DamnSmallLinux developing?


hi

Knows someone if DamnSmallLinux will be further developed?
The kernel and the last release are quite old...

Since the last version is from 2008 and Distrowatch lists this distribution as dormant I doubt that there is any developing.

Development has ceased since v4, basically. There was a huge falling-out between the development team and Mr. Shingledecker, and not much has happened since. The original goal of the project was to fit a self-contained and useful OS in 50MB. This being accomplished, further 'development' may, in a sense, be redundant anyway. Speaking strictly for myself, V3.1 works great on a AMD K6 machine that I have, and I really don't see the need to upgrade it to anything. Sure, it sucks for flash video (v7 is the highest it handles), but them's the breaks...
