AMS: Both hzn and yourself seem to have misread what I said in the same way - so presumably my fault. The release of the Iyonix was covered by us in a four page reveiw by Mike Cook in Acorn User 255. Had I been editing AU at the time we would have made as much (if not more) as Tau Press did. What I've said here is that recent changes in RO5 don't warrant the same space as the release of the first PRMs since RO3. If Martin Wuerthner reports a minor bugfix it probably won't be reported - except as part of a bigger change in ArtWorks. That applies generally. It isn't bias.

If you think that there was a RO5 upgrade that we missed reporting and that was significant to potential purchasers of an Iyonix then let us know. Everyone has access through the Electronic Quill column or the second editorial spot. If you think developers aren't pushing their wares properly then you might suggest that they issue press releases!

As the release of the shared source of RO5 was greeted with a headline news piece and a two-page interview I'm at a loss to understand what AMS and hzn are expecting!

If AMS (or anyone else) wants to check out what Qercus provides then please ask for a sample copy - we are quite happy to provide one free of charge, giving plenty of time to read the copy, and with no commitment.
