News on the latest developments of my programs

Last updated on the 13th February 2001

This page details the latest news and developments of my programs and any of the ideas which I plan to add into the next versions. When I have new programs in the pipeline, I'll also post details of them here. Items which have already been completed will be displayed in red. This table shows the current status of my programs:

For your information, I've noted the order in which I intend to port my OPL16 programs to EPOC machines. Of course, JWIN has already been ported to a EPOC version!

1. Launch Pad v2.15F (3a/3c/3mx/Siena) will be ported to Launch Pad v1.00 (EPOC)
2. TimeMan v4.00F (3a/3c/3mx) will be ported to TimeMan v1.00(EPOC)

Please note: The above "order of porting" and final feature sets are always subject to change

As of yet, I have no plans to port PassApps to EPOC.


Here are all the developments which I currently have listed or planned. If you have any suggestions you'd like to see implemented in any of my programs, please mail me with them!

TimeMan v4.10 Developments

The current version of TimeMan is v4.00F which you can download from the TimeMan page.

I'm always open to more suggestions so please send me your ideas via e-mail.
TimeMan for EPOC v1.00 Developments

The current version of TimeMan for EPOC will be started soon! Please see the TimeMan for EPOC page.

Note: A lot of code in TimeMan for the 3a/3c/3mx uses system calls. I am currently delaying starting TimeMan for EPOC until new OPX's are released which will provide access to the more advanced functions I wish to include. So....

Current completion status of port: 00%
JWIN v1.60 Developments

The current release version of JWIN is v1.52F which you can download from the JWIN page.

I'm always looking for new ideas and items to implement, so if you have any, please mail me with them!


JWIN for EPOC v2.20 Developments

The current release version of JWIN for EPOC is v2.10F which you can download from the JWIN for EPOC page.


Launch Pad v2.20 Developments

The current version of Launch Pad is v2.15F which you can download from the Launch Pad page.

I have been asked to integrate a task switcher into Launch Pad. However, this depends on the time I have and the amount of code it needs. At the moment, this feature looks unlikely. If you want to try to persuade me to add this, or have any suggestions for other features, please mail me!


Launch Pad for EPOC v1.00 Developments

The current version of Launch Pad for EPOC is now underway! Please be patient as I try to create and tweak this program basically from scratch. It's coming along, but slowly. See the Launch Pad for EPOC page for more details.

Current completion status of port: 20%
PassApps v2.00 Developments

The current version(s) of PassApps are at v1.90F which you can download from the PassApps page.

Not much really! As always, I'm welcome to suggestions and appreciate them very much. If you have any for v2.0 of PassApps, please mail me! At the moment, there's only 1 thing on my list:

After initial investigations, this looks like it could be a tough one. I can easily write a front end for such a program, but it appears the Psion provides no effective way to check which files are about to be opened. If I was able to do this, then I would simply let the user create a database of files to protect and check each file name agaist files about to be opened. In theory, it's fine, but in practice, not so ;-(


SysBack for EPOC v2.20 Developments

The current version of SysBack for EPOC is v2.10F which you can download from the SysBack for EPOC page.


Siena Task List v1.30 Developments

The current version of Siena Task List is v1.20F which you can download from the Siena Task List page.

Basically, not much! I have no ideas for any major features which I personally want, so if you have an idea or suggestion, please mail me with it!


Play It Again v3.00 Developments

The current version of Play It Again is v2.00F which you can download from the Play It Again page.

Nothing! There is nothing special which I wish to see added in a future version, so if you have an idea or suggestion, please mail me with it!
