The whole application is using REXX as scripting language to extend functionality and to customize. Some things we're working on for a future release are:
  • Newsreader plugin
  • Media plugin to organize your mp3/DVD/VHS/SVCD/etc.
  • a syncing application as a separate project (GSync) to synchronize cell-phones/handhelds

The Netlabs EPM Distribution Project launches its website (from Christian Langanke)
The new project of netlabs.org, named the Netlabs EPM Distribution (NEPMD), hast just launched its new website at http://nepmd.netlabs.org.

The project team invites you to visit the site and learn about the benfits and new functionality, that this distribution provides to users of OS/2 and eComStation. All efforts target the developers as well as plain endusers - if you don't know, how EPM can do for you, you have missed a lot!

In opposite to the EPM normally shipped with OS/2 and eComStation, the Netlabs EPM Distribution intends to make installation, configuration and usage of additions to the EPM so easy that every average user can perform all these tasks without any problems. The first version of the Netlabs EPM Distribution may not achieve these goals in all aspects already, but it is already a huge step forward and an important first milestone on the road ahead.

See also the two sessions on the Netlabs EPM Distribution at Warpstock Europe 2002!

The german Magazine "PC Magazin Kreativ" is about to publish it's issue No. 11 with the subject Operationgsystems and Emulators. The magazine comes with a DVD that contains eCS and VirtulPC 5 (both demos). Original german message:
Das PC Magazin KREATIV Heft Nummer 11 beschäftigt sich mit Alternativen zu Windows. Der Artikel zur eCS auf 4 Seiten ist durchweg OS/2-freundlich gehalten. Ein kurzer Auszug: "OS/2 bietet ..... Stabilität. Das Betriebssystem enthält einen hervorragenden Hardware-Manager, ein excellentes Speichermanagement, ein ausgereiftes Multitasking und ..... eine hochskalierbare Multi-Threading-Implementierung."

Inhalt der beiliegenden DVD:
Eine ISO-Datei für eine Spezial-Edition von eComStation, die nur von CD startet (und gebrannt werden muß), und eine Trial-Version von eComStation für Virtual-PC 5.0 (für die man ein Windows braucht).

Anm. der Red.: Besonders beeindruckend ist der Titel der Zeitschrift: Betriebsysteme und Emulgatoren. Hoffentlich wurde die Zeitschrift nicht ausschließlich von Ernährungswissenschaftlern zusammengestellt ;-)
