It's great to see so many a variety of things coming through our platform, 2005 looks to be an interesting year for RISC OS! With all this wonderful development and our platform now working together so well, I wonder at times if it would be useful (or possible, or necessary) if more PC programme files could be converted from and to RISC OS. Some Word files and parts of XL spreadsheet stuff works, but could PowerPoint to OHP and other PC programmes be done? What are the key problems that stop these features (apart from MS legal software protection)??

    Version 0.09 of the character set conversion utility is available for download and future builds of NetSurf, which is among various applications that use it, will require this new release. The module can now perform conversions from the command line and supports ISO-8859-16 (Latin 10) plus a number of other fixes and tweaks.
