Software news in briefBy Chris Williams. Published: 22nd Dec 2004, 15:50:05 | Permalink | Printable
SSH, Ogg Vorbis, utilities and moreAs the year winds down, let's round up this month's news in brief.
In the name of Christmas, Liquid Silicon are offering a deal on RISC OS games bought before the end of the month: buy two games out of Abuse, Choas Engine, Heretic and Hexen, Quake and Tek and get the cheapest one half price.
Michael Borcherds has released a new version of Winclip, which allows RISC OS in VirtualRiscPC to access the Windows clipboard, and also tweaked graphic conversion utility EMF2Draw. Drobe writer Peter Naulls has uploaded a beta test port of the ogg vorbis tools, which includes an Ogg audio file encoder and player.
Theo Markettos has updated the telnet to SSH service SSHProxy to be 32bit compatible and also recompiled NettleSSH, originally developed by Justin Fletcher and the Nettle team, to be 32bit safe too - all available from Theo's website. Stefan Bellon has updated encryption tool GnuPG. UnitConv, Chris Johnson's SI and Imperial conversion utility, is up to version 2.20.
Matthew Price has added a user interface to Henrik Bjerregaard Pedersen's VNCserver and viewer, download the zipfile from here. Labelling application LaBella now includes CD label and envelopes. Erik Groenhuis has developed a command line BASIC tokeniser, for programmers in need of such a utility.
If you haven't yet voted in the Best of 2004 RISC OS awards, why not? Closing date is December 30th and you could win a copy of new game Desktop Repton Plus (which is shipping now, incidentally - review imminent).
And finally, it appears the bottom has fallen out of the A500 auction market (versus the 100 quid A5000 from earlier this month).

Star Fighter 3000: The Next Generation review
Star Fighter 3000: The Next Generation was born from the 3D0 version of the original SF3K that was ported back to RISC OS and this year freed from programmers' hard discs for the platform to enjoy, writes Andrew Weston. In this review Andrew weighs up much-improved graphics and sound against playability and stability.
