(Or the two or four pack, depending on which edition) A new version of TextEase is now available from Elesar Ltd. Originally from Softease and aimed at the award winning software consists of a suite of up to six applications, and is available from Elesar in either Home, Educational, or Professional editions – with the first containing two of the applications, the second a further two, and the last all six.
An updated version of TextEase is now available from Elesar Ltd, offering a double triplicate; one of minor bug fixes, and one of new features. Those three new features are:
That’ll be the sound of the user manual landing on your doormat Last year, Elesar Ltd managed to bring back TextEase Studio for RISC OS, a publishing suite that was first developed and published by SoftEase. The updated suite came with what was, at that point, an updated 72-page but still draft manual, supplied in electronic format.

ALso: The Midlands User Group now has a YouTube Channel – the RISC OS MUG Zone.

30th October, 2021, marked the return to physical shows in the UK, when the RISC OS User Group of London (ROUGOL) hosted their customary October event at the St Giles Hotel in Feltham – the RISC OS London Show. Understandably under the circumstances, there were fewer exhibitors than in previous years, as well as few visitors; it was a much quieter show than usual – but despite that, it was still an excellent day for finding out what’s happening in the RISC OS world. So what happened? What did we…
A new version of Retriever has been made available by its developer, Thomas Milius, which benefits from a number of new features. The software offers a method of locating documents based on search terms or other criteria, but does so by building up an initial cache of data about your files, with the specific information varying based on their type.
Well, point releases for four products – TextEase, CloudFS, Prophet, and the WiFi Hat Over the last few weeks there have updates to four of Elesar Ltd‘s products, all being ‘point’ releases. This generally means the least significant digit of a version number has been increased, usually indicating minor changes. A small change, however, isn’t necessarily an unimportant one – so these are the four items that have seen changes that you may wish to benefit from.
