It's been over a week since Barry Kauler announced his retirement (again) and the project's future is now very unclear. Saying Woof and Puppy are now in "maintenance mode," where essential fixes are made, Kauler stated no new features or releases will be planned. Instead, he'd like to develop for the Ubuntu phone.
In a blog post September 20, Kauler said, "I started the Puppy Linux project in 2003, so I have been at it for ten years. Enough, it is finally time to retire." His blog has been almost silent in recent months and speculation of Puppy's demise was already being whispered around water dishes.
