New toolbar, Tracer Pro, games and moreVersion 2.01 of Xample's Tracer Pro, which contains "some very small fixes, based on user feedback", is now available. A demo version with the user manual in HTML format is also available for download.
Stewart Brookes has released a handy StrongED toolbar. "In response to overwhelming demand, StrongED now benefits from a buttonbar make-over (before and after screenshots available on request)," mused Stewart. His chuckle worthy announcement is too long to quote without spoiling the gags, so if you want a giggle, it's all here. Although uploaded a while ago, it's worth pointing out that Jeffrey Doggett has published a number of interesting goodies online including a Doom port and an image filesystem for Doom level files.
Neil White informs us that he has updated his ConveySDL game and uploaded a couple of recently ported SDL games. Also, New Breed Software now acknowledges RISC OS amongst its list of supported operating systems. John-Mark Bell has updated TTF2f, his TTF and FreeType 2 font converter. Also, gallery utility WebGen and web favourites tool Bookmaker have enjoyed tweaks and updates.

The small ISP says it can re-program an Acorn STB's smartcard to allow it to connect to the Internet via Orpheus. Mark Stephens has agreed to act as the UK contact for the Unix Porting Project. The UPP's Peter Naulls is due to leave the lazy plains of Cambridge for software engineering in sweltering California.
Finally, the South East show is starting to take shape with a list of exhibitors and a floor plan. Buried in the event's image map monster of a website is the amusing suggestion that we might see an Iyonix 2 from Castle - always an interesting tactic to draw punters to a show.
