To upgrade jwm in this great old classic pup I installed the following
jwm 2-2.0.1-pb-3-pup4
jwmconfig2-20090207 from puppy linux 4 repo
here: http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-4/
and installed (A must) libpng 1.2.34, and curl-7.19.4-pup4 from the same repo, libjpeg-7 from the Wary repos here Link: http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/pet_packages-wary5/libjpeg-7-w5c.pet and restart jwm and enjoy new themes etc.

Only downside seems to be no volume control in jwm panel. I fixed this by editing my jwm tray by copying and pasting appropriate line from this thread (Look down page on this thread below to find sample vanilla jwmrctray file.
Link: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/puppy-71/taskbar-disappeared-838360/

the line that mentions mini-volume.tcl into my jwmrc-tray file and restart jwm.

It has been noticed that exit to prompt no longer works please use ctrl-Alt-Backspace

Recommend trying on a non-production machine first
