Announcement from Nick Roberts, 1st October, 2013

Version 2.16 of BookMaker is available for download.The integration of BookMaker with certain browsers is not perfect, and under certain conditions the browser can overwrite any changes to the saved hotlist made by BookMaker. This version of BookMaker detects the conditions under which saves can go wrong, and warns the user of the possibility.

BookMaker is an address book manager for most major RISCOS browsers, and several email, telnet and FTP clients. It is fully 26/32-bit neutral (i.e. will run on all versions of RISCOS from 3.1 onwards). It has been tested on VirtualRPC, Iyonix, ARMini, and Raspberry Pi.
