The Icon Bar: News and features: PinBoard 2.0 reaches Alpha9
 

PinBoard 2.0 reaches Alpha9

Posted by Mark Stephens on 07:38, 5/10/2021 |
 
The replacement PinBoard module (designed to be a backwards compatible repalacement for the existing module but also add lots of new features) has now reached version alpha9. I have been running previous versions on my Titanium for some time, so updated to the latest version.

The new module consists of 2 parts. There is an updated !PinSetup application and a Pinboard module. Installing them is just a matter of copying the files into the correct directories in !Boot and restarting. You can see the version displayed under Info and also there is a message at the bottom of the screen.
 

 
The new version is written in C and the source code is included, along with lots of documentation and a list of know issues.
 
The Pinboard modules adds a lot of extra features to the Pinboard (such as stickies, backdrops, saving files to desktop and more options on how the Mouse can be used to interact).
 

 
While is it still an alpha release, I have the module in daily use on my RISC OS machine and I have found it very stable.
 
The release is available from RISC OS Developments if you would like to help with testing it and I believe the plan is to include it in RISC OS once it is completed.

Good news: it should be close to release. Is it yet compatible with MoreDesk, or does that require changes in MoreDesk?

In the comments on thread 'September ROUGOL talk' I mention follow-up suggestions in the ROOL Forum post https://www.riscosopen.org/forum/forums/2/topics/15804?page=1#posts-126389 which includes the idea that Pinboard2 could perhaps offer a link directly to a search app (particularly for finding apps within one's system).
