The Pupeee Linux developers have released version 4.2 of their Asus Eee PC optimised open source netbook distribution. Version 4.2 of Pupeee is based on Puppy Linux, which was recently updated. The focus of Pupeee is speed, ease of use and Eee PC compatability.

Pupeee can run as a LiveUSB (without saving the settings) or be installed directly to the hard drive or solid state disk. The function (Fn) keys on Eee PC's are supported, so users can easily adjust screen brightness and volume settings. The release includes updates for Madwifi, the Intel-hda sound patch, the Hotkeys-patch and the EeePC ACPI.

More details about the release can be found in the Puppy Linux forums. Pupeee 4.2 is available to direct download as an ISO image.
