DrawWorks Third Millennium Installer (Oct. 2000)

Some users have reported problems with the DrawWorks Third Millennium installer. For example users with OS 3.5 or earlier may well find the installer refuses to function. This version of the installer is designed to fix these problems. If you are running OS 3.5 or earlier you MUST use this installer in preference to the one on the Third Millennium CD. If you have problems on RISC OS 3.6 or later then also try this version of the installer to see if the problem is fixed. For example some users with RISC OS 4 may find that the installer on the original CD reports that it cannot find a file. This version will solve the problem.

Some users with RISC OS 4 have also reported that DWTM installs correctly but crashes the computer when run. This new version of the installer should solve the problem.

DrawWorks New Millennium toolbar scrolling (Dec. 2000)

Some users have reported problems with very slow toolbar scrolling using DrawWorks New Millennium. This is caused by applications that hog the wimp when running (such as EasyFont V3). This patch re-instates the manual scrollbars as supplied with DrawWorks Millennium.

New version of !EFInstall for EasyFont (Sept. 2000)

This new version of the installer fixes the odd error messages that can occur when upgradeing from EasyFont V4 to EasyFont V 5.01. The installer supplied on the original CD may refuse to upgrade an existing version of EasyFont complaining that it cannot find something. Use the installer supplied here instead, but ensure the EasyFont CD is in your CD-ROM drive first.
