++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service ++

From: Sander Nyman <>

PM123 v1.32 has been released. PM123 is an excellent open source PM based
digital audio player for OS/2. It is capable of playing MP3's, WAV-files,
Ogg Vorbis audio files, and audio CDs. PM123 supports audio streaming,
plugins, skins, visualization and more! There is also excellent
documentation in .INF format.

Originally developed by Samuel Audet and Taneli Leppa, it is now being
developed by Dmitry Steklenev. Credit is also given to Marcel Muller for
several fixes, and new features.

This latest version includes MANY new features, fixes, and improvements
over version 1.31, and previous 1.32 betas. One GREAT improvement is
(FINALLY) support for ID3v2 tags. The first & only OS/2 player to have it.
See the history file for further details.

SW: CUPS 1.3.2

++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service ++

From: Mark Dodel

According to Paul Smedley's UNIX ports for OS/2 and eComStation website
CUPS (Common UNIX Printing System) has been updated to 1.3.2. Also
includes Ghostscript 8.62 and Gutenprint More information can be
found at

The main CUPS site (non-OS/2) is
"CUPS provides a portable printing layer for UNIX®-based operating systems.
It was developed by Easy Software Products and is now owned and maintained
by Apple Inc. to promote a standard printing solution. It is the standard
printing system in Mac OS® X and most Linux® distributions.

CUPS uses the Internet Printing Protocol ("IPP") as the basis for managing
print jobs and queues and adds network printer browsing and PostScript
Printer Description ("PPD") based printing options to support real-world

DOWNLOAD [Note: This is a 51MB file. And at that it only includes the
language Gutenprint ppd files.]

Ghostscript and Gutenprint require the LIBC 0.6.3 runtime dll from
CUPS is built using a custom libc064x.dll - a copy of which can be
downloaded from

CHANGES since the last release:
1) Updated to GPL GHostscript 8.62
2) Updated to Gutenprint (AKA 5.2.0-beta2)
3) Recompiled CUPS using libc064x in the hope that the spawn fixes help
make cupsd more stable

There is a eCups mailing list at Netlabs which can be viewed via Gmane at

Please, please post feedback. A list of printers that Gutenprint supports
can be found at

Further details on using CUPS on OS/2 or eComStation can be found at or in the readme.os2 file in the download

If you'd like to help support continued development of this project (and
many others) for OS/2 & eComStation, please consider making a donation
either via Paypal using the link on Paul's website, or using the Mensys
Online Store

++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service ++

From: Sander Nyman <>

A fellow named Mike Beltzner has created a pretty cool screencast of the
upcoming (June) Firefox 3.0. It only shows a few of the new features, but
they are pretty dazzling. The movie is only a few minutes long. Check it out.
