CloudFS + Font Directory Pro
Rob Sprowson, Elesar Ltd
Monday 16th January 2017, 7:45pm

CloudFS is the first program to provide access to cloud based storage direct from RISC OS. By implementing it as a standard filing system access is just like any other local or network storage, enabling direct loading/saving from any desktop or command line program.

Initially supporting pCloud in Switzerland, with 10GB of free space, CloudFS's design allows for other cloud providers to be added in the future. Rob will be demonstrating CloudFS in action across several machines, and talking about how it is implemented and discussing the security aspects of cloud storage.

Elesar also have six(!) other projects in progress and the first of these to be released is a new version of Font Directory Pro. Originally by LOOKsystems, it has now been updated to fix a number of problems on the latest hardware and zero page versions of RISC OS.

MW Software have also provided an updated file scanner plugin for Artworks files containing text areas for use with FontDirPro.

While the software updates are complete, converting the large user manual is taking a bit longer than first thought. Rob will be able to demo the new release and answer any questions, but there will be a slight delay getting manuals printed and the final release ready.
