Organizer IconOrganizer 2.26 at the Wakefield RISC OS Show

Saturday 22 April  

**Also available as Organizer On A Stick, loaded on to a memory stick/emulator, for use on a PC

Now on a 4Gb USB stick with the latest programme versions (RPCEmu 8.15, RO 5.22 and Organizer 2.26)

NEW IN v2.26: For the first time users can password protect Organizer and encrypt data. With users increasingly accessing their personal information over local networks and the internet, maintaining data security is ever more important. You can set a passphrase in Choices which will stop Organizer running if not entered correctly when you launch the programme. And you can then separately choose to encrypt data in the various sections.

You may, for instance, choose only to encypt the personal data in your Address book, particularly if you use Organizer to manage a small database for a company or other organisation, or keep private information in Notes. In addition, v2.26 has a number of smaller improvements, particularly to the operation of the Notes section, and several bug fixes.

Organizer 2 remains in full development for the RISC OS platform. Recent enhancements include a Sort facility for the Notes index; and the ability to add or cancel All items of an iCal diary import file, instead of having to click through each individually. Version 2.24, launched at last October's London Show, works closely with Sine Nomine's OSM mapping software, making it possible, with just a click on an Address entry, to find the exact locations of your contact.

The Planner display introduced in v2.23 at Wakefield last year has also proved very popular.

New facilities in v2.2x include Cloning, so that users who want to access their data from different systems on a local network can now do so easily and securely. Organizer 2.2x contains all the old features of Organizer - Calendar, Diary, Anniversaries, Address book, ToDo section - and in addition now you can:

  • Start the week on a Sunday for the Diary and Calendar
  • Order the Addresses by Organisation/Contact name 
  • Now possible to use 16-million colours instead of just 16
  • Improved operation of Export scripts for email lists, labelling etc
  • Opt for a single-page display to save screen space.

FULL PRICE for Organizer 2.26, for new users and users of earlier versions of Organizer is £35. The upgrade price from v2.24 is £20 and from v2.23 £30.


  Discount prices are available at the show and online for a limited period: New users £30; upgrade from v2.24 £15 and from v2.23 £20.

Organizer On A Stick

Version 2.26 is also be available on memory stick, loaded on to the RPCEmu emulator for operation on Windows PCs.

Show prices are: full price £35 (normally £40); and upgrade from v2.24 £20 and from v2.23 £25. This includes the zip file for loading on to RISC OS systems. Organizer On A Stick has been upgraded to latest versions of RPCEmu (v8.15), Risc Os (v5.22) and Organizer (v2.26)

Among the more than 170 changes from v2.10, there are also a host of minor enhancements, such an improved Calendar layout, the ability to change fonts in Choices, and more flexible units for Alarm setting (hrs:mins etc). 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 2.26 will receive free updates and continuing email support.
