News for November 2015

   
Released System Information Unit v5.2.0
v5.2.0 of the System Information Unit has been released. This adds support for detecting the Windows 10 'November Update' aka TH2. Because MS have not flagged this as a service pack the only way to notice if it is installed is by examining the build number. So I've added a new ServicePackEx property to TPJOSInfo that returns details of service packs just like the original ServicePack method while also reporting any major updates it can find that don't appear as service packs. Yet another kludge, sadly! For full details of this and other changes, see the change log.

Last ever update of Game Of Life released
For over ten years I've been meaning to get back to my Game Of Life program and drag it up to date. Well, despite a false start a few years ago I never have. So I've decided to give it up as a bad job. This final release v5.2 just gives the old program enough of a polish to play nicely on modern Windows OSs, but that's all. The code underneath remains quite close to that I originally wrote in the 1990s when I was first tinkering with OOP and Windows GUI programming with Delphi 1. It's truly horrible! Why not just dump it? I'm sentimental!
