WWIV 5.7.1 Pre-Release (Native OS/2 version + lots more)
Just wanted to let everyone know about all the work that continues with WWIV.
The latest pre-release 5.7.1 has lots of updates, fixes, new features, and now
includes a first time ever - native OS/2 version.

Not only that, but for those that run OS/2 (eCS), etc from a VM is familiar
with there are no vmware tools available. That has also changed.

Rushfan has created a VMware tools for OS/2 that will greatly improve using it
in a VM (far better mouse control, etc).

For all the latest, here are the links:

And for those that do NOT know, this is NOT an issue when running OS/2 OSes
under
Oracle VirtualBox as Oracle packages OS/2 drivers for that in the installer.
