ROS in X Windows continuesThomas Leonard has announced the release of ROX-Filer 2.1.3, the RISC OS-esque filer for Linux and other Unix-compatible OSes. Features new to 2.1.3, described as a developer release but still "quite stable", include improved Xinerama support, a 'brief' option for copy and move action windows and other improvements and bug fixes.
ROX-Filer's user interface is "based on the RISC OS filer, and it supports similar concepts, such as application directories, drag-and-drop saving and popup menus" and provides an equivalent to the RISC OS pinboard and iconbar. You can use ROX-Filer with your choice of existing X Windows desktops, or with the ROX desktop.

NetSurf 2.0 release pencilled for April 2009
The team behind the open source browser for RISC OS, Linux, AmigaOS, BeOS and other platforms start aiming for a version 2.0 release of NetSurf in time for next year's Wakefield RISC OS show. The top priority will be bug fixing and no new features will be added after mid_February to allow the programmers time to thoroughly test the software prior to the unveiling of NS 2.0.
