Actually drobe *do* list software updates (their Software Summary type articles) that appear from time to time. If drobe simply reprinted *every* software vendors releases verbatim drobe would make for rather dull reading. I'd expect to see *some* comment on Andrew's release (R-Comp aren't exactly a "nobody" on the RISC OS scene) - that having been said whether it warrants a full page (like this one) is an editorial decission.

Still it makes you wonder why an alledgely "snooty" remark on one site gets a whole page on Drobe - just because it contains an arguably negative reference to drobe. A little less navel gazing is called for guys, ye do a good job - but responding to every remark like that creates a "hostage to fortune" - now any vendor intent on getting publicity on drobe will just rub Drobe's corporate noses in it on some other site first and be guaranteed a full page here.....
