Precise Puppy 5.7 Beta 2, a distribution built from Ubuntu Precise Pangolin 12.04.2, alongside the binary DEB packages, providing full compatibility with Ubuntu and access to the vast Ubuntu package repository has been released.
Precise Puppy 5.6 Beta 2 is based on Linux kernel 3.2.44 and this latest iteration shows that the final version has gotten a little closer.
“Similar to the beta1, except some bugs fixed, and this time the two browsers are SeaMonkey 2.19 and Opera 2.16.”
“It weighs in at 200.4MB, as I included libgstreamer and libgstreamer-plugins DEBs, as Opera needs them. For the final, I will try and get it to about 199MB,” stated the developer on his blog.
Ubuntu 12.04.2 Precise Pangolin is a 5-year long-term supported release; therefore, Precise Puppy will be also supported for the amount of time.
