Request for commercial developers
Do you sell software for RISC OS? If so, ROOL are very keen to speak to
you about an idea that could bring you more customers and bring more users

ROOL are planning to speak to active developers of free RISC OS software
over the coming weeks. Commercial developers should send an e-mail to
<firstname.lastname@example.org> including the following information:

Updated Fireworkz Pro released
R-Comp is pleased to announce the release of another update for Fireworkz
Pro. The big enhancements in this release related to the graph/charting
features and significantly improved DrawFile export.
As usual there were improvements to Excel import, as well as refinements
to the user interface in line with customer feedback.
Fireworkz Pro is an integrated word processor, spreadsheet, and database
package for RISC OS, with a superb level of integration - a table in a
letter is, in fact, a fully functional spreadsheet, which can then be used
to create a dynamic chart!
