New !RSS 1.14 out. And just when drobe.co.uk gets an RSS feedReleased yesterday was version 1.14 of Justin Fletcher's !RSS application, a handy desktop application that fetches and parses RDF Site Summary files from websites, presenting the user with an idea as to what's new or updated on the sites. News websites such as Slashdot and The Register provide RSS feeds that list their top headlines. Any site can use them to describe briefly what's changed and when, even online diary sites use them.
Version 1.14 features according to Justin..
- The layout of information displayed by !RSS is now a little more configurable, with various styles of presenting RSS items.
- Improved region checking when clicking on links.
- Site images are now supported through ImageFileRender, a RISC OS Select module. If you don't have Select then images are ignored.
"RSS is a little application which began life as a test or example of the use of the ParseXML module. Over the past few days it has grown up a little and gained a decent icon", Justin informed us in an email.
You'll be pleased to know that Drobe Launchpad finally has an RSS feed that we just recently finalised and made public at http://www.drobe.co.uk/rss.php. !RSS is pretty handy for fetching our feed to see what's new on our site and new to RISC OS.
RSS 1.14 and lots of other XML goodies

Prototype affordable Braille display in development
A low-cost computer-controlled Braille board has been prototyped by a RISC OS-using university student. Undergraduate Edward Rogers hopes to sell his completed units for as little as 200 quid each to schools and families to allow more blind children to continue learning Braille. And he said he wanted to launch his venture using RISC OS-powered kit before offering a package for other platforms.
