Thanks for the "heads-up", Chris :)

In the meantime, I'd like to stress a few points about David Pilling 
software, as it is easy to get carried away and become confused with 
all the postings flying around.

Here's how things stand for ARMini users:

     1) Both DPlngScan and Ovation Pro work on the ARMini with 
     shipping OS versions.

     2) DPlngScan works best if the !Run file is modified to 
     change DPlngScan$Memory to -1 (rather than -2).  I *think* 
     it is that way round - I don't have my machine on to check.  
     Even if you don't make this change, you won't lose data to 
     any problems.

     3) The SpriteExtend bug which affects both OvPro and 
     DPlngScan does not apply to ARMini users, as it only exists 
     in OS builds that *we have NOT shipped*.  Since this has 
     already been fixed, it will NOT occur on any un-modified 

As such, ARMini users can rest assured that their favourite apps will 
be fine, and will continue to be monitored/supported :)

Sorry to stick my oar in, but I'm just trying to ensure this list 
remains an *ARMini* list (for customer reference), and not a general 
beagle/omap one.

As I said in another thread, we're aiming for an OS update in 
Aug/Sept, which will add new functionality and speed improvements.
