Announcement from ROUGOL, 14th April, 2015. The next meeting of the RISC OS User Group Of London will be: Pluto Presented by Martin Avison, Avisoft Monday 20th April 2015, 7:45pm
Announcement from Martin Avison, 23rd April, 2014. An update to Pluto v3.11 is now available from www.avisoft.f9.co.uk. This includes some changes made by Rob Sprowson and myself.
A combination of two announcements from Martin Avison, 1st October and 16th November, 2013 An update to Pluto v3.10 is now available from my Pluto web page. This includes some changes made by Rob Sprowson and myself, and my StrongHelp manual is now integrated. The changes from v3.08 to v3.09 are:
Sent messages no longer travel through time. Rob Sprowson, aka Sprow, has fixed a couple of minor niggles with Pluto, Jonathan Duddington’s popular email and news client, originally released in 1997 as a commercial product, and since made open source. In early July, Sprow addressed a bug which, for some people, caused the time to be displayed an hour ahead when looking at a sent message. About a month later, he fixed another bug whereby dropping a text file with DOS line-endings
Pluto still classified as an application, and not a dwarf application. Pluto, a popular news and email client, and speech synthesizer eSpeak, both originally developed by Jonathan Duddington, have been updated for ARMv7 compatibility – and can therefore now be used on modern RISC OS systems based around the BeagleBoard and PandaBoard, as well as the Raspberry Pi.
Oh, and something about TextEase version 6, as well. Elesar Ltd‘s Rob Sprowson will be visiting the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club (WROCC) on Wednesday, 7th December, to deliver a talk ostensibly on the subject of speech. Well, speech synthesis to be precise.
A roundup of 2021 news and releases not already covered on RISCOSitory With 2021 now behind us, the time has come for one final round up of news that hasn’t already found its way onto onto these pages – although this time, in fact, it’s the only round up of such news for 2021; for 2020, a snippets post appeared half way through the year and then another just after the year ended – but no earlier post has been compiled for 2021.
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.
Originally scheduled for their July meeting, which was cancelled due to circumstances outside of the group’s control1, Martin Avison will be the guest speaker for the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club (WROCC) in August.
A final round up of 2020 news that hasn’t found its way to RISCOSitory before I was aiming to get this final round up of news posted on the last day of 2020, but as ever other things got in the way, so what was intended as the last post of 2020 has become the first post of 2021. Still, never mind, better late than never – which should probably be the official motto here in the RISCOSitory bunker!
