Barry Kauler mengumumkan rilis Puppy Linux 5.2 edisi “Wary”, distribusi kecil, cepat dan sangat ringan yang didesain untuk komputer tua dan komputer dengan sumberdaya terbatas :
This is a massive upgrade relative to the 5.1.x series. All of the base packages were recompiled in T2. Certain choices were made in T2 with the plan of seamless upgrading from X.Org 7.3 to 7.6 – that is, the default Wary system has X.Org 7.3, but it is planned that Wary can be upgraded to X.Org 7.6 by installation of a single PET package, and all applications will work before and after. This required some very careful configuration. The idea is to ‘have our cake and eat it too’ – X.Org 7.3 for old hardware, easy upgrade to 7.6 for newer video hardware. The plan actually seems to be working. As usual, huge changes yet only a small version-number change. Many bug fixes, upgrades, new packages.
