Nooby asks 'What is Spot'?
The current cutting edge version of Puppy is Lucid 'Findlandia' (= Puppy 526 a bug fixed Lucid 525)
Spot is the code name for Puppy 5.3 which uses binaries from Slackware along with Puppy magic

How does this fit in with other Puppy versions?
Wary is a conservative design for older hardware from Barry Kauler
http://bkhome.org/wary/
Quirky is a testing Puppy for new ideas from Barry Kauler
http://bkhome.org/quirky/

Dpup (Puppy + Debian) was designated as Puppy 6
and has recently been revived by Dejan555

Saluki from Jemimah - Puppy rewrite (currently awaiting a kernel base))
is likely to move up to Puppy 7 when it gets off the ground

Puppy 8 is likely to offer Intel, ARM and 64 bit versions
and likely have support for tablet, phone and touch features and possible Woof Android

What about the name?
At the moment Spot alpha 3 is released. It has a Slackware base and we call this an Spup, that means a Slackware (the 'S') based Pup
Spup Alpha 3 has been released
Spot is given the development name slacko or spup with numbers dependent on kernel and version number
Spot uses both Puppy scripts and programs using the Woof or woofy development system to create a Puppy
