Organizer 2, the personal information manager for all Risc Os systems, will be attending the first Portsmouth Risc Os Show with its latest version available as a download or on memory stick
Version 2.20, launched earlier this year, has many improvements, including a new feature that allows users to access their data from different systems on a local network easily and securely.
“Cloning” the Organizer database from one system to another makes sure that the integrity of the data is maintained – particularly where there are many automatic actions programmed, whether backups, task alarms or journalling of information.
Users can make one system hold the master database, only making updates to that. That database can then be cloned to other systems as required, so that diary and contact information can be accessed wherever the user is working. The cloning can also be programmed to happen automatically or at set times.
Other significant new features since version 2.10 include:
* Option to start the week on a Sunday for the Diary and Calendar
* Facility to order the Addresses by Organisation/Contact name
* Now possible to use 16-million colours instead of just 16
* Improved operation of Export scripts
* Option to have a single-page display to save screen space.
* Works with all machines and Risc Os 3.50 or later, including Raspberry Pi.
In addition, there are many bug fixes, particularly to resolve issues with the growing number of RISC OS platforms. And, of course, those who upgrade to Organizer 2.20 will receive free updates and continuing support.
Full price for Organizer 2.20 will continue to be £30 and the upgrade price for users of v2.1x stays at £20.
Show prices, available at the show and online for a limited period, will be:
Full price £28

Version 2.20 will also be available on memory stick, loaded on to the RPCEmu emulator for operation on Windows PCs.
