Castle upgrades software listingsBy Chris Williams. Published: 5th Jun 2003, 18:27:12 | Permalink | Printable
Iyonix.com on the prowl, Microdigital.co.uk recallsCastle Technology have this afternoon announced an "extensive update" to their online compatibility list of software that is known to work on Castle's Iyonix computers.
Once they've sucessfully requested an account from Castle, third party application developers can now directly add details of their own compatible software to the list. As Castle's online database will be in heavy use by Iyonix users to check for compability, listing your software is probably a good way of promoting it.
Also, a new category has been added to the database. The new Modules section should list Iyonix compatible modules (the OS extension programs seen in
*modules), that are required ideally by more than one application.
In other news, we've noticed that Microdigital have pulled their weblog aka Newsdesk from their website. Their once regularly-ish updated Newsdesk was a communications lifeline bewteen the Omega developers and the RISC OS platform. The reason given for the content withdrawal is that the "page is not supported" - perhaps we need an Omega to read it. Thanks Google.
Finally, Iconbar have revived their news archive. The stats on their previous polls also make interesting reading too.
We've been informed by a software developer that for some time now, third party developers have been able to enter and edit details of their compatible software in Castle's list. According to our friend, "the main changes were the addition of the Module category and the addition of the 'Info' buttons next to each entry that give direct access to the summary information."
