Digital Universe Version 1.5 is finished

The good news is that DU 1.5 for OS4 is finally completed.

The package can be obtained as a download, two choices of file are available an LHA file or an ISO image for creating an install CD. Both files contain artwork to create a CD label and cover.

The not so good news is that Dan Charrois of Syzygy who is organising the online ordering and distribution system is away for a while, so that there will be no download system until the end of November or early December.

However, for UK users and maybe western European users, Digital Universe can be provided on a CD sent by post. Users in other parts of the world would be best to wait until the online ordering and download service is available.

I will be finding out the postage costs for varoius European locations and arrange somehting soon. UK users that want a CD sent by post can do so now either by cheque or Paypal. Obviously the cost of posting a CD will be a bit more than the price for the downloadable version, but I have tried to keep this down to make it reasonable.

See http://www.digitaluniverse.org.uk/ and follow the Ordering link for more details.


I will get around to posting a more official "Software News" item later this week.


The other good news is that work has already started on v1.6 which will be a free upgrade to v1.5.

I hope he gets back soon. Paying for this should be dead easy for me since I'm only a few hours from his house.

I have an emails with directions on how to get there if you want ;)

I think ordering online and downloading would be easier though.


Bill.


BTW. Thanks for demo-ing DU at AmiWest 2006.

@Raziel and others from Europe.


I do actually know the cost to Germany as I have already been asked.

What I do not know is the Post Office definition of "Europe" and where that zone covers exactly.

It will be safe to say that Germany, France, Benelux countries, Italy, Spain and Portiugal would all be the same price. Not too sure about Scandinavia and eastern Europe yet.

I will update my web pages shortly. for ordering from the above areas.

Edit: Web pages have now been updated.


The other thing is that for upgrading from v1.03 people will need to let me know that they will be sending their old keyfile. I guess Dan's system will take care of that automatically but PayPal doesn't so those upgrading it will need to email me too.

As far as I know the postage cost for all the members of European Union is the same.

Can I be ignorant, what is it?
Visited the website and there doesn't seem to be an "about" section?

Thanks.
