News in brief

Links to interesting things from RISC OS Open, Organizer and more, including a RISC OS-themed podcast.

* RISC OS Open has taken over sales of the Acorn C/C++ development suite, known as the Norcroft compiler, which is used to build RISC OS. The ROOL team has also fixed a few bugs within the compiler tools. ROOL and RISCOS Ltd have also tentatively discussed how to tackle the 'sticky mess' that is the Toolbox module situation across the various versions of RISC OS available - although a ROOL spokesman said nothing had been decided yet.

* Life-management software Organizer 2.0 is now available to purchase over the internet. There is a special discount on offer until May 6.

* ArtWorks 2.9 is also available for ordering online following its Wakefield 2009 show launch.

* Stuart Tyrrell Developments has seen fit to publish details about its Vpod graphics card for RISC OS machines on its website.

* OSNews reviews recent RISC OS news in its latest podcast on alternative operating systems.

* Sine Nomine Software has produced a new suite of card games, called House of Cards, and updated its SuperDoku and DrawPrint software.

* And finally, the websites belonging to the late Paul Vigay were downed over the weekend by a technical fault but are now back up and running after some minor alarm from punters. Iconbar has offered to take over the hosting of Paul's portfolio of sites.

There are, in last part of the podcast, also some interesting thoughts about Firefox and Open Office on alternative operating systems. You use an alternative operating system for its special look and feel not the use a big program that works better on an other OS and doesn't use the special look and feel.
