SW: WPIView Version 1.0.0

2007-03-02
++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: herwig.bauernfeindDESPAM@DESPAMaon.at

Basically WPIView acts as a frontend for WIC.EXE, which comes with each
version of WarpIN.

The purpose of this program is to provide a simple tool for all those
WarpIN skeptics out there. WPIView enables the user to find out what is in
a WPI package and what this package is going to do to the system before it
is installed.

SW: PMView Pro 3.40

2007-03-07
++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: Mark Dodel

PMView Pro is a longtime, shareware image viewer converter for OS/2 and
windows.

http://www.pmview.com/os2new.html

03/01/2007 -PMView Pro v3.40 is now available for download. See list below
for information about issues resolved with this version.

The following bugs and problems are fixed in PMView v3.40:

1. If a file name with an apostrophe (e.g.
"d:\files_of_the_90's\image.jpg") is used on the command line, the
apostrophe is stripped and PMView cannot open the file. (There is a bug in
the GNU C-library, and this problem was introduced in PMView v3.10 when the
switch to to GNU C was made. PMView v3.40 works around the bug by
requesting and parsing the command line parameters from OS/2 instead of
using the C-library).
2. Starting PMView with the name of a file that does not exist may lock
up PMView. This bug was introduced in v3.30
3. When running a script for changing the resolution of an image that
has EXIF data with resolution tags, the value of those tags are not
changed. Consequently the resolution will appear unchanged unless the user
choses not to save EXIF data. This version corrects the problem and updates
the data in the corresponding EXIF tags.
4. Saving, Windows BMP: Some legacy programs have trouble reading color
mapped BMP files that has the bitmap field cclrUsed set to zero. This
version works around the problem by setting the field to the maximum number
of colors for the bitcount used.


Download an evaluation version at http://www.pmview.com/download.html
To update a registered version you must use the information received when
you registered PMView Pro.
