Time flies

Wow, it is now the third month of 2017. I haven't written anything for 3 months!

Well, things do get quiet during the holiday season; and as usual there are real-life issues that I need to take care of.

In between, things have happened. Fatdog64 is now featured on Distrowatch: http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=fatdog, yay!

Also, we recruited new member, "step" from the Puppy Linux forum. Before joining, step is known as maintainers of a few programs used in Puppy Linux, such as gtkmenuplus, findnrun, and others. Welcome step!

Though this blog is quiet, the Fatdog development is not. It continues nicely in the background with comfortable pace: bug fixes, minor feature updates, etc. Bug fixes isn't always possible, but package updates are visible here. Also checks out Fatdog contributed packages thread.

On the other news, LFS 8.0 has been released and while it is tempting to conclude that Fatdog 800 will follow suit soon, it won't happen.

While 710 (which is based on LFS 7.5/CLFS 3.0) is getting older, it has no major problem as its program and libraries continue to be updated. Fatdog 700/710 has acquired a large number of third party contributed software and we plan to keep them usable for a foreseeable time to come, by supporting 700-series until at least the end of the year. There may be one or two more releases (720? 721? or 730?) but they will use the same base.
