The OS Quest Trail Log #14: Just News & Links

It’s been a slow week on the quest. Everything either made it into a post already or is part of a post I’m working on. So it will just be news & links today.

Software Upgrades

FlyingMeat.com: Acorn Release Notes – Acorn image editor has been updated to version 1.03. I’ve been using this as my editor for what little image work I do. I didn’t have any problems with the upgrade.

Jungle Disk 1.46 has been released. It adds support for file archiving ad automated cleanups. While I liked Jungle Disk I still haven’t found a regular use for it so I haven’t tried the update.
