I am pleased to announce that, as planned, to coincide with Soft Rock Software’s 21st birthday, a 32bit version of WebChange is available for RISC OS users to download, free of charge from the WebChange website.

The software is technically still a beta version – the last of the main functions having been added over the last few days – but most of what is there has been stable for some time; in house testing hasn’t shown up any significant problems, and any that have been reported by people using the development versions have been dealt with. Provided no new problems are found, the version now available will eventually have its version number bumped up to 3.00.00.

The one thing missing is a user manual and, barring any other problems, that is the next thing to be done. In the meantime, the manual for the old 26bit version is available from the WebChange site, and further information can be found by looking at the mailing list archives. I hope that anything not covered (or which has changed) in the old manual or through the archives should be reasonably self explanatory. Anything else, along with any support queries, should be raised on the mailing list.

The full announcement, as posted to comp.sys.acorn.announce, is available here.

Unfortunately, the riscository.co.uk domain is currently unavailable, and therefore the mailing lists provided at that domain are not at this time functioning.

The problem was called by a renewal issue with the domain registration; specifically that I was blissfully unaware it was due for renewal, having received no notifications or requests for payment from the registrars. As a result, the domain has been suspended.

Steps have now been taken to rectify this and, provided nothing else goes wrong, things should return to normal soon.
