Luci-263 is now posted in the first message of this thread. This is the 3rd development release.


Damnit! I've only just upgraded my fresh install of 260 to 262. Wink For the record, things seem to have gone smoothly so far. On 260 I noticed that it took a long time for the speaker icon on the icon bar to lose its cross.

There are times when I wish that you'd elaborate on your reasoning for certain things, and this is one of them. Bear in mind that when Lupu 526 is released many people will be upgrading their existing install and may not take kindly to having to create a new save for a minor point release.

What, specifically, is your reason for creating a new file and removing existing ones?

SFS-Load is great, now I no longer need a pupsavefile.

Playdayz, I have a few suggestions, all of them would take minimal space:

1) More modern looking mini-icons

2) ScOttman's Default-Programs-Chooser

3) Since dillo is the defaultbrowser, and dillo does not use flashplayer, why not remove flashplayer to save some megs?

4) Some bookmarks for dillo, especially a link to the murga-linux forum.

Further to my previous post, I've rebooted Luci 262 a couple of times and haven't noticed a repeat of the slow initialisation of sound I'd seem with Luci 260. In general, Luci 26x seems to be quicker than Lupu 525 although I haven't tested it extensively.

Luci-262 was flawed. There were some significant enhancements from rerwin and in installing them I misunderstood what Woof would do, and some were left out. There was also at least one file that should have been deleted and wasn't. Doing it wrong was worse than not doing it, of course. So, all in all I thought we should remove those problems from the testing environment by not updating luci-262. I mentioned the problem I think, but I did not explain the relation between the flawed 262 and the need to start 263 pfix=ram. Thanks.

Yes, Lucid 5.2.6 should be an easy upgrade to a Lucid 5.2.5 save file. However, just as with all the Lucids after the first one, I will say

That's also the reason 263 came so quick after 262. there was a week between 260 and 262.
