The future of Director

Many of you will know of Director by Nick Craig-Wood. From it's
first release in 1994 through to the present day it has found it's
way into the hearts of many RISC OS users.

However, in recent years development of Director has crawled to
a standstill due to lack of time and other commitments.

Therefore I would like to announce a change in the way Director
is to be maintained.

Firstly, Nick has kindly let me take over development of Director.
He also said that any future versions of Director should be
licensed under the General Public License (GPL).

Nick has requested that any future development of Director
should be a collaborative piece of work. Therefore at his
suggestion I have setup a project on SourceForge
( to continue development of

Currently I would say that the version available from
SourceForge should be considered as a pre beta of version
0.27. That is not because it is full of bugs, it's just that it has not
been thoroughly tested. I do plan to release a beta of 0.27
shortly, with a full release after that.
