RiscCAD demo availableBy Chris Williams. Published: 4th Mar 2005, 12:12:54 | Permalink | Printable
Perfect time to lay out that new kitchenA free downloadable demo of RiscCAD is now available from author David Buck's website.
David told us: "The save, print and plot functions have been disabled. The demo has all the additional features added to Release 8e and 8f - this is the upgrade version supplied with the Pattern Pack."
The zip also contains various example designs to play with. Given that engineering software is notoriously painfully to use, user interface wise, the demo should appeal to anyone concerned about RiscCAD's learning curve, and also how it compares to modern software. RiscCAD was returned to its author from its previous publisher last November, and in January, was re-released with updates and a hefty price drop.

New developer sought for website gallery app
Coder John Williams said he will make his shareware Pic_Index software freely available if no one else is interested in taking over development within the next fortnight. He said: "If anyone is seriously interested in developing it further, please contact me. This would be subject to continuing to support the existing user base (including me) for an agreed period, and to actually having concrete ideas for further development." John said he hadn't worked on the BASIC program in years and its website domain was due to be renewed, which promoted this month's action.
