StrongEDFred Graute has released another new version of StrongED, a general purpose and very powerful, yet easy to use text editor.

The software, which is an ideal replacement for the vastly less-featured Edit that has been supplied with all RISC OS computers since the days of Acorn, can load any type of file, and be configured to recognise certain types and behave in particular ways as a result. Continue reading »

Fred Graute has released a new version of ToggleBD, a utility to raise the desktop backdrop to the front so that objects pinned to it are more easily accessible than by minimising windows and/or moving them around in order to find that pinned item.

Using its iconbar icon, or a configurable hot-key combination, the backdrop can be both raised and lowered, so once you’ve found and used that pinned item, it’s quick and easy to return to your original task.

Well, actually, it’s optional – and other colours are available.

MiniTimeThe latest version of MiniTime has just been released by Fred Graute.

Can now bring you back to the future. Or the past. It depends where you start.

MiniTimeFred Graute has released a new version of MiniTime, bringing it up to version 1.08. The application displays the current date and/or time in a small window or icon, so that it is readily visible, yet unobtrusive at the same time – it doesn’t get in the way with the computer’s general, day to day use.

Oops, sorry, I meant released under a three clause licence. Silly me.

Fred Graute has released a new version of StrongHelp with some changes not only to the software, but also to the licence under which it is available – now the three-clause BSD licence.

The software is designed to be a simple hypertext system, and considering its original release was at least twenty four years ago it has certainly proven the test of time, and remains a popular method of distributing manuals with RISC OS software. Continue reading »
