EZP@gerNG V2.3 released
As of today, a new version of the SMS, Paging and eMail software is available for free Download as an unregistered version.

As usual, all registered EZP@gerNG users will find an update archive in the download area, allowing them to update their registered software from version 2.2 to version 2.3.

At runtime, EZP@gerNG now creates the ezhttp.library V4.0, which, as a support library, provides several functions for easy HTTP communications.

V4's extended features will be needed for the Software Developers Kit (SDK) for external plugins to be released shortly, which will allow the creation of custom plugins, e.g. for transmitting messages via web gateways. (ps) (Translation: (cb)

BenderIRC 1.5 available
Cyborg writes:
On the homepage of BenderIRC there are new updates for BenderIRC and all the tools. The new version 1.5 of the IRC client comes with new features, and for the first time with a theme GUI that shows fast and clear what makes BenderIRC such a unique software. Yes, I've put the screenshot on the page, too :) You can e.g. grabb HTML links or advertising ads with help of the plugins which are part of the package. It would be vital to take a look at the manual to read about plugnins and security.

Who would like to do me a favour should tell me about bugs and not just chuck the program away silently;certainly bugs will get fixed. (ps) (Translation: (mj)
