Organizer IconOrganizer 2.28a at the Wakefield RISC OS Show

Saturday 27 April 2019  

**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 9.10, RO 5.24 and Organizer 2.28a)

Version 2.28a includes some enhancements and a number of bug fixes to v2.28. These include an improved interface to Sine Nomine's RiscOSM mapping software, adding pointer selection and a Geo Tag user field; printing and searching added to the ToDo section; and more than a dozen bug fixes, such as correcting small scrolling errors on some Diary layouts.

Please note this upgrade is FREE to existing users of v2.28.

NEW IN v2.28: Greatly enhanced layouts for the Anniversary and Diary sections, including the Planner.The success of the Planner, introduced in version 2.23, has led to a complete rewrite of the Diary and Anniversary layouts to make them multi-column and scalable. The bigger the screen, the more you can see, over longer time-frames - on a 2,560-pixel wide screen it's possible to view 19 weeks in the Planner. In the Diary four-week format, 36 weeks can be displayed. Tab/Backtab moves the display by column, making it much easier to see just what you want.

Other improvements in v2.28x include being able to resize Organizer by dragging the window left, right and down, as well as at the bottom corners; and an improved Print dialogue box to show and check the printable area allowed by the printer, plus a button to fill the area, greatly improving the printing of any Organizer pages. Multiple pages for sublists can now be set as default in the ToDo section. And under the bonnet, new routines in Assembler instead of Basic, add to improving speed and maintainability, such as with the Date-Time increment.

Organizer is committed to continuing development for all RISC OS platforms. These latest enhancements follow recent changes such as password security and encryption for sensitive information in any or all sections of Organizer; the link with Sine Nomine's OSM mapping software; and continued development of the Cloning feature, and iCal import and export, for working across a network and exchanging information with other software, such as Google Calendar.

Other recent enhancements include:

  • 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 2.28a, for new users and users of earlier versions of Organizer is £35. The upgrade price from v2.26 is £20 and from v2.24 £30.


 Discount prices are available at the show and online for a limited period: New users £25; upgrade from v2.26 £15 and from v2.24 £20.

Among the more than 200 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 2.28a will receive free updates and continuing email support.
