Ported to Windows and Linux, gets new programmerRISC OS database package S-Base appears to have made a sudden come back with a new beta version released this month. The software has gained a new programmer who has been working away on the project for five months.
Surprised punters received an email on Sunday that read: "If you have forgotten about S-Base, then we don't blame you - it has been a while."
According to the S-Base website, the new coder "ported S-Base to use the QT library, so that it runs on Linux and Windows, and potentially Mac OS. However, this port has not produced a perfect version.
"It is fine for command line stuff, but the GUI is a bit broken. A new command-line only version has been created. A large array of new features have been added, although documentation is scarce. [S-Base original author] Simon Glass continues to work on the software on and off".
The last release of S-Base was published in August 2001. It is a programmable, relational database that allows users to custom the data entry interface for each database, among other features.
