MPdata+ 2.01 Released

My recently updated application to help keep tabs on your Member of the United Kingdom Parliament MPdata+ has received another update bringing it up to version 2.01

One of the updates is to fix a spelling mistake that had Debates spoken in last year was spelt Debates spoken in lasy year

Another update was to add an Early Day Motions by this MP button

Fixed a minor bug that if the constituency contained a comma the petition window and button did nothing and if you clicked on Early Day Motions button would cause a crash.

Better detection and reporting if wget is not seen by the computer.

This application requires a working internet connection and wget to work.

I have also created a short YouTube video of it in action.

MPdata+ Goes To Version 2.00

I have updated my application for RISC OS that helps you keep tabs on your Member of Parliament of the United Kingdom MPdata+ to version 2.00

The reason for a version 2.00 release was that the code was getting harder and harder to maintain, plus some changes to the application itself with some external links removed as they no longer exists and new feeds added.

I have uploaded a short YouTube video of it action.

This application requires a working internet connection and wget to work.

Why not buy some of my merchandise or donate a few quid if you want.

Scroll Wheel Support For BusTimes And TrainTimes

Two of my UK public transport timetable applications BusTimes and TrainTimes have had a minor upgrade bringing BusTimes to version 1.16 and TrainTimes to version 1.15

The only new thing in both updates is support for the scroll wheel on the mouse. It was a simple update to implement as it was setting in the template files.

Set Default Board With Vkeyboard

My virtual keyboard application for RISC OS Vkeyboard has been upgraded to version 1.07

New in this version is the ability to set the default keyboard when the application is first loaded, plus the iconbar text displays what keyboard bis in use.

One thing I’m thinking of adding is a numeric keypad to the application, I’m not sure on the best approach for this the following options I’m thinking about our:

  • Just make the keyboard bigger with the keypad on the side
  • A window pane on the side
  • A separate window selected by an option

I have a short YouTube video of it action.

Why not visit my merchandise store or my Ko-Fi pages.

Updates To TrainTimes

My application for UK train timetables TrainTimes has been upgraded to version 1.14

New in this version is the ability to save the station timetables on the current and future station timetable, which it’s sister application BusTimes received recently.

Also the contents of it’s scrap files are cleared on exit, it checks to see if wget is seen by the filer and if not informs the user and a more robust handling of open files on an error.

You can view a short YouTube video of the new features in action.

If you like my software you could give me a few quid through my Ko-Fi pages or buy some of my merchandise.

BusTimes Versions 1.14 And 1.15 Release

My UK bus timetable application BusTimes has been upgraded to version 1.14 and shortly afterwards to version 1.15

New features introduced in version 1.14 is the ability to save the bus stop timetable in either plain text or HTML formats, a better description of the bus stop on the bus stop window, if their is no route timetable for a bus then that icon is greyed out, scrap files are cleared on exit, if the application crashes any open files created by the application should be closed and gives a warning if wget is not found.

The update from 1.14 to 1.15 was that a slight bug was introduced when greying out the no route timetable the application did not ungrey those icons again.

I have a short YouTube video of it in action.

This application requires a working internet connection and wget to work.

The data comes from the Transport API site.

  • Closes open files on a crash

  • Pointer changes when over a clickable button that’s not obvious
