April goodies

Since we're a portal, we thought it would be a good idea to present a quick list of links to software released recently for you to browse and download. Enjoy.

Look up abbreviations and acronyms. YMMV.

MP3 utilities
!ID3toCSV lists MP3 files in CSV format. !MP3test checks MP3s for errors and creates a CSV log. !CDrip uses shine to convert a directory of WAV audio files into MP3 files. !ID3toName renames MP3 files from their ID3 tags.

ROX-Filer 1.3.0
Implements the RISC OS filer on unix compatible systems, includes many other features too.

BookMaker is a hotlist and address book management tool that supports all major RISC OS browsers, most email clients and other internet tools.

JPEG utilities
!Jclean is a desktop front end for the Independent JPEG Group utilities 'jpegtran' and 'wrjpgcom'.
!Jigwas will combine up to 1000 JPEGs into a single JPEG in one go.

SmartOpenDir is an "intelligent directory opener" for RISC OS 3 and 4. It intercepts calls to open directories in filer windows and sets the display/sort options based on patterns in the directory name and/or number of files it contains etc.

Phew. Got an news? Send it our way.
