    From feedback@os2voice.org@1:3634/1000 to All on Sun Jul 16 13:11:17 2017

    ++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

    A followup to the DFSee 14.6 BETA anouncement:

    While there are still some features to be added relating to Linux and
    Mac OSX device management and screen colors, most other stuff is ready.

    - Creation of the DFSPUPPY bootable USB stick has been tested on Linux,
    OS/2 (actually ArcaOS), Windows-7 and Windows-10 and works quite well.

    - Mouse support has been extended to the Linux amd MAC versions, and
    has been enhanced with several new features that make life easier:

    - Switch between [Basic] and [Expert] by clicking the menubar indicator

    - Button1 DRAG in a selection-list (Browser) to mark a range of files

    - Button-3 click (usually scroll-wheel) to show context sensitive HELP

    - Ctrl-click to close a (HELP) text window or a dialog window

    - Ctrl-click on the commandline area to exit the program

    - Scroll text windows ans selection lists using the scroll-wheel

    Note: Still NO mouse support in the Linux console, only XTERM terminals

    - Streamlined creation of the bootable USB stick, now including automatic
    transfer of your registration code from the 'host' platform.

    - Automatic screen-redraw after resizing of the terminal Window (MAC/Linux)

    I am inviting all of you to participate in second round of BETA testing:

    - The features listed above
    - Creation of the bootable DFSPUPPY stick
    - Booting the stick on various PC hardware

    Please supply feedback on this list, if anny issues are found with the above.

    For some more info, and a few screenshots see:


    The stick creation has been tested by several people, and quite a
    few quirks on the different platforms have already been ironed out.
