Available from R-Comp at the London Show this weekend will be a new version of Fireworkz Pro, an integrated word processor, spreadsheet and database application. Version 2.20 includes support for the global clipboard, allowing the application to copy (or cut) and paste data to or from other applications. The software has also benefited from several bug fixes and minor improvements, along with major internal changes and restructuring, to pave the way for future modifications (and internationalisation).

The CD edition is priced at £39.00 with upgrades from v1 costing £20.00. Those who have purchased earlier v2 releases can upgrade for a fiver. The new version will also be available to purchase from !Store next week.

Fireworkz (and the file compatible Fireworkz for Windows) are now free to download from Gerald Fitton’s Abacus Training website, and are both now up to version 1.34/10. Updates to Fireworkz Pro, which remains commercial and is now sold by R-Comp, are sent out to users by email, and the latest version received at the RISCOSitory desk appears to be 1.34/9.
