If you were using 4.69f9, you should probably upgrade… to 4.69f9.

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 »

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 »

The RISC OS Awards poll for 2016 was brought to a close on 29th February. As before, the results were processed and counted on a RISC OS computer (using a home-brewed program to turn the votes into a file for each category, ready to be loaded into Fireworkz), and initially announced on the @RISCOSitory Twitter feed. Those results are now online on the RISC OS Awards website and the various winners have been notified – where possible – by email. 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 »

Originally developed by Guttorm Vik in the late 1990s as part of his editor project – which today we all know and love (Zap users excepted) as StrongED – StrongMen can display a hierarchical menu structure based on the contents of a text file. The menu entries can be used to run applications, launch URLs in the default web browser, provide a list of open files, and more.

Fred Graute, the application’s current maintainer, has just released version 1.27, which offers full Choices support, three new commands for use in the text file that defines the menu structure, improved keyboard support, increased configuration options, and a means to add new applications, directories and files to the menu by dragging and dropping them onto StrongMen’s icon bar icon.
