There is one thing I dearly miss in all these comments ... not long ago a website named risc-os.net was set up as the try to offer a central resource where applications with their version infos etc. can be published and risc-os.net does a few things much better than the other like portals: 1. it checks if the links are valid (reachable and containing the odd data) and 2. allows to be updated by updating the info on your own site (html comments or xml files) so that updating is close to no work. Pity that risc-os.net is not reachable all the time though.

Adding a software version list on drobe is thus something I think is not needed at all - risc-os.net is there and does offer that feature.

Another source for infos about new versions is the German RISC OS magazine GAG-News and I do read c.s.a.announce as one of my sources (since I publish GAG-News) but obviously look on drobe (otherwise I'd not be posting this) as well as the odd other news portal. GAG-News is a bit different from the other magazines since it is in German so that one of the tasks I try is to mention the new software versions which are announced on the afoermentioned places - sometimes just with a few words and sometimes with full reviews since for quite a few users it is not easy to read the English information.

Thus my dear thanks to all involved, be it like R-Comp by supplying things to write about and by Chris by supplying information in addition to c.s.a.anounce etc.
