    David Thomas has updated Private Eye to version 2.51, a viewer for Sprites, DrawFiles, JPEGs, ArtWorks, GIFs and PNGs. It has recently gained some editing features including a bitmap effects system.Version 2.50 had a bug which could stop the effects window working on any OS earlier than RISC OS 4. (I was calling Wimp_AutoScroll which didn't exist up until WindowManager 4.00). Bug fix release 2.51, now available, fixes the problem and also tidies up some vanishing icons in the templates.

    Private Eye 2.51 can be downloaded from the MyRISCOS downloads section.

    Text > Draw 6055 Reads applications

    Chris Johnson has produced a brand new application, Text > Draw, here's Chris' USENET announcement: "Diagrams produced in Draw often need to be annotated using standard draw text objects. However, a draw text object can have only one text style. When annotating technical or scientific diagrams, for example, it is often necessary to include subscripts, superscripts, greek
    characters, mixed styles such as italic and normal, etc. Thus, to enter an equation or a chemical formula would involve the entry of a number of separate text objects as small as single characters, with subsequent careful grouping and alignment to construct the complete equation.
