Ah, yes, must have confounded them as they both, as you say, suffer from
this 'problem'.

Eh, R-Comp have no right to do this, they don't have permission to
distribute Transient! Let alone, altering it!

The only thing they have asked permission for is inclusion of StrongED
with the ARMini. Everything else that involves my software/themes is
without my knowledge and permission.

The version numbers are those from the latest public release by ROL.
These modules work fine on RISC OS 5 and are what I use on the Iyonix.
As such, they are the ones I normally test against. In future I may do
tests against the versions that are in RO 5 ROMS to see if there are any
obvious problems. I doubt however that such tests are going to thorough.

Best wishes to all for the New Year!
