Changelog related to its predecessor released Dec 2013:
    Updated profiles (faster and more fun without decreasing security levels)
    Latest Chrome browser (v34 with Flash plugin v13)
    Latest Office packages (Softmaker FreeOffice and LibreOffice)
    Latest Java runtime (jre-1.7u55-i586)
    Mesa 9.2.0 for Intel video hardware
    Media Transfer Protocol supported for MTP-capable but not auto-recognized devices

PostPosted: Mon 28 Apr 2014, 13:16    Post subject: Mesa 9.2 in Puli 3.8.3 bark 4  

I just received an email asking for links to see the advantage of Mesa 9.2.0.

FYI: In spite of glxgears works well in other puppies where Mesa 8.0.4 is installed, 3D models can not be viewed thru the browser.

This is why Puli has 9.2 (for Intel hardware).

See how 3D works, for example at

Have fun!

Dear All,

Puli 3.8.3 bark 5rc uploaded

See detailed description at the top of the first page.

Changelog related to its predecessor released Apr 2014:
    * Smaller footprint (in memory and on the USB pendrive)
    * One-click Smart Install feature to upgrade or even downgrade Chrome browser (this is unique in Puli compared to other Linux, Windows, etc).
    * New Office packages (Softmaker FreeOffice 690, AbiWord 3.0)
    * Smart sfs handling (easy referencing, amount of sfs files is limited only by memory, their media remain unmountable)
    * Improved file associations
    * Latest Links2 browser (v2.8, with nice https and multimedia capabilities)
    * Updated sfs collection, (e.g. FileZilla3.9, TeamViewer9, Java runtime 1.8u5 with clickable jar files, IrfanView-capable wine, etc.)
    * Minor bugfixes

Have fun!

Regards,
gjuhasz

This is the time


Yeah, thanks to Microsoft, this (was) the best time to refactor Puli.
Now, Skype is available as an auto-loadable sfs. Runs either by root (with sound) or by spot (in silent mode)
Re-tested, uploaded again to www.smokey01.com/gjuhasz with the same 'bark5' name.

Subject description: Linux bugs are reported
 

Dear Puli users,

Some bugs were discovered in the last few weeks that may affect your daily work with Linux.
Please note that Puli can defend most of them due to its nature. Please ensure that the boot device (pendrive) is removed from the USB slot as soon as Puli recommends that. Also, consider using the Riforous or Crazy profiles while booting Puli on an unknown machine or visit suspicious websites.

I will patch Puli as soon as the official fix(es) arrive.

Have fun!

Regards,

gjuhasz

PostPosted: Fri 26 Sep 2014, 18:46    Post subject: Bash bug patch for Puli
Subject description: Fixed both CVE-2014-6271 and CVE-2014-7169
 

Dear Puli users,

The patch for the newly discovered bash bug

Bash Code Injection Vulnerability via Specially Crafted Environment Variables (CVE-2014-6271, CVE-2014-7169)

is available for Puli at

www.smokey01.com/gjuhasz/Puli_bark5_final_Aug2014

Download the patch folder to your USB boot device then boot Puli normally. That's all.

Bash upgraded to 4.2.25(1)-i686.

Verify the fix based on this article:

https://access.redhat.com/articles/1200223


Have fun!

In the meantime, some new vulnerabilities were detected, thus I updated the patch accordingly. Apply as described in the previous post.

A complete install package is downloadable either as

www.smokey01.com/gjuhasz/sfs/bash-4.3.29-1.pet

or as

www.smokey01.com/gjuhasz/sfs/bash-3.0.21-i486.pet

See the test result attached.

Have fun!

PostPosted: Thu 16 Oct 2014, 05:19    Post subject: Poodle muzzled
Subject description: Newly discovered vulnerability fixed in Puli.
 

In the meantime, the Poodle vulnerability was detected, thus I patched Puli again.

To apply, visit

www.smokey01.com/gjuhasz/Puli_bark5_final_Aug2014

Download the patch folder to your USB boot device (or merge your existing patch folder with the downloaded files). Then boot Puli normally any time.

Test the effectiveness of the patch at:

https://zmap.io/sslv3/

Note that this fix provides a cure only for your (client) browser. You may test your favorite servers at

https://www.tinfoilsecurity.com/poodle

to know whether they have patched their services, too.

(The Links 2 browser is not affected because Poodle uses javascript.

Open http://javatester.org/javascript.html in Links2 to verify.)

Have fun!

Subject description: Another Linux vulnerability fixed in Puli
 

In the meantime, new vulnerability (CVE-2014-4877) was detected, thus I patched Puli again.

To apply, visit

www.smokey01.com/gjuhasz/Puli_bark5_final_Aug2014

Download the patch folder to your USB boot device (or merge your existing patch folder with the downloaded files). Then boot Puli normally any time.

I uploaded a couple of pet packages that have backported the CVE-2014-4877 patch to

www.smokey01.com/gjuhasz/sfs

folder such as:

wget_1.13-1_precise_i386.pet for Upup Precise v3.8.3.1,
wget_1.15-1_trusty_i386 for tahrpup 6.0 CE


Have fun!

PostPosted: Mon 03 Nov 2014, 20:22    Post subject: Update notification (or auto-update?) in Puli  

Hm.

There is an interesting discussion here:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=96210

I am wondering if I introduce update notifications (or even automatic updates, both based on user settings) in Puli because Puli is prepared for this by design.

Why not?

I do not suspend uploading Puli bark 6, of course. The auto-update feature will be tested by itself Very Happy . Soon.


Have fun!
