intermediate releases available and what is with it use on a very fatten remaster version?

@oui:
Why don't you yourself go on a diet instead of harassing Puppyists about their
perceived fatness!!!

@Lobster:
For a minute, there, I thought you were the author of a Puppy-8. No, you're only the
trumpeter! Wink

@01micko:
It is totally unfair of you to leave out of that list josejp2424's excellent DPupBuster
-7.9.0.2. It would have been nice to offer the public a non-Ubuntu Pup for a change.
People will start thinking that PuppyLinux is a farm club for Ubuntu -- if they are not
thinking it already.

oui,

I guess you do not understand that a new Puppy version build is released for people to use and help bug fix.
The early versions are not release versions.
They are alpha, beta, interim, etc..... releases.
Bionicpup64 was first released as the alpha version 7.0.
Version 7.1, 7.4.3, 7.9.4, 7.9.7, 7.9.8 were all testing and bug fixing releases.
It developed and got bug fixed until the final release of 8.0
Bionicpup64 8.0 is the finished official release that should be stable and bug fixed.

The Quickpet>Info>Bionicpup updates may get a early testing version updated.
But probably will not provide all the changes or updates that are in version 8.0

The Bionicpup64 version 8.0 was compiled using a newer version of Woof-CE than the earlier versions.
It has all the Woof-CE latest improvements to core Puppy files and programs.
So, with Woof-CE changes, bug fixing, added and deleted stuff, improvements, etc... it is very different from the alpha 7.0 version.

Starting over with a fresh new install of Bionicpup64 8.0 is really the best option.
Unless some really big bug pops up.
Quickpet>Info>Bionicpup updates should keep it updated with any needed changes or updates.

If you did a remaster of any of these testing versions.
That is your version of Bionicpup64.
You know what you changed, added, deleted, etc....
You only know what could be bug fixed, improved, deleted, changed, etc......

I did begin with version 7.9.4 because of RSH (he did stay on that version, I myself did test 7.9.6...) and did fat it with a lot of stuff (size of puppy_bionicpup64_7.9.4.sfs is actually 475 MB Wink / iso 518 MB )

Later, I did rebuild that remaster on 7.9.8 because I don't have the devx from 7.9.4. After that, diverse important details from precedent remaster did not go any more (especially it did not remember the main setting keyboard any more... It is probably the most important setting for each user, but it stay as the main problem for non English people! Since 15 years!!! (*1 ) Embarassed

I have both but use only the 7.9.4 version running perfectly...

as no details if what to win with success changing a time more and 7.9.4 all that what I require from it, I thing

never disturb a running system

and stay reserved against the announced upgrade Wink ...

(*1 I don't have some exquisite keyboard layout: only US, but VARIANT INTernational and Puppy did never offer it although it could be the main proposal without damage for English guy's (they ignore it, nothing more Idea !). It is the variant used and documented with picture at inputking.com for the most European languages! Only that! Are English people really

racists? Chinese people (inputking is Chinese) are more open Idea

DPupBuster is a very different Puppy, a kind of new line requiring maximal comprehension Embarassed from Puppyist's!
