May 5, 2010 - Quirky 1.00 is released, a 106-MB test platform for cutting-edge features of Puppy Linux.
Q1.00 is a multimedia special that should be able to play most multimedia formats. It also supports 3G modems.
The Linux kernel version is 188.8.131.52 and the default window manager is Openbox with Fbpanel (JWM is also available).
The builder of Q1.00 is "Woof", Barry Kauler's scripts for building a Puppy Linux distro from another distro's binary packages. However, Q1.00 is "home-grown" as Barry used binaries that he himself built from T2.
With Q1.00 released, a home-grown Woof-let, other Puppy Linux devs can use its tested features to deliver new Woof-lets from mainstream distros, benefitting the user with a wide array of packages while keeping the OS compact.
