[StrongED] StrongMen 1.26 available

Hi All,

StrongMen 1.26 is now available for download from:

This release of StrongMen fixes several problems that occurred on newer
platforms such as the Iyonix and BeagleBoard. It was thought to be fully
32-bit compatible but some remaining issues were found. For the
BeagleBoard it was necessary to make some changes to way memory was
addressed, most of the work had fortunately already been done for
StrongED (which shares the StrongLib library used).

The opportunity was taken to split the source into several files to make
it more manageable. Throwback and tracking support were added to make it
easier to find out where things went wrong in the case of a failure.

This release should be fully compatible with the previous release so
your current StrongMenu file should work without problem. When the file
StrongMenu lives inside StrongMen then just copy it to this new version.

When the StrongMenu file is held in Choices then it will be moved to a
subdirectory called 'StrongMen' inside Choices. This is more in keeping
with the RISC OS Style Guide.

Feedback is, as always, most welcome.
