App can snap itself – no selfie stick required.

Snapper iconChris Johnson has released a new version of versatile screen-grab application Snapper (mirror).

Originally developed by David Pilling and now further developed by Chris, the application allows you to grab more (or, in fact, less) than just the whole screen. It can also capture an area inside a user-defined bounding box, or it can snap the window under the mouse pointer, with or without the window furniture – and with or without the mouse pointer.

Genetic mutation aborted and replaced with a newer, better, but otherwise identical version

If you haven’t yet voted, why not do so now?

The RISC OS Awards poll for 2017 has been open now since mid-March and will be coming to a close in a couple of weeks time. As such, now is an ideal time to take another look at some of the alternative nominations people have made if they felt something other than the options on offer deserve to win in any given category.

If you have yet to vote, please do so as soon as possible in order to your vote to be counted. Don’t forget that this is a good way for you to help highlight those things in the RISC OS world – both people, and products – that you think need to be highlighted.

A round-up of 2017 news that could have been reported on at the time if people had only sent it this way!

With 2017 now behind us, looking back over the RISCOSitory posts for the year might leave people thinking there has been very little activity in the RISC OS world – but in fact it merely means there have been very few posts on the site over the course of the year. This, sadly, is a reflection of the amount of news submitted to RISCOSitory by developers etc, more than anything else, with their news being posted elsewhere.

So, over the last few weeks, I’ve been scouring forums and feeds that have gone unread due to a lack of spare time, and where something has jumped out at me as something I might have reported on, I’ve rounded it up in the snippets post below. Continue reading »

If you have yet to vote, here are even more options for you – so why not get voting NOW?

RISC OS Awards logoThe RISC OS Awards 2016 voting form was put online on 18th December, and while the number of votes looked promising compared to last year the first time the alternative options were published, this is no longer the case.

When the second round of alternative options were posted last year, approximately seven weeks after the polls were opened, the voting form had been completed approximately 140 times. Today – also about seven weeks in – the tally stands at around 120.

So if you have yet to vote, why not do so now? Continue reading »

Now copes with setirps as well as sprites.

ConvImgs iconGiven that Chris Johnson has already added compatibility to Snapper for the new graphics format found on IGEPv5 and Titanium systems – not to mention the assistance he gave to David Pilling for Ovation Pro‘s support for the new formats – it’s probably not a huge surprise to hear that he has also updated ConvImgs (mirror), which is now at version 1.10.
