David Pilling has taken the TIFF loader from Ovation Pro for Windows and turned it into a Transloader for RISC OS. This means that applications such as Ovation, Impression and ArtWorks can benefit from loading TIFF images directly. Unlike TransFSI supplied with Ovation Pro, this new loader can handle CMYK TIFFs.
Martin Wuerthner has been busy this week, releasing two updates to the premier RISC OS vector drawing application ArtWorks2. Version 2.54 was released on Tuesday, which unfortunately contained a bug which prevented PDF or SVG export. However, this was soon rectified and version 2.55 was released on Thursday. Registered users can download it from the MW Software website.
