New SSH, 32bit StrongED and more. You know you love these software release roundupsUpdate: 32bit StrongED
Writing to the StrongED mailing list just today, developer Fred Graute announced the existance of a 32bit version of this editor's favourite text and source editor.
"I'm happy to announce that StrongED now runs on Iyonix", states Fred. "As soon as I've done some more testing I'll put up a version for people to test."
Of course, users of 26 bit systems will still need to test this new version in case the conversion to 32bit safe breaks any part of the program. More details as we learn of them.
SSH Beta 4
Alex Macfarlane Smith, winner of our drobe.co.uk C/C++ tools competition has been busy with SSH and released a beta 4 version of the client. This work is a precursor to full SSH support in Nettle. A major new feature in this release is support for inline commands (eg ssh user@host "ls -l" ) - great! It also attempts to make use of Theo Markettos' CryptRandom module for greater security.
Remane 1.3 (sic)
Only last week did we report on Jochen Leug's new Remane program at version 1.1 and now it's up to version 1.3. There's bugfixes, improved user interface, and interactive help now. Jochen's asking for feedback.
FilerHRun 1.21, WebMan 0.06
Philip Ludlam has responded to Kell Gatherer's request for 32bit versions of some his utilities . Check out Philip's page for updates.
Jon Ripley has compiled Inform 6.21, a text adventure game player, for 32bit users. Don't forget you'll need the 32bit SharedCLibrary module and stuff if you're on a 26 bit system.

Techie docs for mystery Acorn CAD workstation surface
Documentation for Acorn's 1988 prototype 'high end' technical publishing workstation have been scanned and published online by collector-of-old-kit Chris Why. The A680 was an advanced Archimedes-series machine that ran Acorn's Unix attempt, RISC iX. It was initially powered by a 25MHz ARM2 and had a 67MB hard disc with up to 8MB of RAM and a monochrome display.
