Hi all,

It's really great to see so much ongoing development with OS/2, eCS- despite some negative posts! I'd really like to get my grubby mits on the newest ver eCS 2.0, I think that it's currently at Beta 4. Could someone pls enlighten me as to when it will go GA and also pls advise on whether maybe I should purchase eCS1.2R now with Update Subscription (can't remember what it's called) and whether the subscription will allow update to eCS 2.0.

Many thanks,
John.

Nobody seems to want to give out any information as to when the GA version will be released. If you buy 1.2r you get whatever is released (currently beta4) for a period of one year -- so if you buy 1.2r now and the GA is released within one year you will get it free. I'm running beta4, and it seems really clean, so hopefully they are nearing release of the final edition of 2.0

That is good news (about it possibly coming out soon).

Many thanks for your input, think I'll surf on over to Mensys and take the plunge- another eCS user to join the community
Any possibility of posting some screenshots of beta4?

I have no screen shots right now. I had to delete the beta to do some testing for FM/2 which is being actively developed. All its icons and bitmaps are my contribution to its development.

Beta2 comes with new folder themes and there are a few I have also created and uploaded to Hobbes. I am presently working on a new folder theme based on the Amiga computer theme, but with a more modern look. I have just started and am in no hurry to finish provided I do finish. I plan on adding an additional icon to each multipage icon.

16x16
20x20
32x32
40x40
64x64

The 64x64 size will supports some of the work being done by the Russians.

I have attached a graphic if anyone is interested.
