Round up of commercial app updatesMessenger Pro
Version 4.12 of R-Comp's email and news client was released to users this weekend, and it includes a number of improvements. According to the change log, a bug "which caused intermittent deleting of files marked for deletion" has been fixed. Large address book lists are also handled better, selected text can be spoken by Speak, and there's plenty of other user interface and stability tweaks.
Hoping to tackle problems with previous releases, R-Comp have also issued version 2.11 of online chat client Grapevine to users. As well as addressing faults and bugs found by some punters, the new release also supports 7th Software's MultiDesk software. A few users have reported they are still having problems with sending files over MSN and setting their 'away' status.
Although the updates to Grapevine are released for free, R-Comp asked for voluntary donations to cover the development costs, or for punters to buy other R-Comp software.
R-Comp's Andrew Rawnsley said: "We'd like to take this opportunity to thank those who have already contributed to Grapevine's on-going development. Without the help of such people, we couldn't have produced 2.11, so they deserve a big thank you."
CJE Micros have published an update to the Impact database software online. Upgrading to version 3.29 from 3.27 and 3.28 is free, other users will have to cough up. The new version is A9home compatible and links the recently updated documentation with the application's user interface. A PDF copy of the manual is also included.
