    Articles: August software round-up

    Wednesday, August 31, 2011 - 05:37 PM, (5766 Reads)

    August has seen a decent amount of activity, mostly relating to free software, although I forsee a wave of commercial activity in September and October as the RISC OS world gears toward the London Show, which takes place at the end of October. Here's what's been happening:

    The spreadsheet application PipeDream is now available for free download thanks to Gerald Fitton of Abacus Training. The previously commercial application is still considered an essential application for many RISC OS users, unfortunately it is not 32-bit compatible, so you'll need Aemulor to run it on an Iyonix or A9Home.

    Christopher Martin has released Murnong 2.13, a utility for fetching and decoding videos from the video sharing and video on demand site YouTube, this update corrects many issues that have developed after changes were made to the YouTube system. Chris has also released version 1.20 of FFmpeg and FFplay. The former is a multi-platform video and audio conversion system with FFplay providing a simple media player built upon it.

    Sine Nomine Software have updated DrawPrint, an application for printing image files over several pages. 1.30 sees improvements to the crop tool, the option to print all text in black and the manual has now been converted to HTML.

    luafox, a spreadsheet application designed with scientific data analysis and presentation in my has been updated to version 1.30. The man responsible for the project, Michael Gerbracht, has now added the ability to import data from files in the new MS Excel format .xlsx, batch import CSV files, and has added two statistical function, Skewness and Kurtosis. 35 Euros will get you a single user license for luafox, which will entitle you to free updates up until version 1.50.

    TimPlayer, a soundtrack player module has been updated to version 1.16. DigitalCD author André Timmermans has implemented a large list of bug fixes and improvements, a list too large to post here.
