On ArtWorks 2.9 set for Wakefield 2009 launch:

The feature list seems to be growing by the hour! Exciting! Just seen that Martin has added the much-requested "delete unused colours in a document". I'm really looking forward to what promises to be a good mix of swish new features and user-requested enhancements to the ArtWorks interface.

On Google to fund another round of NetSurf development:

I very much hope that someone will apply to work on the "Improved RISC OS front end" category. Although the RISC OS frontend is still the most complete, there's some catching up to do with new features. For instance, it would be fabulous to have the **option** to use Tabs for browsing like some of the other versions of Netsurf.

Well done to the Netsurf team!

On Animation and typing applications really released:


Thanks, that's appreciated. Wishing you MUCH success at Wakefield. You've got some great new products: updates from RComp always put a smile on my face -- and a smallish hole in my bank balance ;-)

On Wakefield 2008 show preview:

PDF import into ArtWorks works wonderfully well (even in the pre-release versions). For the first time, multiple pages can be exported from EasiWriter into ArtWorks, which is brilliant. Thanks Martin! Being able to edit *existing* PDF documents is a significant step forward for RISC OS. Hurrah!
