I don't care for meebo but a link might be nice to add unless you know of a real lightweight multi-client IM. Overall a nice selection - OpenSong is really good for church musicians nowadays, the guys i showed it to were quite impressed (although they don't share my enthusiasm for Linux..)

I'm a die-hard OpenOffice fan -- and i'd like to see at a minimum something included to show .ppt files, if not produce them. However, if you are thinking of adding k3b, would it be faster/more lightweight to use KOffice? I have no idea of the dependencies involved....

And of course, what about dealing with those stoopid .pptx and .docx, etc.. files??? Anything coming down the pike for our rescue?

me again...

Just thinking (always a dangerous game for me to play) -- is LW2 going to be based on Puppy 4.0 or 4.1 (or other)? To my untrained eye, judging by the rc, 4.1 seems preferable over 4.0.

Also -- i understand why LW will include Firefox version 2.xx, at least until Mozilla or whoever fixes the problems running FF3 under Linux. That being said, perhaps it would be good to include a half-dozen themes and a few good extensions in the release. I say this because Mozilla's new website makes the user do a bit of digging to find the appropriate version 2 addons; it might be a nice touch to already have added some different themes and have a few choice extensions all set for users to install -- you know, several themes already loaded, plus on the first-time use of FF be presented an option to enable or not enable whatever extensions are included, such as adblock, filterset G updater, ProCon, Greasemonkey, whatever.

Anyway -- you are doing a LOT for Puppy all-around, not just LW...thank you! Just don't burn your candle at both ends. Wink

I like your ideas, I usually included firefox extensions and have a default theme when I make a release, The thing is that I've been working on "FirePup" and that might just be the best Firefox to use, Plus I Can theme it up.
I have been building everything on puppy 4.0, but I've been waiting around for a final 4.1 to be released. That to me would make the best base, due to all the upgrades over 4.0
Meanwhile I might like to see if I upgrade Firefox 2.0, because it has built in spellcheck, But first I might try to get it going on 1.5. Or I might just stick with 2.17 so many Firefox options these days Smile

Thanks for your work on getting Bible programs working. I have been looking for Bible software for puppy.

Living Water is a very well constructed puplet. I admire the work and thought that ttuuxxx put into it. I still boot it up just to examine how it is constructed. I'd say that ttuuxxx is a true master whom many here (especially myself) could learn from. I can only hope that when I get to the point of an actually release candidate for Concordia, it will be half as good as what ttuuxxx has done with Living Water.

Thanks for the kind words, I'll give you a hand, if you need one along the way, It would be my pleasure Smile

Do you have any updates as to when the next Living water will be released? I was looking on the churchpup thread (awesome puppy) and was under the impression that it was already out there but it wasn't mentioned (that I noticed) on your web site. Thanks.

Hi guys I've been working heavenly behind 4.2, I like where its going. Butttttttttt I've been spending so much time on gnome and kde while the versions advance so quickly, Take a look at Slackware for example usually they release an update every 6 months or so and a new release number every year plus. So what I've been debating while helping is maybe going it alone like graphpup has done, puppy has came to the point now where the latest kernel suites almost all the little laptops etc.
I would like to include a default compiler etc. It would add a bit of bloat, maybe 40-50MB but it would make the OS so much better.

Boy, there's a good question! Inasmuch as Barry has "retired" and Puppy is falling to the community, one could say it's time for you to branch out and go it alone -- after all, nobody knows how long Puppy will keep going. On the other hand, you are an important part of the Puppy community and i for one would hate to see you go. Or were you thinking of both splitting off LW AND staying involved with Puppy development? That might be biting off more than you wanna chew, idk.

Curious if you have the stats on how many downloads of LW/FH you've had? That may help you answer your question...

BTW, i like the compiler idea. I've only needed to compile a few times, but i never could figure it out and had to substitute or do without.

Sorry if you've already said this, but does it look like LXDE is in at this stage?

BTW, there is a program in portableapps that uses sword. I wonder if it could be integrated? But I'm probably the only person that would appreciate such a feature.

.ppt's are probably fairly important for church users if they are ever going to use them in a church. If you are feeling adventurous, you might also include wine and openlp. http://www.openlp.org/

Did you try OpenSong? It's available for Puppy and i forget, it's either in the alpha of the next LW or ChurchPup Concordia. It generates not only presentations but also lyric sheets with transposable chords for the instrumentalists, very handy.

No, I haven't tried it. Will get a release.

OpenLP had some features like CCLI integration that some churches might like. Then again, if there's a native alternative, that should be used.
