Puppy Linux version 4.3 released

Please note that the files have not yet fully propagated from ibiblio.org to the mirrors. For example, I just now checked 'nluug.nl' and it has an incomplete 'pup-430.iso' file. So, for now only download from ibiblio:


Announcement and release notes:


There are a selection of live-CD ISO files and support files to choose from. Please read this page before going to the download page:


Main download page, has links to ibiblio.org and download mirrors:

i saw that in the night
i was observing the ftp directory last night and saw the download in progress
I mean the size of iso was increasing :)

So, downloading now. Puppy becomes better each release
one question i have : does 4.3 support more than 3 sfs to download? ( i.e. more than 3 loops)

runnin' 4.3 frugal as usual
runs fine and seems faster than before
though too many calculators :)

Congratulations Barry and team!

This is outstanding. This is a Master Stroke, really. Your work has made Puppy one of the most useful tools in computing, and probably the fastest operating system there is.

Retro thanks...
THANK YOU!! For the first time i NEEDED the retro kernel for a former students' donated laptop. 4.3 came out JUST in time - she leaves in a few days. This will transform an old machine into a workhorse, and now it will be totally new. Thanks for continually remembering those who can't afford new machines. :hapy:
