CLib release fixes Fireworks, Pipedream problem

SharedCLibrary up to 5.47

32bit motifIn December last year, users of Pipedream and Fireworks were warned of a problem with Castle's SharedCLibrary (CLib) that interfered with the packages' INT() function. The bug, described as serious at the time, apparently only arose for users of 26bit RISC OSes with CLib 5.46 loaded. It was unknown at the time if the same fault affected other software.

Now in response, Castle have released version 5.47 of their CLib module which reportedly corrects the problem. RISC OS Select user Rex Palmer, who first spotted the fault, confirmed today that the new version of CLib works with Pipedream and Fireworks.

What with this and the Iyonix Update Watcher popping up again at the weekend with some more new bits and bobs - you'd almost believe we had a living platform and a developing OS.

Given that they don't even charge for this stuff, what nice people they are at Castle ;-)

As was expected ... Castle looked into the oddity of the new Shared C Library and fixed it quickly.

Thanks Castle for your good work!
